Sting to lace up his boots in the virtual squared circle with two iterations in the new game

downloadTonight during Monday Night Raw, the news was made official as a teaser trailer announced that wrestling legend Sting will be a part of the WWE 2K15 video game as a downloadable character when gamers pre-order the newest installment in the long-running series. The trailer mentions that Sting will appear in the form of two generations, presumably 80s surfer Sting and the crow Sting from his later WCW days.

In the past, pre-order bonus characters usually became available for everyone for $0.99 after the other DLC packs came out, but with 2K at the helm now, it’s hard to say how similar their business model for the WWE games will be to that of the now defunct THQ.

In other words, there’s no guarantee that Sting will be available any other way, so be sure to get that pre-order in if you want to hit the Stinger Splash and the lock in the Scorpion Deathlock on your foes come this fall.

WWE 2K15 will debut on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 Oct. 28 in the U.S.

In the meantime, check out this awesome teaser video for the man in black, complete with an orchestra of Sting look-a-likes.
