WWE just confirmed this morning that The Ultimate Warrior will be in the 2K14 video game. Warrior will be free to fans who pre-order the game.
“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.”
Here’s the official video making the announcement:
