Judgment Day is coming for WWE’s superstars.

2K announced today that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 Terminators (both the original from The Terminator and the hero from Terminator 2: Judgment Day) is a playable character in WWE 2K16, which comes out on October 27, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. However, you’ll need to preorder the game to unlock them.

This isn’t as random as it seems. Schwarzenegger has a history of making appearances for the company and is even a member of the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame. At this year’s WrestleMania, superstar HHH came down to the ring to a Terminator-themed entrance, which included video of Schwarzenegger.

We don’t know what the in-game models will look like, but 2K has released a fun, live-action promotional video.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
