Okay, this is just getting silly. 2K Games has announced the pre-order bonus for WWE 2K16… and it’s Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Governator may never have really set foot inside the squared circle, but he is a WWE Hall of Famer and “longtime fan” of the franchise, so… yeah.
The great man says:
I’ve achieved many things in my life, but I’ve always said success means staying hungry and pushing the limits. I was honored to join the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, and now I’ll continue my WWE legacy with one of my biggest film roles immortalized in WWE 2K16. Match the Terminator against Stone Cold Steve Austin, Seth Rollins or Daniel Bryan, and there’s only one possible outcome: Hasta la vista, baby!
…because yes. While Schwarzenegger himself is a fine example of the human form, he’ll be appearing in WWE 2K16 in a more robotic form, as two different versions of the T-800 Terminator. Take your pick: The original from The Terminator, or the version featured in Terminator 2: Judgment Day!
Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K explains:
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a living legend with universal appeal, a perseverance for greatness and a strong relationship with WWE, including his recent Hall of Fame induction, all of which make him an incredible fit for WWE 2K16. He’s a force to be reckoned with and defines what it means to raise some hell. Through his WWE 2K16 pre-order inclusion, fans simply can’t beat the opportunity to play as the Terminator in a WWE ring.
If you want to get in on the action, you’ll need to pre-order a copy of the game from selected retailers (check with your local game seller) – Schwarzenegger will be available on all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One) when the game launches from October 27.
