Seth Freakin’ Rollins Revealed as WWE 2K18 Cover Superstar

WWE announced today via their website that The Kingslayer Seth Rollins will be the cover superstar for WWE 2K18. They also announced the release date and special editions which we’ll delve in to below.

Each year, the announcement takes on a unique form, often revealed on Monday Night RAW in a big announcement. Rollins now joins an exclusive club which in recent years has featured household names like John Cena and Brock Lesnar.

This year WWE has created an epic announcement trailer showing a masked man breaking in to a WWE storage facility, destroying relics of the past including The Undertaker’s clothes he left behind at Wrestlemania 33, Stone Cold Steve Austin’s ATV, and we even get to see the King of Kings Triple H’s mail-armour helmet melt away.

The masked man of course reveals himself at the end of the trailer, however there are no surprises as to who it is.

You can watch the official WWE 2k18 reveal trailer below:


The official descriptions of the three announced editions of WWE 2K18 are detailed below:

  • The WWE 2K18 Standard Edition, which includes a physical or digital copy of WWE 2K18 as well as a pre-order bonus.
  • The WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition, which includes all the Standard Edition benefits plus access to the WWE 2K18 Season Pass, bonus digital content and early access to the game four days prior to release.
  • The WWE 2K18 Collector’s Edition, which includes all the Deluxe Edition benefits except the option of a digital download. However, players who pick up the Collector’s Edition will receive exclusive physical WWE collectibles.

2K Games has promised more information about the bonus content will be announced later this quarter, as well as the game’s roster (playable characters).

WWE 2K18 is scheduled to launch on October 17, 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, however you can play it four days early if you pre-order the Deluxe or Collectors edition.
