WWE 2K24 introduced plenty of new modes and also retains much of the previous traditional match types. So, here is a detailed breakdown of all the new modes, as well as all match types. 

WWE 2K24 features all the staples you’d expect from the long-running wrestling franchise, from a packed roster to many fan-favorite modes. 2K Games didn’t close its doors and introduced some eye-catching new match types either.

Headlining all the new additions in WWE 2K24 is returning Showcase of Immortals mode. Celebrating the storied history of the biggest event in WWE, WrestleMania, the mode will let you relieve 21 iconic matches across 40 years of its lifetime. 

Of course, there is more than one addition in modes and match types. Check below to see all the game modes in WWE 2K24 and what each of them is about.

All WWE 2K24 game modes

WWE 2K24 will feature the traditional game modes of the WWE 2K franchise, as well as some new and eye-catching match types that could become permanent additions. Below is a list of all the modes, as well as details on them.

  • MyRise
  • MyFaction
  • 2K Showcase of the Immortals
  • MyGM
  • Universe
  • All-new match types


The traditional career mode makes a return to the franchise. WWE 2K24 presents the opportunity to create your own wrestler to compete in men’s (Undisputed) or women’s (Unleashed) wrestling. The goal is the same as every year: to turn that new WWE Recruit into the greatest wrestler of all time.

Both MyRise opportunities will feature two new storylines:

  • Undisputed: In the men’s career mode, players have the opportunity to enter the WWE Universal Championship bracket. Your first objective? Snatch the belt from Roman Reigns, become the WWE Universal Champion, and defend the title for as long as possible.
  • Unleashed: In the women’s career mode, players will be able to play as both the manager and wrestler of a highly popular independent wrestling brand debuting in the WWE. This setting leads to a new question: Can they increase the popularity of their brand and in turn become the top winner in the WWE?
