WWE 2K14's nostalgia-fuelled single-player campaign will be named 30 Years of WrestleMania, publisher 2K has announced.

The mode will include more than 45 iconic matches from throughout the sport's history, including Hulk Hogan versus Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania 3.

Other legends set to return include The Rock and John Cena. The mode's full roster will be unveiled next weekend at WWE SummerSlam Axxess.

2K has recreated vintage arenas, crowds, ring attire and entrances to recreate each event, and you'll be rewarded for authentically replicating match moves and outcomes.

Matches will be introduced with catch-up videos summarising the storylines going on at the time, and you can also toggle VHS-style video filters on older matches dating from the '80s and '90s.

"The moments that happen in the WWE, the moments that happen in WrestleMania, the moments that define WrestleMania and the WWE live forever... They're much more akin to the big fight in a Rocky movie," WWE star Paul 'Triple H' Levesque said. "It's about characters and creating moments in time that last forever. And we've done that for the last 30 years with WrestleMania."
