WWE 2K14 preorders get Ultimate Warrior

Playable character will be exclusive to those who preorder the fighting game for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.

by

2K today announced that Ultimate Warrior will be a preorder bonus for WWE 2K14. The playable character will be exclusive to those who reserve a copy of the fighting game for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 from participating retailers.

"It was my good fortune to be his creator and performer, and I am humbled by all those fans who've not only kept his legacy alive, but deepened it over time," Warrior said in a statement.

Ultimate Warrior made his WWE debut in 1987 and is known for his ring entrance and personality, among other traits.

"Fans love him, opponents fear him, and everyone can agree that he's one of the most iconic Legends in WWE history," said 2K senior director of marketing Chris Snyder in a statement.

WWE 2K14 launches October 29 in North America and November 1 internationally.

2K parent company Take-Two Interactive acquired the World Wrestling Entertainment license for video games earlier this year following THQ's bankruptcy. The multiyear licensing agreement will see WWE games continue to be developed by Yuke's.

This game looks like it was made for the N64

He's awesome. But you know what would made this game even more awesome, besides graphics? Destrucity vs Hoak Hogan vs Randy Oh yeaaaah. That would've been epic

Wow, UW was the man! I remember an old fight between him and Hulk Hogan around 1991.

In the add, he is wearing the jacket he wore during his stint in the WCW in the late 1990's.

When did Vince and Warrior start getting along?  Wouldn't Vince have to pass off on him being in the game?

Hulk Hogan vs Ultimate Warrior at Wrestlemania 6 was the first wrestling match i ever saw. I was like 5 years old and I loved it.

Ultimate Warrior is NOT part of WWE history.

Back in '87, the WWE didn't even exist.

As we know it today the WWE was formed by a merging of the two biggest (and the only 2 relevant) Wrestleing entertainemnt groups; The WWF (World Wrestling Federation) and the WCW (Wordlwide Champsionship Wrestling)

Of which, The Ultimate Warrior was LOOOOOOONG gone by then.

...I just realised I know this much and am commenting on a wrestling article.

I am ashamed of myself for knowing so much about this piss-poor excuse for a sport.

That was the time where i was watching Wrestling.
Hogan,The Snake,Rick Martell(before The Model),Mr.Perfect.

If i still were interested in Wrestling,the Ultimate Warrior chara would be a reason to preorder the game.
Havent played a Wrestling game since...let me think...ah,Super Wrestlemania on Snes.

Honestly, what happened to unlocking characters by just .. playing the damned game?  These kinds of pre-order bonuses actually deter me from even purchasing the games at all.

 I really had the hope that 2K would give us a better game, I'd like to think that the reason this looks like crap it's because the got the development pretty advance and couldn't make much more, very dissapointed though :(

What happen to great gameplay and a deep create-a-player mode being the selling points for wrestling games?  I remember when wrestling games were must haves back on Nintendo 64, and maybe the first Day of Reckoning on Gamecube.  Oh well.

@smashthejews it look like you don't know nothing about graphics because this doent look anything like a N64 game.

@ryadings I remember. Back then, I had a BRAVO german magazine (very popular long ago) with a great article of the fight. I cut all the pages and covered my school books with them :D

@ryadings I still remember watching it SCRAMBLED on tv with a buddy.  We couldn't really see it, but we could hear the commentary.   Hogan leg drop, pin count  1, 2, 3...  Hogan won again. Ah crap.  Wait.... what? what's that? the Ultimate Warrior's music is playing?  Holy ****! WARRIOR WON! HELL YEAH!!! :D

@VenkmanPHD You should be ashamed for claiming to know so much about sports entertainment.  The Warrior is part of the WWE history.  That is like saying Sid Vicious and Papa Shango aren't.  And it isn't a sport btw.  I grew up loving this stuff.  Now, not so much.  And like others have said, they got sued by the World Wildlife Fund, so they changed the name.

@VenkmanPHD The problem is that you're seeing it like a sports when it isn't. It's just a great, fun show. Well, it used to be. Today's wrestling sucks.

@VenkmanPHD wow, you have no idea of what you're talking about. WWE amd WWF are the same company you moron! They had to change the name because they were going to get sued.

Do your research before you write this stupid nonsense.

@VenkmanPHD  Its not a sport, its a form of entertainment. Some people like it, some don't.

@VenkmanPHD No.

The WWF purchased WCW in 2001. It remained being called WWF until a little over a year later when it was told to change its name by a court of law after it lost the case against World Wildlife Fund.

Just because the name changed does not mean the company changed. Wrestlers from the 80's are part of the WWE's past

@VenkmanPHD They changed the name from the WWF to the WWE because the World Wildlife Fund was going to sue them if they didn't.

@JustPlainLucas 
I don't know I have to admit I had no interest in this game UNTIL they mentioned that the Ultimate Warrior would been in the game as a pre-order bonus. I've been wanting to play with the Ultimate Warrior since this series's inception. I also admit that if The Warrior was just an unlockable character and not a pre-order bonus I'd probably would have just waited and bought this game used later but now I'm considering pre-ordering it So I'm sure they knew  what they were doing when they made him a pre-order bonus.

@The_Gaming_Baby its not a sport its entertainment, and I enjoy it for what it is. Athletes performing dangerous stunts for our entertainment, sorta like jackie chan.

@Marky360 @JustPlainLucas I just wish they could at the very least strike a balance though, nowadays their outright selling extras instead of giving gamers the pleasure of working to unlock them, its a disgusting way of milking the customer.

@koospetoors @Marky360 @JustPlainLucas Couldn't agree more. The worst is when they have DLC for different costumes and the such. No I won't pay a "small" amount extra for something so trivial after paying £50 for a game.

And what about the games like first person shooters that give you extra weapons... just because I don't preorder (or even in some cases complete a demo of a completely different game) I can't get something designed for the game I'm buying?  Something got messed up along the way here.
