A long-standing internet rumour is that the world famous wrestler, the Ultimate Warrior, is dead. And that a number of lookalikes have taken on the role following his ‘death’, only to quietly disappear… This is completely untrue, as he actually has lived a quiet life since he retired. Or, has he? If you hadn’t already seen it, check out this trailer for 2K’s first WWE game since the THQ collapse:
As you can see, he’s clearly kept himself in pretty swell health since his retirement – we’d love to see a comeback! With WWE 2K14 giving a big focus on the nostalgia of previous Wrestlemania events and legendary wrestlers, it’s well suited to choose this epic wrestling superstar to be a face of the marketing campaign. We can see WWE 2K15 now… The retro Ultimate Warrior, along with the new but aged buzzcut Ultimate Warrior (who has actually changed his birth name to ‘Warrior’ by deed poll – crazy!).
We’ve also got some footage from the recent PAX 2013, of the exclusive interview with 2K Sports and the amazing Ultimate Warrior, straight from his official Youtube account. The interview includes information on the development of the Ultimate Warrior character, his time as a wrestler and his love for his fans.
If you weren’t already aware, the Ultimate Warrior is only available as a playable character with the pre-order DLC for WWE 2K14! Undertaker fans can also grab the special ‘Phenom Edition’, which contains Undertaker goodies including the ‘American Badass’ playable character, as shown in the screenshot below. You can also discover the whole roster of playable wrestling superstars in our ultimate WWE 2k14 roster article.
You don’t have long left to get a pre-order down though, as the game is due for release on the 29th October in North America and 1st November in Europe and India. Be quick about it!
