Play as the Terminator in WWE 2k16

In yet another strange marketing move in order to advertise the film Terminator Genesis; the first being the hilarious and yet awful Triple H entrance into Wrestlemania 31 (seriously, Google this!) WWE have teamed up with Paramount Pictures and included a special Pre-Order bonus for WWE 2k16 featuring two versions of the legendary Terminator when you Pre-Order from selected retailers.

The announcement trailer features an almost perfect replication from the bar scene at the beginning of Terminator 2, only this time it is littered with cameos from WWE Superstars and Diva's such as "The Yes Man" Daniel Bryan, Eva Marie, Paige, "The Demon" Finn Balor and Dean Ambrose who good old Arnie asks for his clothes, his boots and his motorcycle in a good nostalgic throwback to the film. 

The two Terminator models, one from the original 1984 film Terminator, and the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day will be playable as Arnold Schwarzenegger, though it's not clear yet as no in-game models have been shown as to whether they will look like Arnold many years ago in the films, or whether it will use a current scan of how he looks now, nor is it clear what kind of moveset, entrance of even finishing move he will use.

I can only hope that as you beat down the Terminator it slowly starts to erode away the skin of the metal monster, each bit of battle damage revealing more of the metallic frame inside to the point where you just have a fully visible Terminator busting out 450 splashes and Sentons, because I know I am going give him Neville's moveset, along with Fandango's enterance and Sasha Bank's music.

The game launches on October 27th in the US and October 30th elsewhere in the world. Personally, I don't really pre-order games for their bonuses, I pre-order because then I don't have to worry about running to the shops and finding them out of stock, but you can bet that this dumb marketing act will have me on Amazon soon to place my Pre-Order.
