The rise of AllElite Wrestling is monumental. By giving fans an alternative to the WWE, AEW is currently making headlines once again as the company is about to launch a brand-new TV show on TNT called Aew Collision, which will feature the highly anticipated return of wrestling legend CM Punk. There are other AEW products hitting the market this month.
A new challenger is about to enter the arena to fight for video game supremacy. All Elite Wrestling will be entering the video game market for the first time later this month. Everything you need to know before the game releases, including a fresh roster of AEW wrestlers, an intriguing creation suite, and a retro-inspired style, can be found here.
The DLC release dates and character packs for the season pass have been revealed.
When the game is released later this month, it will be available on every major console. You can be sure that the game will be available on the system of your choice. Players on the PS4 and Xbox One will be able to play the game on the previous generation consoles. It's good news for PC fans as the game will also be available on Microsoft Windows, and we can't wait to see what the community has in store for the already stacked game.
The wrestling simulation type of action that wrestling fans have come to expect from the 2K series of games will be replaced by a more arcade-like system. Think back to the glory days of WWF No Mercy, WCW vs. nWo Revenge, and the early WWE games such as "Shut Your Mouth" and "Here Comes The Pain".
One of the most impressive rosters of professional wrestlers in the world today will translate directly into the game. Wrestlers such as CM Punk, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, and Brian Danielson have been announced. Wrestlers such as Owen Hart and Sting will also be in attendance. The tag team roster of FTR, The Hardy Boys, The House of Black, and The Youngbucks are all featured in the game. Fans can expect a lot from the women's roster. There will be a current wrestler in the game.
CM Punk at WWE Raw was the topic of discussion.
There is a lot of content for AEW: Fight Forever. The popular tag-team FTR will be in the game, but will be locked behind the DLC paywall. Fans who pre-order the "Deluxe Edition" will be able to play as these superstars immediately after the DLC is released. Pre-order exclusives include Matt Hardy and his alter ego. There will be no DLC in the base game. There are other DLC packs in the works.
The ability to create your own stuff in wrestling games has always been popular, and fans will be happy to know that AEW: Fight Forever will feature an expansive creation suite. The players will be able to create their own wrestlers. It looks like players will be able to modify existing roster members as well as make their own, which will allow them to update their attires to their heart's content.
One of the most popular features of the game is the story mode. Players will be able to play as their favorite AEW roster member or their created wrestlers and guide them on a career from the bottom to the top as they try to claim championship glory. Storylines will be changed by match outcomes, meaning your wins and losses will both count towards your career progress, and feuds and matches will change based on the decisions you make. If you want to be a career babyface or shock the world with a villainous heel turn, you can either train to increase your statistics or attend media scrums to increase your popularity.
Any wrestling game that is worth its salt should include some form of online play. Luckily, AEW: Fight Forever does just that, and players will be able to battle their friends and strangers from across the globe as the game supports couch-coop local play and online. If your friend is on the PS5 and you are on the Xbox, you can still fight each other, even if they are on different platforms. You will be able to grind your way to the top with online contests. Fans can only hope that the creation suite will have online access, since the community creations in the 2K series have been very popular.
There will be many exciting match types in the game. The basics of tag-team and one-on-one matches are included. That's not the only thing that's happening. The "Unsanctioned Lights Out" match, the "Stadium Stampede" match, the "Casino Battle Royale" match and even exploding barbed wire death matches are some of the home-grown match types that will be featured in AEW: Fightforever. We can expect a lot of match types in the game. This brings us to the top of the list and is an important feature that wrestling fans have been waiting for.
CM Punk was ranked by success when he went to the wrestling league.
Gore lovers are rejoicing. It will be possible to create your favorite hardcore wrestlers from the ECW years gone by. A lot of weapons will allow you to fulfill your violent wrestling dreams. Blood features in the game look brutal and will stay on the canvas rather than disappear. Over the years, AEW has featured blood in their matches and superstars such as Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho will be able to wear masks to match.
