I’m sad to admit that I’m not as big of a wrestling fan as I used to be, because I completely didn’t know that Actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame. Which opens him up to the possibility of showing up in 2K’s upcoming WWE 2K16.
That is exactly what is happening with the 2K’s recent announcement, as fans who pre-order WWE 2K16 will be able to play as Arnold Schwarzenegger in his most famous role, The Terminator. There will be two models of The Terminator for the game, one based off the original film and another based on its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
When asked about the promotion, Schwarzenegger said “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!”
The announcement was dropped with a nice throwback trailer to a famous scene in Terminator 2, replacing the extras with some of the WWE roster (which you can watch above.)
“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.
