With Wrestlemania 34 right around the corner, WWE has partnered with GLU to soft-launch WWE Universe. While the game is currently only available in New Zealand, there's a simple loophole that you can exploit to download the game right now and play as your favorite WWE wrestler.
If you've always wanted a matchup between Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Phenomenal AJ Styles, WWE Universe has you covered — you can play as your favorite superstar regardless of generation. You can also level up your wrestlers to make them more potent, and the game even features a simplified storyline highlighting the feuds that makes the franchise so addicting.
Featuring console-quality graphics and intuitive time-based one-touch controls, WWE Universe is an awesome way for wrestling aficionados and gamers alike to kill time. So if you'd like to give WWE Universe a try right now and pull off an RKO with cruel precision, keep reading to find out how.
WWE Universe will run on iPhones and iPads that were released after 2013 (excluding the iPhone 5C) as long as they're on iOS 9.2 or higher. Since the game is only available in New Zealand, you'll need to create a New Zealand-based Apple ID before you can download the game.
Creating an App Store login for a different country is simple — just sign up for a new Apple ID using a valid email account and a realistic home address for New Zealand. From there, simply sign into your iOS device using your newly-created spoof account. For more on this topic, check out the following link for a detailed guide.
Once you've set up an App Store account based in New Zealand, installing the game will be the same exact process as installing any other game or app. So either head to the App Store and search for WWE Universe to download it, or tap the following link from your iOS device.
Please note that as a soft-launched game, WWE Universe is still in development and is far from a finished product. So don't be surprised if you experience some minor issues while playing. In our testing, the game ran perfectly fine on an iPad Pro, iPhone SE, and iPhone 8 that were all running iOS 11.2.2. Are you enjoying WWE Universe as much as we are?
