The WWE has never been shy about bringing Hollywood to their shows, or their storylines. In fact, they are kind of famous for it in a way, but their latest reveal (courtesy of their official website) may just be their biggest and strangest one yet. Why is that? Because the Terminator is coming to WWE 2K16. No, not Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Terminator! You’ll be able to play as the T-800 from both the original Terminator film and from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
“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 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!”
“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 releases Oct. 27th, 2015. You can check out a new trailer promoting the Terminator as a pre-order bonus character in the player below. It is a recreation of a famous scene from the second movie, but with WWE Superstars interacting with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, including Daniel Bryan, Paige, Finn Balor and Dean Ambrose.
