THQ Nordic and Yuke’s Media Creations have announced that AEW: Fight Forever, the officially licensed All Elite Wrestling game, will be available on June 29 for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Announced in a new trailer (above), the long awaited wrestling game finally got its release date after being revealed two and a half years ago.
AEW wrestler and executive vice president Kenny Omega took centre stage in the trailer to announce the June 29 date and that pre-loading is now available. “Thank you so much for your patience and being awesome fans,” he added.
AEW: Fight Forever promises to bring easy to pick up but difficult to master arcade wrestling gameplay alongside a full campaign mode, multiplayer, create-a-wrestler, and “various other unusual modes”.
Confusion around its release date occurred earlier this year when Omega said the game was finished but in limbo due to an ESRB rating, though THQ Nordic senior community manager Per Hollenbro later said that this wasn’t the case. Thankfully for fans, however, this has now been resolved and the game is launching in just over a month.
In our preview of the game, IGN said: “[Our] impression of AEW Fight Forever is that it is exactly what it looks like: A throwback to what many view as the Golden Age of wrestling games.”
