WWE 2K17 gets a release date, and a new cover star

To all the WWE fans out there, you won’t have to wait too long to play the next game in the WWE franchise. WWE 2K17 is set to release on October 11, and the cover star will be none other than the beast himself, Brock Lesnar.

The announcement means Lesnar is now part of a list of Superstars who have appeared on the cover of the WWE games, including the likes of John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock. Lesnar will also become the first Superstar to appear on a WWE video game cover alone.

“My career has been defined by dominating every opportunity presented to me. I am excited for my newest opportunity representing WWE 2K17 as the franchise’s ambassador and honored to serve as the WWE 2K17 cover Superstar.”

Brock Lesnar is widely known for his professional wrestling career, as one of the stars of WWE, as well as UFC. The wrestler looks to be unleashing Suplex City across all platforms, as announced by his advocate, Paul Heyman.

“Ladies and gentlemen, my client has truly conquered everything in his path, and unleashing Suplex City through WWE 2K17 will be no different. As the advocate for Brock Lesnar, I can assure you his embodiment of unadulterated excellence, combined with a Beast’s desire to CONQUER all platforms in the gaming world, will make for a video game and supporting campaign that fans will embrace and absolutely cannot ignore this year.”

As mentioned before, WWE 2K17 will be available across ‘all platforms’, namely the PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360. You can preorder the game on Amazon, and receive the wrestler Goldberg, as a special preorder bonus.
