After many years, the wide range of alternatives that usually exist in wrestling video games is opening up a bit, a genre that was dominated by WWE franchises and a few more niche circuits, mostly Japanese. AEW Fight Forever manages to diversify the genre, curiously by the hand of Yukes who previously developed WWE titles such as Smackdown vs. BELIEVED.
Interestingly this is the first time IP All Elite Wrestling has had their own game on consoles, and superstars like CM Punk, Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley remain in the lead.
The AEW Fight Forever promises a bright future.
In response to a recent announcement during the THQ Nordic meeting, the AEW announcer Tony Schiavone and Dr. Britt Baker enjoy a title match. Although visually inferior to WWE 2k22, the competitor’s movements look fluid and much more an arcade than simulation.
Other details that attract attention are the very varied mini-games available for the player and the confirmation that career mode will be present as well. Although the title has no deadline for release date, we already know it will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, PS4, Xbox 5 and Nintendo Switch.
