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.
â€œIâ€™ve achieved many things in my life, but Iâ€™ve always said success means staying hungry and pushing the limits,â€ said Schwarzenegger. â€œI was honoured to join the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, and now Iâ€™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 thereâ€™s only one possible outcome: Hasta la vista, baby!â€
â€œArnold 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,â€ said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. â€œHeâ€™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 canâ€™t beat the opportunity to play as the Terminator in a WWE ring.â€
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.
