New WWE game announced

Now with "added realism."

THQ has announced that a new WWE wrestling game is currently in development for the PS2.

WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW 2006 will include all-new features such as the Momentum System, which is designed to "recreate the real life emotional peaks and valleys of a wrestling match."

Then there's the new Stamina System which is there to make you play more strategically, conserving your energy to ensure your wrestler stays on top form throughout the match. We're told that the online mode has been improved and expanded, too.

"WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW showcases all the excitement and energy of the WWE," said THQ bigwig Peter Dille.

"This title is primed to deliver the most intense wrestling gameplay along with true-to-life graphics, resulting in the deepest and most realistic wrestling experience ever."

There's no word yet on which WWE Superstars will be appearing in the game, but if history is anything to go by you can expect a few old favourites as well as rising stars - not to mention, of course, the lovely Divas and their jolly Bra and Panties matches.

WWE SmackDown! Vs. RAW is out in the autumn.
