Welcome Here are the latest news I got for Smackdown 5. I will keep you updated ASAP hope you like the news so far....
While you can't argue with the razzamatazz of World Wrestling Entertainment - the girls, the fireworks, the terrible, terrible acting - SmackDown 5 will be going back to basics and focusing more on the actual wrestling. Submissions and grapple holds will play a much bigger part this time round, so it won't be as simple as a simple button press to pin your opponent. Now when you grab your opponent, there will be numerous chances to either inflict more pain, or for your opponent to return the favour - apparently each grapple and submission will be like a mini-game in itself. Player fatigue will also play a bigger part ie. having a chair smashed repeatedly in your face might just make your concentration wander a tad. Believe it or not, Yukes are attempting to add a little more realism into the series. For example, if you want to perform a huge finishing move on your opponent, you'll have to drag him into the centre of the ring to do it. Also, size and weight of your opponents will be considered. Dweebs like Spike Dudley won't be able to powerslam behemoths like Hulk Hogan. That would be stupid. The Season mode is also going under the knife, with a new risk/reward system looking likely to be added. More organic environments are also being considered, with more interactivity. If you ask us, you need to get rid of those awful faux-3D crowds. Just saying. Most promising of all, however, is the decision to let the (slightly butch) ladies of the WWE take a bigger role. "The divas haven't played enough of a role in the previous games," said an insider. According to sources, the 'girls' will be used in a more 'sexual sense' - this probably means the WWE's infamous Bra & Panties matches and the Mud Wrestling bouts will make some sort of appearance. Finally, seeing as Sony have finally pulled their finger out and announced their Euro online plans, THQ were questioned about an online element to SmackDown 5. They gave a suitable cagey response, saying the challenge was out there, but if you can only download new content, what's the point? So, if it does make it online, expect full player-player battles to be fought over the web. Nice, but don't hold your breath. We reckon next May's E3 in LA will shed more light on SmackDown 5, so keep it Upwire.
