The reveal date for the full "WWE 2K15" roster has been announced. According to a report from Attack of the Fanboy on July 22, the wrestling company confirmed that a special event is going to be held on Aug. 16. The "Summerslam Panel" will be hosted by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, one of the biggest names in the history of sports entertainment.
Joining him for the event is John Cena, the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion as well as the cover athlete for the video game. The other panelists include Cesaro, Hulk Hogan, Sheamus and Roman Reigns. The "Summerslam Panel," which takes place in Los Angeles, is starting locally in the morning at 10 a.m. PST. It is expected to last around two hours.
Despite being only a panel, the ticket prices are quiet expensive with the cheapest ones going for $50. The $100 tickets will let attendees sit at floor level while getting a signed poster. At $200, customers also get additional V.I.P. privileges such as being able to sit a lot closer to the stars than the regular watchers.
The aforementioned Sheamus has not yet been officially announced as a playable character in "WWE 2K15." However, it looks like he is going to be included as he will be a part of the special event to reveal the full roster. The Irish wrestler is the current United States Champion and has been featured on television programs over the years. A majority of the current active roster should be included in the upcoming title as well.
"WWE 2K15" is coming out shortly after the "Summerslam Panel," which may include a first look at the actual gameplay. The development teams, Visual Concepts and Yukes, have not yet shown any real-time footage although they promised that vast improvements have been made to the presentation aspects of the software product.
