[adsense250itp]2K Sports announced The Ultimate Warrior will be available as a playable wrestler in WWE 2K14 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for any player that pre-orders the game.
The virtual persona of the legendary and controversial wrestler last appeared in the 2011 game WWE All-Stars. Returning after a two year absence, the character will feature an extensive move-set, defining style, unique statistics and a fully rendered 3D model. All are being designed to closely match those of the real-life performer.
After originally performing in the WCW starting in 1986, The Ultimate Warrior quickly became a popular performer when he debuted in the WWE in 1987. His most famous moment came on April 1, 1990 when he defeated Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VI to unify the WWE Championship and Intercontinental Championship. He was the first WWE wrestler to hold both titles at the same time. Known for his highly energetic gimmick, memorable interviews and powerhouse ring style, his popularity still remains prevalent with wrestling fans.
“It was my good fortune to be his [The Ultimate Warrior’s] creator and performer and I am humbled by all those fans who’ve not only kept his legacy alive, but deepened it over time,” The Ultimate Warrior said. “In WWE 2K14, Ultimate Warrior’s creed, ‘Always Believe,’ lives on.”
WWE 2K14 is the first licensed WWE game to be published by 2K Games, a subsidiary company owned by Take Two Interactive. The license was purchased from the now defunct THQ. The game is still under development at Yuke’s. The company previously announced The Rock will appear on the cover of the game and a contest will determine an alternate cover created by a fan.
WWE 2K14 is set to launch Oct. 29 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
