The Terminator is back, but not where you expected.
In what has to be one of the more bizarre pre order bonuses ever, 2K announced that when you pre-order WWE 2K16 via participating retailers, you get to play as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic character. You’ll get to play as both original 1984 Terminator, as well as the 1991 T2 era Terminator.
No further details have be revealed for this pre-order offer as of yet. But check out the announcement video below.
WWE 2K16 will be released on October 27, on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
Man, I don’t know what to make of this. If this was an announcement for Mortal Kombat X I wouldn’t have thought twice about it, because that would make sense. The 2K WWE games have at least some sense of being grounded in reality, so I’m just not sure how The Terminator is going to fit in exactly. I wasn’t too impressed by WWE 2K15 and I definitely need to see some improvement in the series before I bite again. But boy, did they find a way to push me towards giving WWE 2K16 a shot, even if just for pure morbid curiosity.
