He’s back!

2K revealed this morning the pre-order bonus for WWE 2K16… and It was not what I was expecting at all. In previous years they would usually have legends such as Ultimate Warrior, Sting, The Rock and even Mike Tyson, but I want to say that this is first time that a fictional character has ever made an appearance in a WWE game. 

By pre-ordering the game, you can play as The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger! Arnold will be playable in two forms including both Terminator 1 and Terminator 2 versions of the T-800. Hey, that means that we get both Heel and Face versions of the Terminator! Put him against The Miz and you get Terminator vs. Kyle Reese, the Wrestle Mania match everyone has wanted for years.

Personally, I think this is amazing. I am a huge Arnold fan and a huge Terminator fan and I am glad to see 2K branching out in terms of their pre-order bonuses to give us something new. On a side note, I feel like this also just opened up pandora’s box in terms of characters they could add to these games. Most people make use of the creation suite to add fictional characters to the game and it would be awesome for 2K to start adding some of these characters to the games themselves. Just as long as they don’t go overboard and WWE Superstars get left out because of it. 

WWE 2K16 launches on October 27th in North America and October 30th internationally. The game will be available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4. No word on a PC version just yet but I assume they will release it around Wrestle Mania time like they did with WWE 2K15.
