Back in August, 2K Games announced that “The People’s Champion,” Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, would act as Executive Soundtrack Producer for the new wrestling title WWE 2K18. His picks included a mixed bag of tunes including Tech N9ne, Boston, Bruno Mars, Joe Walsh, and more. In a recent video, the WWE Legend and popular actor discusses the reasoning behind his song choices.
This is not 2K Games’ first foray in soundtrack collaborations. Sean Combs (a.k.a. Puff Daddy) curated the music for WWE 2K17. The well-known publisher also partnered with Jay-Z to help pick the tunes for NBA 2K13.
WWE 2K18 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC if you bought the Deluxe Edition or the Cena (Nuff) Edition. The Standard Edition will hit store shelves on October 17, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will launch sometime this Fall. You can watch the latest trailer where they discuss the game’s new features and game modes.
