It’s always said that anything can happen in the WWE, and that holds especially true to the company’s annual wrestling game franchise. This year’s iteration, WWE 13, has promised fans a return to the Attitude Era with the game’s revamped campaign mode that takes place in the illustrious time period. Since some of the story mode will be taking place in the 90’s, there’s an unprecedented number of possible roster additions.
After being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, “Iron” Mike Tyson will be returning to a WWE ring exclusively in WWE 13. The baddest man on the planet was a notorious part of the fabled Attitude Era, and his alignment with D-Generation X became one of the most historic moments in WWE history. Sadly, the legendary boxer won’t come available on every disc, but all gamers have to do to unlock Tyson is pre-order WWE 13 at a participating retailer; similarly to The Rock in WWE 12.
After the former Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World was inducted into the Hall of Fame it was only a matter of time before he appeared in a WWE video game. The playable character, just like the real boxer, will have an arsenal of moves that focuses on punches to deliver the bulk of the damage. With the likes of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, CM Punk, and Mankind appearing as playable characters, gamers will have the option to find out how their favorite Superstars stack up against the iconic boxer.
