Ultimate Warrior Returns In WWE 2K14
The self-professed “Founding Father of Life Intensity”, Ultimate Warrior will be playable exclusively to those who preorder WWE 2K14.
WWE and 2K Sports have announced that WWE Legend Ultimate Warrior will be playable exclusively to those who preorder WWE 2K14 for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
In a teaser video released by 2K Sports, you can witness Ultimate Warrior visit 2K’s offices and trash the place, throwing around employees and smacking a guy full-force in the head with the game case. He also makes a sly reference to the long-running rumor that he’s been dead since 1991. Is this where the “Become Immortal” tagline comes from?
“Immortality is inspiration, pure and simple. An example to others that they, too, can do things larger than the life they are actually living, and Ultimate Warrior was the pure embodiment of this belief, in what has proven to be a very attention-getting and inspiring way,” said Warrior. “It was my good fortune to be his creator and performer, and I am humbled by all those fans who’ve not only kept his legacy alive, but deepened it over time. In WWE 2K14, Ultimate Warrior’s creed, ‘Always Believe,’ lives on.”
Ultimate Warrior made his WWE debut in 1987, and went on to have incredible fueds with Sergeant Slaughter, Ravishing Rick Rude, The Honky Tonk Man, Macho Man, and Hulk Hogan. At WrestleMania VI on April 1, 1990, Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan and became the first WWE wrestler to hold the Intercontinental Championship and WWE Championship at the same time.
“There has never been another WWE Superstar quite like the Ultimate Warrior – his intensity and energy is unmatched, and his legacy is undeniable,” said Chris Snyder, Senior Director of Marketing at 2K. “Fans love him, opponents fear him and everyone can agree that he’s one of the most iconic Legends in WWE history. Pre-ordering WWE 2K14 is the only way we mere mortals will ever have a glimpse into the greatness that is Ultimate Warrior.”
