First trailer for WWE 2K18 reveals this years cover star

More On: WWE 2K18

The cover athlete for WWE 2K18 has been revealed and it's Seth Rollins himself.

In a brand new trailer, we see Seth Rollins infiltrate the WWE archives and completely desecrate and destroy memorabilia from the Legends of WWE's past. The video ends with Rollins burning the entire building to the ground. Although I find it hilarious that of all the stuff he destroyed, HHH's chainmail helmet remained untouched. Can't be showing HHH in a vulnerable position now can we?

This most likely ties into this years tag line which is "Be Like No One" which implies that we are going to become our own legend instead of playing homage to past legends. Seth Rollins isn't going to be the next Stone Cold Steve Austin, he's going to be the first Seth Rollins. 

Also revealed is that this years game will have a "Deluxe Edition" which will get you early access to the game. Here is what you will get in the Deluxe Edition.

Deluxe Edition 

  • 4 day early access. Releases on October 13th 
  • Season pass (details to be revealed in the fall)
  • Additional collectors edition content (details to be revealed this summer) 

A collectors edition will also be available and will feature everything included in the Deluxe Edition but will also include an additional figurine, which has yet to be announced. 

WWE 2K18 launches on PS4 and Xbox One on October 17th. Sorry PS3 and Xbox 360 owners. Looks like its finally time to upgrade.
