Say it with me: “I’m Back”

Terminator and WWE fans, get ready. This fall, Arnold Schwarzenegger is invading WWE 2K16 as the one and only Terminator―available exclusively with online pre-orders! What’s more, disc pre-orders are available now for this summer’s blockbuster movie Terminator Genisys (including a Best Buy exclusive Steelbook) and for fans of the earlier films, there are two new Terminator 2: Judgment Day Blu-ray packs featuring stunning Mondo X SteelBooks!

This week, 2K and WWE made the surprise (and utterly awesome) announcement that action film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger will be appearing as two playable characters in the upcoming game WWE 2K16. Both DLC characters, which includes the T-800 from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day films, will be made available to those who pre-order the game online on BestBuy.ca.

WWE 2K16 will be releasing on both current-gen (PS4, Xbox One) and previous-gen (PS3, Xbox 360) game consoles, with the pre-order bonus appying to all versions. Imagine being able challenge all your favourite WWE Superstars―from Daniel Bryan, to Seth Rollins, to Wade Barrett―as the cybernetic soldier himself, the Terminator. Seems a little unfair, no? It’ll be fun to see if anyone on the WWE roster can withstand even a few minutes in the ring with the mighty Terminator!

It’s fun too thinking about the possibility of squaring off against Schwarzenegger, perhaps unleashing signature wrestling moves on him like Barrett’s bull hammer, or Rollin’s pedigree. While it’s almost unfathomable to think about, I wonder if you can put the Terminator in a submission hold and make him tap out? Now that’s something I’d like to see!

Release date: October 27, 2015

Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

Developer: Yuke’s, Visual Concepts

Publisher: 2K Sports

Genre: Sports, Wrestling

ESRB Rating: T (Teen)

The reveal trailer of Terminator in WWE 2K16, which aired on this week’s Monday Night Raw, was nothing short of awesome. In it, a seemingly naked Schwarzenegger walks into a country bar and scans several WWE Superstars and Divas including Daniel Bryan, Eva Marie, Paige, Finn Balor, and lastly, Dean Ambrose, whom he asks to hand over his “clothes, boots, and motorcycle.” Ambrose laughs and presses his cigar into the Terminator’s skin, only to realize something isn’t quite right when his accoster doesn’t flinch. Take a look at the full trailer below and see for yourself:

If you’re a fan of the older Terminator films, then you won’t want to miss out on the Best Buy exclusive SteelBooks editions of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Designed by the talented Mondo artist Tom Whalen, these SteelBooks will be a stunning addition to your Blu-ray collection.

There are two SteelBooks you can choose from, including the slick black and green SKYNET 1997 edition which features a foil microchip sticker and an 8-page art booklet, and a red version variant. The SKYNET 1997 is an extremely rare edition, with a limited run of only 1997 units.

Below are the links to both SteelBooks:

With the Terminator 2 SteelBooks available now, and more Terminator content releasing soon (in the form of WWE 2K16 and Terminator Genisys), there are plenty of reasons to be excited.
