WWE 2K18 Features Kurt Angle As Pre-Order Bonus

The pre-order bonus character for WWE 2K18 has been revealed. Hall of Famer and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle will appear in a WWE game for the first time in over a decade.

During a press conference, Angle revealed there will be two different versions of his character: the “American Hero,” which will chronicle his earlier career, and one modeled after his “Wrestling Machine” days during the revamp of ECW.

Angle opened by saying that cover star of 2K18–Seth Rollins–is “an incredible young talent. He embodies everything it means to be like no one.” Angle jokingly said that he has revenge in mind after what Rollins did in the trailer for the new game–smashing historical wrestling relics at WWE headquarters.

While the Raw GM admitted he’s not much of a gamer, he said that if he could change up his finisher in the game it would be to Stone Cold’s Stunner: “I’m a big Stone Cold Fan,” explained Angle. “Hearing the electricity of the fans when he hit that, gave me the chills. I’d love to be able to hit it on someone else and get that reaction.” In addition, he explained that he loved Randy Orton’s RKO, mainly because it can come out of nowhere, a phrase heard quite a bit on television.

Angle discussed the many wrestlers he’d like to have a match with when he eventually comes back to the ring, but he seemed the most impressed with the women’s revolution and NXT superstar Asuka: “I really like Asuka. I know she’s going to make a huge impact when she comes up. [Women are] just as highly demanded as the guys are now. They’re becoming stars before they even get on TV, Raw, and Smackdown.”

If WWE’s 2K series continues to follow suit, it will have an expansive roster, with the last game having over 175 playable characters, when you include DLC. At this point in time, the only confirmed characters in the game are Seth Rollins and the two versions of Kurt Angle–which are available by pre-order.

WWE 2K18 launches on October 17 for PS4 and Xbox One. There will be numerous editions of the game, and a few details about what each version contains has been revealed, including early access to the game.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
