2K Announces Gameplay Additions for WWE® SuperCard
New collectible card game, with more than three million downloads in less than one month, continues raising the bar as 2K and WWE’s most popular free-to-play mobile game to date
New York, NY – September 17, 2014 – 2K today announced new content for WWE® SuperCard, the larger-than-life, action-packed WWE collectible card game for mobile devices. Available now for download on iOS and Android devices, WWE SuperCard players can experience two new gameplay modes – the People’s Champion Challenge and The Ladder – with each delivering the best rewards yet to increase rankings and assemble the ultimate WWE roster. In addition, players can now purchase Ultra Rare Card Packs, which guarantee the chance to obtain Ultra Rare or higher value cards.
With more than three million downloads since the game’s launch on August 14, 2014 and an average rating of 4.5/5 stars on the App Store for iOS devices, as well as 4/5 stars on Google Play, WWE SuperCard has cemented its position as the most successful WWE-branded game for mobile devices to have ever been launched by 2K or WWE.
“With an unprecedented number of downloads thus far, the worldwide groundswell to build the ultimate roster in WWE SuperCard is both passionate and incredible,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “We’re excited to increase the intensity with the People’s Champion Challenge, present an accessible way for players to climb the ranks in The Ladder, and give fans what they want to improve their rosters with Ultra Rare Card Packs.”
Key features in the WWE SuperCard update include:
PEOPLE’S CHAMPION CHALLENGE – In this week-long event, players will choose between two WWE Superstars in a match corresponding with a featured WWE live event, such as the upcoming WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view. Through competition in exhibition matches, players will accumulate victory points for themselves while adding to the total point count of all other players who selected the same WWE Superstar. Competing against and defeating higher ranked opponents will help players obtain the highest number of points. At the end of the week, players will gain access to high profile cards featuring the victorious WWE Superstar; the higher their rank based on point total, the more lucrative the reward;
THE LADDER – This new gameplay mode offers novice and seasoned players valuable replay incentives, as each game counts toward gaining ground to reach the top of the ladder. The higher players climb, the more reward tiers they will unlock, with progress indicators showing victories, prizes accumulated to date and how many wins are needed to unlock a new reward. Players will compete for a variety of coveted rewards, including various rarities of John Cena and Paige player cards exclusive to the mode, as well as stamina cards and credits;
ULTRA RARE CARD PACK – Inspired by customer demand, the Ultra Rare Card Pack enables players to acquire Ultra Rare or higher value cards for addition to their rosters. This new card pack will exist alongside other card packs currently on sale and will be available for $9.99.
WWE SuperCard challenges players to build teams of WWE Superstars, Divas and Legends, train them to their full potential, battle in various match types and test their luck in high stakes tournament action. Featuring more than 400 cards in active play, with each card representing one of seven different rarity levels, WWE SuperCard delivers an extensive array of collectible content with high replay value. In addition, WWE SuperCard enables players to enhance their experience through the purchase of individual card packs.
Developed by Cat Daddy Games in conjunction with Visual Concepts, both 2K studios, WWE SuperCard is available now for download on the App Store for iOS devices, including the iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, as well as the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore for Android™ devices.
