The hype train for WWE 2K18 has officially left the station, and it was revealed earlier today that former WWE Champion Seth Rollins will be the star on the cover of this year’s game.
Seth Rollins now joins an elite group of wrestlers who have been featured on the cover of the 2K series, and the Kingslayer says that he’s proud to carry the torch.
“As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly BE LIKE NO ONE – a calling card perfect for everything I stand for – as it sets forth on its own unique path,” said Seth Rollins. “Following in the footsteps of other WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne “The Rock®” Johnson, John Cena®, Stone Cold Steve Austin® and Brock Lesnar® – I now carry the torch and proudly represent a new generation of WWE Superstars. I am the future, and the future can’t be stopped.”
The tagline for the game is “BE LIKE NO ONE” and it’s set to be released on October 17, 2017. It’s been confirmed that the game will be released for PS4 and Xbox One, but so far there have been no details released about a possible Nintendo Switch version.
In addition to the standard game, WWE 2K18 will be available in the Deluxe Edition and there will also be a Collector’s Edition. It’s also been announced that players who purchase the Deluxe Edition and/or Collector’s Edition in both digital and physical format will receive early access and be able to play the game four days ahead of the scheduled release date. Additional details on the Collector’s Edition will be released later this summer. The WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition includes the following items:
* Copy of WWE 2K18 video game with Deluxe Edition packaging;
* Access to Season Pass content (details announced this fall);
* Access to WWE 2K18 pre-order bonus digital content (details announced this summer);
