THQ announced new details surrounding the company’s pre-order retail incentive programs in the United States and Canada for WWE 12. Often touted as “the most electrifying man in all of entertainment,” legendary WWE Superstar The Rock will be available as a playable character for consumers who pre-order the game at any participating retailer within the United States or Canada for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (while supplies last). The Rock’s in-game character will resemble his current-day appearance, including a shaved head and new tattoos.
In addition, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners who pre-order the game at GameStop in the United States or EB Games in Canada will receive bonus attire for WWE Superstar The Miz (while supplies last). Hailed as the “must-see WWE Superstar,” consumers will have access to his popular “I’m Awesome” entrance t-shirt, as well as one of his trademark business suits. Consumers interested in WWE ’12 for the Wii system from Nintendo will automatically receive The Rock as a playable character, as well as The Miz’s alternate entrance gear options, as part of their purchase.
WWE ’12 is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Wii, with a scheduled release date of November 22, 2011 in North America.
