Arnie to Star in WWE 2K16
Wrestling isn’t usually a domain that STARBURST strays into all that often, but this one is just a little bit too weird to let fly. Apparently, Arnold Schwarzenegger is going to be made available as a playable character in the latest WWE game (when you preorder). Better yet, he will actually be turning up as the Terminator, rather than himself - as witnessed in the rather cool TV spot currently running.
Arnie has quite the history with WWE, so much so that he has even been inducted into their Hall of Fame. Even so, this still seems like a little bit of an odd move, but there are probably plenty of people who are going to relish the chance of playing as him and taking out a few of the current crop of WWE stars.
Plus, the game could use the celebrity firepower after the scandal that Hulk Hogan found himself embroiled in last month. It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like the rhythm genre is trying to come back with a bang after oversaturation damn near killed the market a few years back. Both Harmonix and Activision are bringing their flagship music games back, with Rock Band 4 getting out there first. Does anybody still want to play along to music using plastic instruments? Only time will tell, but we don’t anticipate the return of the boom period that seemed to lead to a new music game coming out every ten minutes a few years back.
