2K announces Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator as a playable character for WWE 2K16

Set for release in the fall, WWE 2K16 looks like it will be featuring at least one cameo appearance in the form of a playable character. Much the same as the playable Predator and Jason Voorhees characters in Mortal Kombat X, 2K has tapped the Termintor himself.

Terminator, as portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, will appear in two different variations in the game: one from the original movie and one from the sequel Judgement Day. While we are yet to see Terminator in the actual game engine, the live action trailer below should hold you over in the mean time:

WWE 2K16 is scheduled for release on October 27th, 2015 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Only thing is, you’ll need to pre-order the game to get your hands on the playable Terminator character. Well, at least until (if) they decide to put him up for sale at a later point.

Sony digital game sale: Tomb Raider DE $15, Rayman Legends $20, Batman Arkham titles from $8 ea, more

Update (6/16 4:57pm): If you spend more than $100 using your PSN Wallet on PSN from now through June 23rd, you will get $15 in free credit on your account.

Following Xbox and Nintendo, Sony has kicked off its own digital sale in celebration of E3 2015. There is a wide selection of PS4, PS3, Vita and cross-buy PSN titles available.

One standout from the lot is the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for $15 (Reg. $30). This game very rarely dips below $20 for the physical version and is 50% off its usual PSN listing. Another option is Rayman Legends on PS4 (or PS3) for $20, which rarely goes for less then $25 in physical form. You’ll also find the entire Batman Arkham series starting at $8 each, all less than the current price of the physical version.

Unless you prefer the digital copy, it always a good idea to check our daily Game/Apps roundup before purchasing as you may find some titles for less. Dragon Age Inquisition is $30 Prime shipped today on Amazon, $5 less than in the PSN sale, but rarely dips below $40 otherwise.
