Instead, the cover art shows an enlarged likeness of John Cena in Lesnar’s place.

He was announced alongside Quan Chi, Omni-Man, Homelander, Ermac and Takahashi Takeda as the first batch of DLC characters in July last year. Cena will reprise the role, providing both Peacemaker’s voice and likeness.
