Two years after WWE made its SummerSlam debut in the video game, World of Tanks, the company is returning to the multiplayer game sphere for yet another special crossover, this time with three of Epic Games’ most popular entries: Fall Guys, Rocket League, and Fortnite.
Asuka, Xavier Woods, and The Undertaker Ready to Enter Fall Guys Blunderdome
“World Stumbling Entertainment is here,” reads the Fall Guys news update on the new partnership. “If you’ve ever wanted to body slam in the Blunderdome, now is your chance. We’re goin’ against a triple threat of Champions – all successfully Beanified for Fall Guys.”
Asuka, Xavier Woods, and The Undertaker will all be available in the Fall Guys store from 5 AM ET on July 28 – August 1. In addition to costumes for each of the three wrestlers, Fall Guys will also have a special “The Bell Tolls Celebration” in honor of the Undertaker and “Francesca’s Refrain Emote” in recognition of Woods’ trombone companion.
Roman Reigns and John Cena to Rev up for Rocket League
Starting at 12 PM ET on July 28, players will be able to purchase a special SummerSlam bundle that includes octanes for both Roman Reigns and John Cena.
John Cena – “Making his debut as the Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena quickly grew a freestyle rap persona into one of the most extraordinary careers of all time, eventually winning 16 World Championships. Cena’s famous ‘You Can’t See Me’ slogan is emblazoned across a new Octane Decal, perfect for landing an Attitude Adjustment on unsuspecting foes.”
Roman Reigns – “Next up on the card is The Head of The Table himself, Roman Reigns. As a member of the famous Anoa’i family of wrestlers in real life and former member of The Shield, Reigns was always destined to take his place as the face of WWE’s New Era. Dish out devastating spears as Tribal Chief with Roman’s Octane!
You Can See Him!: John Cena Coming to Fortnite
Joining the Rock, John Cena is set to get his own Fortnite skin, as his character will debut in the game’s shop starting at 8 PM ET on July 28th. Cena’s skin is comprehensive (jorts and all!) and classic as it includes his trademark style and comes with both entrance gear and ring gear forms. With Cena’s debut, Fortnite is also introducing the WWE Championship to the game via the official John Cena set.
As the game’s release reads: “The WWE Championship Back Bling can now be worn by Fortnite players in battle while they beat up the competition with the Five Digit Slapper Pickaxe. Celebrate victories with the U Can’t C Me Emote, but don’t use it to hide from enemies… You will be visible, despite claims to the contrary.
