Yesterday, 2K Sports announced a contest
to allow gamers to try their hand at creating an inside sleeve design for the packaging of upcoming wrestling sim, WWE 2K14
Today, the publisher has revealed that wrestling superstar The Rock, affectionately known as "The People's Champion", will adorn the cover of the latest iteration, that has undergone a re-branding
as a result of THQ's recent financial troubles.
The Rock made the following statement about his partnership with the 2K brand:
I am exceptionally grateful to be chosen for the cover of WWE 2K14 and serve as the first cover Superstar under 2K’s leadership... I want the cover of WWE 2K14 to electrify the people. I want the artwork to stand out and set a new standard for all WWE video games from 2K, both today and in the future
In addition to the cover art, 2K has also released a teaser trailer to showcase the opportunity to "become immortal" in the game's career mode whilst illustrating the intense rivalries between The Rock, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and others.
will slam you into the canvas upon release on October 29th in North America and on November 1st in Europe.
