2K has announced that Kurt Angle will be playable in WWE 2K18 for players who pre-order the game.
Pre-ordering the game at participating retailers will unlock two versions of the WWE Hall of Famer and Raw General Manager: his WWE “American Hero” persona and his ECW “Wrestling Machine” persona.
“I was thrilled to return to WWE earlier this year, be honored as a WWE Hall of Fame inductee and find a new home with the best in the business every Monday night as the Raw General Manager,” Kurt Angle said. “And now, I get to follow in the footsteps of many incredible names, like Bill Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and be featured as the WWE 2K18 pre-order character.”
“Kurt Angle has been the most fan-requested Superstar in the WWE 2K franchise for some time now, so it’s a pleasure to celebrate his popularity and incredible career through this year’s WWE 2K18 pre-order offer,” added Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “His WWE and amateur wrestling achievements are also a perfect fit to help carry the torch for this year’s ‘Be Like No One’ worldwide marketing campaign. There’s no question Kurt succeeds on his own terms in everything he does.”
WWE 2K18 launches October 17th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
