It is official! ‘WWE 2K18’ is confirmed for release later this year, as Seth Rollins announced yesterday via the Sportscenter show on ESPN yesterday. Now more details are emerging on the game and we have all the info here for you.

Following the reveal of ‘WWE 2K18’ yesterday, more details have emerged in regards to when you can purchase the game and the version differences.

It has been announced that the game will be internationally released on October 17 but in purchasing either the ‘Deluxe’ or ‘Collector’s’ editions you have the ability to purchase the game four days early.

In addition, it is unknown if 2K will have a Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version available. Wrestling Rumors will update you on this news as it becomes available.

In the graphic above, released by 2K, each edition and the options available are shown.

Standard Version

It appears based on the graphic above that the standard edition of the game will likely only contain the pre-order bonus. Going off past years, the bonus would likely be Kurt Angle as an exclusive DLC character. In addition, you cannot play the game before October 17th like the other versions.

Deluxe Version

Aside from an alternate cover and the pre-order bonus, the Deluxe addition will also include the season pass which will give access to the Accelerator and all DLC move and superstar packs. It also comes with bonus digital content. It is unknown exactly what this is at the present time, but Wrestling Rumors will update you as this information becomes available. This is the cheapest edition to allow you to play the game up to four days early.

Collector’s Edition

This is the most advanced and expensive version of the new game. It contains everything listed above, including the ability to play four days early. The cover based on the graphic image on 2K’s website appears to simply be the ‘WWE 2K18’ logo, though a variation may be revealed later this year. The edition also adds bonus physical merchandise. This is also listed as something to be revealed later this year.

It should be noted that ‘EB Games Australia’ have announced that the pre-order for ‘WWE 2K18’ for Australian players will be the new Seth Rollins ‘Building The Architect’ DVD that was recently released. Whether this translates to other areas of the world is unknown.

Here is the announcement from 2K:

BE LIKE NO ONE: 2K Announces Seth Rollins™ as the WWE® 2K18 Cover Superstar

New Early Access initiative invites players to purchase the WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition or WWE 2K18 Collector’s Edition and receive the game before its worldwide release date

New York, NY – June 19, 2017 – Be like no one.

These four simple words likely generate several reactions, but for WWE Superstar Seth Rollins™, they are a master class in describing his unmatched work ethic, disruptive mindset and definitive WWE career.

Since joining WWE in 2010, Rollins has done things on his own terms. Like many claim but never accomplish, he was destined to be different, blaze his own trail and take no prisoners along the way, even if it meant disrespecting history. The first move on Rollins’ chess board: become the inaugural NXT® Champion in 2012 and put everyone on high alert. The second move: make his WWE main roster debut at Survivor Series® later that year, align with WWE Superstars Roman Reigns™ and Dean Ambrose™ to form The Shield™ and rally against authority. As the pieces continued moving, the accolades followed: two-time WWE Champion, United States Champion, WWE Tag Team Champion and “Mr. Money in the Bank®,” to name a few. And now, “The Kingslayer” stands tall after a definitive checkmate: defeating Triple H® on WWE’s grandest stage at WrestleMania® 33.

For every calculated action and result, there is no question Rollins will prevail by any means necessary, and in doing so, embody everything it means to be like no one.

In celebration of his in-ring accomplishments and bold individuality, 2K today announced Seth Rollins as the cover Superstar for WWE® 2K18, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. In addition, Rollins will personify WWE 2K18’s worldwide marketing campaign – BE LIKE NO ONE – which invites players to explore Rollins’ identity, as well as those of several other WWE Superstars, while learning more about the game. WWE 2K18 is currently scheduled for worldwide release on October 17, 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One.

“As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly BE LIKE NO ONE – a calling card perfect for everything I stand for – as it sets forth on its own unique path,” said Seth Rollins. “Following in the footsteps of other WWE 2K cover Superstars – Dwayne “The Rock®” Johnson, John Cena®, Stone Cold Steve Austin® and Brock Lesnar® – I now carry the torch and proudly represent a new generation of WWE Superstars. I am the future, and the future can’t be stopped.”

“Each year, the WWE 2K franchise emerges with a unique identity, impeccable authenticity, an incredible roster and the freedom for players to customize and control the virtual WWE world through its extensive offerings,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “In determining who truly epitomizes BE LIKE NO ONE and represents WWE 2K18 to the fullest extent, there was one obvious answer: Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins.”

In addition, today 2K announced details surrounding WWE 2K18 premium product offerings and their scheduled release dates:

Seth Rollins named WWE 2K18 cover Superstar

Editor’s Note:
I seriously cannot wait to play this game. It looks great. I recently made the article about why I think GM Mode should return to the game and if it won’t be, another way 2K can work around it. Hopefully this game is the one to bring that back.
