2K’s WWE 2K18 gets its cover superstar.
Seth Rollins – whose achievements include being the first NXT Champion, a two-time WWE Champion, United States Champion, WWE Tag Team Champion, and “Mr. Money in the Bank”, as well defeating Triple H at WrestleMania 33 last April – has been announced by 2K games as the cover star for WWE 2K18.
Seth Rollins, who is understandably thrilled to be gracing the cover of the game, said:
“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. 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.”
Chris Snyder, VP of marketing at 2K, tried to follow that with:
“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. 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.”
With that settled, 2K has also gone about detailing the Deluxe Edition of the game, which is now available to pre-order.
