He needs your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle. He's the Terminator, and he's coming to a wrestling video game near you.

2K and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) announced on Monday that there will be two playable versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator in their upcoming video game WWE 2K16. Gamers will be able to play as the T-800 Terminator from "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" movies, but those characters will only be available for those who pre-oder the game. Those who wait to pick up WWE 2K16 on or after release day will be saying "hasta la vista" to playing the game as their favorite Terminator.

Schwarzenegger is a big wrestling fan, having made several appearances ringside at various WWE events, and was elected to the WWE Hall of Fame in January. With "Terminator Genisys" now playing in theaters around the world and Arnold's status as a huge wrestling fan, a partnership with the WWE to promote the Terminator character in a wrestling video game makes a lot of sense.

For those interested in the game, WWE 2K16 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 27 in the US, and on October 30 internationally.
