THQ have announced a pre-order promotion for the upcoming WWE 13 that will unlock Mike Tyson as a playable character in the game. Gamers will be able to unlock the “baddest man on the planet” by ordering the game from any participating retailer, rather than one particular chain, as long as they do so before the game releases later this year.
“As one of the most dominant champions in boxing history and one of the most memorable guests to ever be featured on WWE programming, Mike Tyson led an incredible revolution that changed the way fans perceive the sport,” said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President, Global Brand Management, THQ. “He was a tremendous addition to the ‘Attitude Era’ and is certain to attract a wide variety of fans to ‘live the revolution’ offered in WWE ’13.”
“The baddest man on the planet is back – and only in WWE ’13,” said Mike Tyson. “Fans everywhere can now relive what I experienced during the ‘Attitude Era.’”
