Yesterday, new details about AEW: Fight Forever, the new wrasslin’ game from the All-Elite Wrestling promotion, appeared to have leaked via Amazon, including the existence of a full career mode, Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatches, and other ways to mix it up. Well, now those details have been confirmed by new publisher THQ Nordic (a fitting partnership considering THQ published WWE games back in their heyday). Some new details were also confirmed, including the game having a full creation pack that will allow you to customize wrestlers, move sets, entrances, arenas and more. A few new screenshots, which you can check out below, have also been released.
Of course, since nothing in the wrestling business stays secret, this official reveal of AEW: Fight Forever information is accompanied by another leak. A gameplay trailer that was supposed to be shown next week slipped early. It features our most extensive look at in-ring action yet, as well as a variety of weird-looking multiplayer party games. Check it out below.
There’s no denying AEW: Fight Forever’s visuals are a bit dated, but the action looks fast-paced and impactful. After years of expensive looking but boring WWE games, I’d be happy to play a wrestling game that was actually, you know, entertainment. Here’s hoping AEW: Fight Forever succeeds. Here is the official feature list of the game…
“Nostalgia is just the beginning in AEW: Fight Forever. Players can look forward to performing the most up-to-date wrestling moves seen in the wildly popular AEW programs. This, in addition to innovative tandem offensive moves. Online co-op wrestling is taken to a whole new level with Tag Team matches that feature sequences of team maneuvers executed with simple commands. A long list of the most popular AEW wrestlers, a deep career mode, wrestler creation, distinctive AEW arenas, multiple types matches and even some good old fashioned unsanctioned fun!”
