2K has announced that WWE 2K16 will get 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Arnold Schwarzenegger as a playable character.
Schwarzenegger is set to appear as two variations of the T-800 that appeared in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The two characters will be available to anyone who pre-orders WWE 2K16 ahead of its October release date.
“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,” added 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.”
As of the moment, there are no in-game shots of the Terminator in action, 2K has released a live action trailer (seen above) featuring Schwarzenegger alongside WWE stars Daniel Bryan, Eva Marie, Paige, and Dean Ambrose that pays homage to the Terminator films.
WWE 2K16 releases on October 27 in North America and October 30 internationally for the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
