WWE '13
First WWE '13 Screenshots Leak Onto the Square Circle

It looks as though this year, WWE '13 will be going with CM Punk as its cover star and focus after last year saw Randy Orton posing for the box art. And these first leaked screenshots also go heavy on the straight-edge action, showing CM Punk performing some of his high risk moves.

These nine leaked screenshots come from, which also carries a description for this year's iteration in THQ's popular wrestling franchise. Apparently, WWE '13 will be bringing a grittier attitude into the ring, as well as an all-new story mode.

"Relive the Attitude Era of WWE in an all-new, breakthrough, story mode," reads the blurb. "The new WWE Live presentation system features a completely overhauled audio system and Spectacular Moments. WWE ’13 will be the boldest, smoothest, and most immersive, WWE simulation to date."

So there you have it. First last week's leaked WWE '13 video and now this. WWE '13 is set for release on November 1st, 2012. You can check out the first nine screens in the gallery, and a handful of the shots featuring the likes of Big Show, Chris Jericho, Mark Henry, Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin below. And is that Mankind that Stone Cold is stomping?

I'm just waiting for them to go back to the HCTP format that actually worked and was fun. :(

I've played them all on the ps3 and I must say the ps2 smackdown vs raw still had the best gameplay of them all, the ps3 1s seem a bit slow and I don't like doing the moves with the analog stick.

Haven't played a Wrestling game in a while, I thought it was hilarious to Irish Whip someone up the ramp and they ran a half marathon before stopping.

I'm sorry to say it, but this game is utter crap to play alone, but with some good friends it's so much more enjoyable. :3 But in comparison any other let's-release-a-new-game-every-fucking-year games, this is the only one I'm looking forward to.

I haven't got the last couple of games because they were starting to get a bit repetitive but as #11 says, with the screens of old style character/arenas I might just give this one a whirl.

I love the Attitude Era theme they are having. When I saw Mankind vs Stone Cold in the trailer and the Attitude logo on the real WWE '13 cover on Raw I was excited

Having played almost every wrestling game released within the past ten years.
I can give my opinion and say that WWE 12 is the best wrestling game released
after HCTP. The biggest problem in the game is that pinning and irish whip
are under the same button, which is a huge problem in games more than two wrestlers.
If you want to irish whip other wrestler out of the ring and then pin the
guy who is lying down, you'll most likely endup just pinning the guy and looking stupid.

They promised a smarter AI but they still only pin you when combuter
reconizes your gonna lose. Also theres less ways to use the announcer tables than before.
The backstage matches are the most awful garbage and they should just drop em off. Hoping THQ focuses on these problems,lets get a bigass legend roster and the game is perfect.

another year another platinum. will preorder, finish it inside 2 weeks and then sell it and wait for the next one, these games have little replay value, especially online with the sad prestige levellers cheating their arses off.

i hope this has minimal online trophies like last year, upload some stuff, download some and rate them and let someone beat you once online, then get back to the fun.
