2K announced today that Seth Rollins would grace the cover of the latest entry in its flagship wrestling series, WWE 2K18. The announcement was accompanied by a (literally) explosive new trailer where Rollins practically destroys the legacies of those who came before him. "Be like no one" is the mantra, here, and he's made sure that no one will be remembered in his wake. Watch the trailer above.
"Since joining WWE in 2010, Rollins has done things on his own terms. Like many claim but never accomplish, he was destined to be different, blaze his own trail and take no prisoners along the way, even if it meant disrespecting history. "
“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.”
“Each year, the WWE 2K franchise emerges with a unique identity, impeccable authenticity, an incredible roster and the freedom for players to customize and control the virtual WWE world through its extensive offerings,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “In determining who truly epitomizes BE LIKE NO ONE and represents WWE 2K18 to the fullest extent, there was one obvious answer: Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins.”
2K also revealed that players who pre-order the Deluxe Edition of WWE 2K18 will be granted early access to the game before it officially launches on October 13. The Deluxe Edition includes:
