Salutations super slammers, company mouthpiece Dave K here with more backstage info straight from the dev room. Today I’d like to break down the most anticipated new feature—online matchmaking!
If you want to jump in on the action, you can search for a Quick Match (find all open rooms, parameters be damned), a Custom Match (narrow down results with search parameters), or host a match by creating your own room.
As host, you can set the number of participants, the opponent to either CPU or human, playstyle (“Pro Wrestling” if you want to work an entertaining match, “Cement” if winning is the only thing that matters), game mode, match rules (deathmatch, MMA etc.) and connection speed. For VS human matches you can set the desired skill level of your opponent (“Skill Level” is self-evaluated, be honest!) and for VS CPU matches you can set the upper-limit on edit points to keep wrestlers evenly-matched.
You can also lock the room with a password for private matches with friends.
Single 1-v-1 matches will be available at launch while CPU-vs-CPU simmed matches will support up to 4 wrestlers. We plan to increase the number of available participants during Early Access.
And that’s about the long and short of it. I’ll see you (and the rest of the world) in the ring when the gong sounds on July 10th!
Until then, stay strong.
