It seems though the Kingslayer himself Seth Rollins will grace the WWE 2K18 cover for the newest addition to the WWE 2K Franchise.
Yesterday, Seth Rollins announced, on SportsCenter, that he will be the next Superstar featured on the cover. Rollins, a two-time world champion and 2014 Money in the Bank winner, will join the likes of Brock Lesnar, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the cover athlete. Rollins is an avid gamer himself who appears quite often appears on Xavier Wood’s YouTube Channel UpUpDownDown. Seth Rollins also spoke exclusively to SunSport about how honored he is to be the next cover athlete. He said, “It’s sweet. I’ve been gaming pretty much all my life. My folks bought me a Nintendo as a kid. I’ve been playing ever since. To be on the cover is pretty wild. It’s not something I ever thought I’d, it’s pretty fantastic, it’s pretty surreal. I played 2K games before they were associated with WWE. They take a great deal of pride in their work, they put out some of the best sporting games ever made. They are highly-rated and they’ve done a fantastic job with our franchise over the years. I’m excited what they bring to the table this year.”
As for WWE 2k18, some new details have surfaced in addition to a new trailer that was released. Other than announcing Seth Rollins as the next Cover Athlete, the trailer and game has the tag line of “Be Like No One.” While we don’t quite know what tag line means or how it is integrated to the game itself, it was revealed you could played the game on October 17, 2017 or 4 days early if you purchase the Deluxe Edition. There does seem to be multiple special editions but we do not know yet the bonuses for these special editions other than the early access with the Deluxe Edition. Seth Rollins is currently in a feud with Bray Wyatt and with him being this year’s cover star, this is could be an indicator for big things to come for him in the near future.
