Attention wrestling fans: far away from the WWE 2K series, you will have an alternative at hand in the future. Yukes is working on the new genre representative AEW: Fight Forever.
Together with publisher THQ Nordic, developer Yukes today AEW: Fight Forever announced a new wrestling title in association with All Elite Wrestling. The game is scheduled to be released for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Switch, but has no specific release date yet.
The title relies on a touch of nostalgia, but will also feature current wrestling moves from the AEW programs. There will also be offensive tandem moves, after all, the online co-op wrestling title is also breaking new ground with its tag team matches. Sequences of team maneuvers can be executed with simple commands.
Otherwise, of course, a long list of popular AEW wrestlers cannot be missing, as well as an extensive career mode and the possibility to create a wrestler, visit characteristic AEW arenas and start different match types.
Yukinori Taniguchi, President and CEO of Yukes, said: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with AEW – who are breathing new life into the pro wrestling industry – and the THQ Nordic brand, with the we created an entire era of pro wrestling games. With the expertise we’ve built up over the years, we’re embarking on this project with the best of the Yukes development team to bring the appeal of AEW into a video game in to the highest degree. We hope fans will enjoy experiencing the cutting-edge technology and next evolution in pro wrestling gaming.”
