Today 2K had an announcement that Science Fiction fans may be thrilled to hear. With the debut of the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame, 2K revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger, a longtime WWE fan and WWE Hall of Famer, will be joining the upcoming title as two different characters.
Gamers who pre-order the title will be able to play as the Iconic T-800 from Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. These characters are sure to wreak havoc in the ring.
Schwarzenegger stated, “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!”
A bit of background on the iconic Schwarzenegger:
From early childhood in his native Austria to today, Schwarzenegger represents the ultimate renaissance man, taking risks and defying odds through career accomplishments in bodybuilding, acting, politics and more. He won his first of four Mr. Universe titles at the age of 20, earned seven Mr. Olympia titles and since 1989 has hosted worldwide fitness expositions through the Arnold Sports Festival. Schwarzenegger is a fixture in numerous blockbuster action films, including Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, Predator, Total Recall, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Expendables franchise and his most recent release, Terminator Genisys, as well as for his roles in pop-culture favorites Kindergarten Cop and Twins. In addition, Schwarzenegger transcended from Hollywood to the state capitol, serving two consecutive terms as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2010.
Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K, proclaimed, “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.”
