Meanwhile, IGN reported that the upcoming game release will enable video gamers to play smarter.

"WWE 2K16 adds extra layers of nuance that might seem small, but they actually invite players to wrestle smarter, and make better strategic decisions," IGN explained.

It also said that the game promises more real plays compared to earlier installments.

"WWE 2K16 plays more like an actual wrestling match looks, and that it engages me in ways wrestling games typically haven't," reported Vincent Ingenito of IGN.

An earlier update on the wrestling video game is the addition of two Arnold Schwarzenegger characters, which will be available to those who pre-order the game according to VG247.

"These are two playable Terminators, the T-800 from the first film, and the one from the sequel - Judgement Day," read the same report.

This announcement is reportedly something that could take minds off of the removal of Hulk Hogan after his WWE contract was terminated following the release of a tape where he was heard uttering racist comments.

Scheduled for released on October 27, "WWE 2K16" is still currently being developed for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Players can, however, preorder the game online for $59.99.
