According to a newly released promotional spot for “WWE 2K14,” James Brian Hellwig, also known as The Ultimate Warrior, will make an appearance in the upcoming World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. (NYSE:WWE), or WWE, video game. However there’s a catch—gamers looking to play as the Ultimate Warrior can only obtain him as a pre-order bonus for “WWE 2K14.”
In the promotional spot, the Ultimate Warrior is seen walking through the 2K headquarters talking about the game, and scaring, slapping and throwing employees across the 2K offices.
The Ultimate Warrior retired from wrestling back in 2008, after wrestling for the World Class Wrestling Federation (WCW), the World Wresting Federation (WWF which would later change to WWE), and Nu-Wrestling Evolution (NWE). His appearance in the game marks his first appearance in a WWE game and his reappearance on the wrestling scene.
“WWE 2K14” marks 2k Games’ first game release featuring the WWE video game franchise. 2k Games is a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO).
WWE 2K14 is expected to be available in stores October 29, 2013.
