WWE 2K19 Introduces New “Towers” Challenges

WWE 2K19 will introduce a new Towers mode, in which you’ll be pitted against a string of opponents in a row. The mode will boast rosters filled with superstars, along with varying win conditions and limitations to challenge you to think outside the box (or ring).

The official site details the new mode. Towers will come in two varieties: Gauntlet, which must be finished in one session without a loss, and Steps, which let you play at your own pace. Opponents will range from current wrestlers to WWE Legends. The goal for a Tower will vary between conditions like beating a score or simply making it to the end, with buffs to you or your opponent peppered in for variety. The match types can range from Steel Cage and Submission to Iron Man.

“2K Towers” will feature special themes or homages to a match type. 2K Towers will also host exclusive “Legends Lore” to highlight memorable history and moments from some of the WWE Legends featured in the game. A separate MyPlayer Tower will use your own created character to find regularly updated Towers that count toward your PPV event and Road to Glory qualifications.

Finally, cover athlete AJ Styles is getting his own “Million Dollar Tower.” It will feature ultra-tough opponents set at high difficulties, and your health won’t regenerate between matches. 2K is using it as a launching point for a contest called the WWE 2K19 Million Dollar Challenge. If you can manage to beat the AJ Styles Tower on PS4 or Xbox One, record a promo video of yourself and include visual proof that you finished the Tower by showing off the proper Achievement or Trophy. Then submit your promo video through the Million Dollar Challenge site for a chance to win a trip to Wrestlemania 35. There, you’ll compete with the other finalists, followed by AJ Styles himself, for a chance at one million dollars.

WWE 2K19 is notably skipping the Switch this year in favor of the other consoles and PC. It’s releasing on October 9, complete with some special editions.

Chasm review for PC | PC Invasion

PC Invasion writes, “Chasm delivers a sense of nostalgia and polish with its visuals and design. Although these alone could set the stage for the rest of the game to showcase a fun experience, I never really found a great deal of satisfaction in completing it.”

Some Great PS4 Games On Sale On The PlayStation Store This Week (US Only)

Two sales are going on at the PlayStation Store this week instead of one. The bigger of the two is the Double Discounts sale, in which PlayStation Plus members get double the amount off that non-members get. Then there’s the Totally Digital sale that focuses on digital-only games. PS Plus members also get an additional savings in this one, making it a great time to join if you haven’t already. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of this week’s discounts.

Quite a few big games are on sale, with prices dropping to particularly appealing lows for PS Plus members. One of the newest big games to get a discount is the cinematic sci-fi-themed Detroit: Become Human, which is about androids who begin acting as if they’re alive. It’s on sale for $50 ($40 for PS Plus members). Another recent one is Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, on sale for $51 ($42).

Far Cry Primal (AKA “the one without guns”) is down to $32.50 ($15). While this Stone Age-set title doesn’t have modern weapons, it does have prehistoric pets like sabertooth tigers to help you rip through enemies. Another game that’s set a long time ago (but in a galaxy far, far away) is Star Wars Battlefront II, on sale for $39 ($18).

Racing enthusiasts can pick up Burnout Paradise Remasteredfor $30 ($20). It goes on sale often, but it usually doesn’t drop as low as that PS Plus price. Survival game fans can download Conan Exiles for $40 ($30). And if you want to use hacker technology to take down the bad guys in San Francisco, you can grab Watch Dogs 2 for $40 ($20).

If you’re looking for something a little different, you can grab the relaxing Walden, a Game for $14 ($9.50). It has you hang out at a serene cottage by a lake while reading sections of the titular classic of American literature. Also unique but with a little more action is What Remains of Edith Finch, on sale for $15 ($10). In this creative title, you play through the final moments of a number of characters’ lives. Spoilers: everyone dies.

A whole lot more games are on sale this week on the PlayStation Store. You can find more of our picks below, or peruse the full list of discounts here.
