2K revealed the debut of 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee and global action film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger in WWE 2K16. Best known for his acting, bodybuilding and political endeavours, Schwarzenegger, a longtime WWE fan and WWE Hall of Famer, will expand his relationship with WWE with two playable characters: T-800 from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day movies. The playable characters will be available for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers.
“I’ve achieved many things in my life, but I’ve always said success means staying hungry and pushing the limits,” said Schwarzenegger. “I was honoured 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!”
“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,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “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.”
WWE 2K16 is currently scheduled for release on PS3/PS4 and Xbox 360/Xbox One on October 27, 2015 in North America and October 30, 2015 internationally.
