A new update has been released for WWE 2K22 as patch 1.12 is unleashed on the wrestling simulator. Here’s everything we know about the patch. 

It has become a widely accepted consensus that WWE 2K22 is one of the best wrestling simulators to come from the franchise in a long time. 

Getting the franchise back on track, WWE 2K22 was a return to form as the gameplay, mechanic, graphics, and the return of beloved modes like MyGM. But with all its glory, the game was riddled with game-breaking bugs.

WWE 2K22 update: Main fixes

Announced via a tweet from the official WWE 2K22 Twitter account, patch 1.12 was released on May 16, 2022.

Three of the patch’s most significant focuses added more playable MyRISE characters, new moves to the Signature and Finisher categories, plus improvements to the game’s gameplay, visual fidelity, and mechanics. 

WWE 2K22’s fan base complained about the game’s lack of playable MyRISE characters, such as wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Shinsuke Nakamura. They were included in the game mode but weren’t playable, but the patch remedies that issue.
