WWE 2K23’s latest update 1.10 has revived the “fatigued finishers” feature, much to the delight of fans. The game was released earlier in the year, collecting an array of affirmative reviews, and is often hailed as the best WWE video game in recent times, possibly the top pick since 2K Sports assumed control from THQ.
A Return to Familiar Gameplay: ‘Tired Finishers’ Back in WWE 2K23
Many admirers of WWE 2K23 have lauded the game’s avant-garde graphics, novel game modes such as WarGames, and an extensive roster of characters. While the majority of WWE enthusiasts have found satisfaction with the game’s offerings, it has not been immune to critique. The WWE 2K23 Showcase mode has been the subject of disappointment for some, while others have expressed discontent over missing elements like the fatigued finishers.
For those new to the jargon, fatigued finishers, also known as exhausted or tired finishers, are features that were seen in past WWE video games. The mechanic entails wrestlers potentially falling to the ground after executing their finishing move, if they are particularly exhausted. This element brings an extra layer of excitement to WWE 2K23 matches, and the stamina/fatigue feature is totally optional as it can be toggled on or off in the game.
New Game Dynamics: What Update 1.10 Brings to WWE 2K23
The most recent patch notes for WWE 2K23 have highlighted the reintroduction of this feature, and eager fans have quickly tested it in the game. Video clips are surfacing of WWE icon John Cena executing his Attitude Adjustment finishing move before falling to the ground, which prevents an immediate pinning of Randy Orton, adding a twist to the tail end of matches.
With the recent update live, players can experience other instances of fatigued finishers in WWE 2K23. Alongside this feature, update 1.10 has also tackled a range of persistent technical issues that have been troubling the game since its inception. Additionally, two new playable characters, Mia Yim and Candice LeRae, have been added to the game’s roster. Future updates for WWE 2K23 are expected to arrive, accompanied by DLC packs that promise to further bolster the roster.
