WWE 2K20 was in such a sorry state when it released back in October. When I reviewed it, I couldn’t believe that I was playing “the jabroni of pro-wrestling games.” We were even surprised when it managed to hit the charts as one of Steam’s top-selling games in October. As time passed, we saw a few updates, though problems remained aplenty. Well, it looks like players are getting an early holiday present. That’s because WWE 2K20 now has patch 1.06. The update adds custom championships/create-a-championship while fixing numerous nagging issues with Universe Mode and the create-a-wrestler (CAW) feature.
In case you need a reminder, here’s a compilation of WWE 2K20‘s glitches from YouTube via Top10Wrestling:
WWE 2K20’s patch 1.06 – Custom championships and other fixes
The most important change in patch 1.06 for WWE 2K20 is none other than the inclusion of custom championships. The create-a-championship feature has been around in many games. It wasn’t in WWE 2K20 when it launched since it caused massive problems for the developers. Now that it’s back, we’ll definitely see some awesome fan-made custom championships such as those from All Elite Wrestling (AEW), New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), or even the WWE-specific ones that are missing in the game (such as the 24/7 Championship and NXT UK Women’s Championship).
WWE 2K20‘s patch 1.06 also addresses other existing issues such as:
- Crashes due to downloading create-a-wrestler/CAWs, or CAWs with numerous logos and tattoos.
- Missing logos for custom arenas, arenas that are completely missing, or arenas that end up getting reset.
- Glitches when you equip your CAWs with armbands.
- Glitches when you attempt to edit your CAW’s head size or use the face deformation feature.
- Faulty collision detection and targeting.
A working WWE Universe Mode?
With the above changes and more, including the ability to have more matches in your show along with proper title reign stat tracking, it looks like we could be seeing an improved Universe Mode. This is something that fans have been waiting for since WWE 2K20‘s launch. Too bad it took two months to get to this point. And likewise, there might be a few more issues that we’ll see down the line.
WWE 2K20‘s patch 1.06 is at a whopping 25 GB in size due to file compression. It’s also the fourth update for the game, and it seems to be a compilation of other tweaks that weren’t released owing to the size and number of fixes. You can find the full patch notes from 2K’s website.
