2K Announces Kurt Angle as WWE 2K18 Pre-Order Bonus

2K has announced the decorated Olympian, WWE Hall of Famer and current Raw General Manager, Kurt Angle, will return to WWE in-ring action for the first time in more than a decade in WWE 2K18.

Fans can watch the official pre-order bonus trailer on Raw, airing live on USA Network at 8:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. CT on Monday, July 10. For more information on all pre-order options, check out this news post.

Best known for his remarkable in-ring accomplishments spanning nearly two decades, as well as his gold medal win in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, Angle will appear in WWE 2K18 through two playable characters representing key milestones in his career: his WWE “American Hero” persona, as well as his ECW® “Wrestling Machine” persona. The playable characters will be available as bonus content for those who pre-order the game at participating retailers.

“I was thrilled to return to WWE earlier this year, be honored as a WWE Hall of Fame inductee and find a new home with the best in the business every Monday night as the Raw General Manager,” said Kurt Angle. “And now, I get to follow in the footsteps of many incredible names, like Bill Goldberg, Sting, Ultimate Warrior and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and be featured as the WWE 2K18 pre-order character.”

“Kurt Angle has been the most fan-requested Superstar in the WWE 2K franchise for some time now, so it’s a pleasure to celebrate his popularity and incredible career through this year’s WWE 2K18 pre-order offer,” said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. “His WWE and amateur wrestling achievements are also a perfect fit to help carry the torch for this year’s ‘Be Like No One’ worldwide marketing campaign. There’s no question Kurt succeeds on his own terms in everything he does.”

I mean, he's that dude in the ring. I never preorder, but ****, tough to pass up some free Angle.

Eh, not enough to pre-order for me. I need to see big improvement to get Day 1. That or the collectors edition blows me away.

Re: 2K Announces Kurt Angle as WWE 2K18 Pre-Order Bonus

Has the preorder bonus fighter come back the last few years or am I just thinking this cause Goldberg was last year?

I'm not sure about this game anymore. The first 2 years I went deluxe. The past year I went regular with a preorder and bought NO dlc. I might skip this year or get it on Black Friday for $30. It was a roster update (and an outdated one at that) with a few more player scans and a few more gameplay tweaks.

I hope there's a Kurt Angle showcase with a 2000 Triple H if for no other reason than getting this in the game....

Triple H's best theme and his best run imo. That era of HHH is not explored enough in these games. That Angle/Hunter/Stephanie feud was gold too.

I believe the last few years the pre-order bonus character eventually became available as DLC. Months down the line. Definitely for Warrior, Biker Undertaker, Sting, and Goldberg. Don't remember if Terminator ever did.

He did. There hasn't been any pre order offers that weren't available eventually for everyone.
