A new WWE 12 video hit the Internet today and it features The Rock. Dwayne Johnson‘s inclusion in WWE 12 is promoted in the new video. The new WWE 12 video shows what The Rock will look like in the new video game, as well as a few action shots of The People’s Champ in game action.
[adinserter block=”2″]The Rock looks good, damned good in the game. The Rock’s character is completely based off of the current version of The Rock that WWE fans see in 2011. The promotion focuses on The Rock being back, yet in all honesty he has been around WWE video games for quite awhile.
THQ is offering The Rock as a free DLC with a pre-order of the video game. I see that pre-ordering on Amazon.com gets you The Rock. I would hold off before pre-ordering the game. Game Stop and maybe other video game retailers are likely to offer their own unique incentives to pre-order WWE 12 elsewhere.
The Rock’s appearance at WWE Survivor Series 2011 all makes sense now. The game is scheduled to be released November 22, 2011. The Survivor Series takes place November 20. If the video is any indication, The Rock will be a big part of the promotion for WWE 12. Putting it all together, it would appear that The Rock’s return at Madison Square Garden will be just as much about promoting WWE 12 as it will be to promote the Rock vs. John Cena at WrestleMania 28.
And I can’t imagine anyone having a problem with that.
The extended WWE 12 game trailer featured a fantastic video on Randy Orton. According to most reports, Randy Orton will be the face of the video game when it comes to game promotion.Maybe we can get a face to face or some kind of interaction with The Rock and The Viper at Survivor Series?
[adinserter block=”1″]It has been years since I have found a pro wrestling video game that I enjoyed playing. I tried SmackDown vs. RAW 2011 and was bored after a few minutes. I wound up giving away a free copy I received of Legends of WrestleMania. The graphics for WWE 12 look awesome, but graphics have never been the problem in my opinion. If THQ can get the controls right, this game has the potential to be on par with Madden when it comes to franchise gaming.
Regardless, WWE 12 hits stores November 22, 2011…just in time for the holidays.
