Nothing to See Here, Just a Playable Arnold Schwarzenegger/T-800 in ‘WWE 2K16’

Pre-order bonuses? Nuts to them. This sort of bastardry is the scourge of the industry, and part of the reason why there were about twenty different editions of Watch Dogs to choose from. And who the hell wants twenty copies of Watch Dogs? Nobody, that's who.

Pre-order bonuses are the third greatest evil facing humanity today, just behind big business raping our planet and Bieber getting his skinny little ass out on boats for no reason at all. I'll let the occasional free related-to-the-game-in-question keyring or poster slide, but generally? Pre-order exclusives are the work of Satan.

I say generally, because I have to admit that this is freaking awesome right here. Look me in the eye and tell me you wouldn't want a playable Arnold Schwarzenegger (well, the T-800 technically) in WWE 2K16? You can't, because it'd be a filthy lie. Buckle up, gentlemen, because that dream is now a reality.

As crazy-ass as it may sound, there is some kind of reasoning behind this. The game's press release explains thusly:

 ‘Schwarzenegger, a longtime WWE fan and WWE Hall of Famer, will expand his relationship with WWE through WWE 2K16 with two playable characters – T-800 from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day films.'

It then adds, seemingly just to piss me off:

‘The playable characters will be available for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers.'

Sure, there's little doubt that this'll resurface for a price at a later date. But we'll know for sure ‘pon WWE 2K16‘s release on October 30. In the meantime, check out the ex-Governator in action:
