WWE 2K18 features Seth Rollins as its generational-shifting cover star

Publisher 2K and the WWE revealed today that they picked Seth Rollins as the cover star for WWE 2K18, the next entry in the successful, yearly wrestling game series. WWE 2K18 is due out October 17 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

This is a generational shift for the franchise, as Seth Rollins represents a newer generation of WWE stars. Recent cover stars have included the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, The Rock, and Brock Lesnar. These are all wrestlers that have a long history with the biggest “sports entertainment” company in the world, and they all started their careers with the WWE in the ’90s or early 2000s.

But Seth Rollins made his WWE debut in 2010. Since then, he has become a two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

“As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly be like no one — a calling card perfect for everything I stand for — as it sets forth on its own unique path,” said Seth Rollins. “Following in the footsteps of other WWE 2K cover Superstars — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Brock Lesnar — I now carry the torch and proudly represent a new generation of WWE Superstars. I am the future, and the future can’t be stopped.”

2K has not announced a PC version of WWE 2K18 yet, but the latest entries have made that pilgrimage typically a few months after the console releases.

Radinn’s second-gen electric wakeboard is faster and cheaper

Nearly three years after we first saw Radinn's prototype electric wakeboard, the Swedish outfit is back with a redesigned version. The G2X will be on display at the Boot Düsseldorf show this week, showing off its capabilities like a swappable battery so owners don't have to wait for a two-hour charge between 25-minute rides. Those rides will be even more exciting though, since it's capable of 36 mph, up from 28 on the Wakejet Cruise. Better yet, the G2X is cheaper than its predecessor, with a price (before accessories like an add-on foil, "radical" upgrade to max out its top speed or additional battery packs) of 9,900 euros, or about $12,101 US.

It's going on sale later this year, however, there will be plenty of competition. E-Surfer Magazine lists 17 different models in the segment, and there will be new hardware shown at the Boot show from Lampuga and Elektrisches Jet Surfboard.
