AEW surprised fans when they announced they were venturing into the video game world. The game will have a ton of top stars from the AEW roster, including the likes of Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley and others. The game will be a violent one, and now the game finally has an ESRB rating.
The AEW video game will be released sooner than expected. The game will be called AEW: Fight Forever and will feature a loaded roster of pro wrestlers as well as a lot of match variety that fans will love.
AEW Fight Forever is set to be the groundbreaking debut video game from All Elite Wrestling for console platforms. However, recent reports by Matt Black of WrestleZone indicate that the game is yet to receive an official release date due to difficulties in securing a Teen rating from ESRB. Now it seems that the ESRB has an official rating, and you can check out the summary below.
This is a wrestling game in which players compete in matches with wrestlers from the AEW roster. Players use punches, kicks, and grappling maneuvers to drain their opponents’ health. In some match types (e.g., Barbed Wire, Stadium Stampede, Unsanctioned) players can use barbed wired, baseball bats, metal chairs, and Molotov cocktails against opponents, eventually resulting in submission and/or knock outs. Blood-splatter effects can occur during matches, staining the mats; video footage of real matches also depicts blood on wrestlers’ faces and bodies. The game contains some mildly suggestive material: female wrestlers in revealing outfits (e.g., deep cleavage, bunny outfits, partially exposed buttocks); wrestlers performing taunting gestures (e.g., crotch chop, slapping buttocks). Real footage sometimes depicts wrestlers drinking alcohol and smoking. The word “sh*t” is heard in the game.
The game will also feature bloody matches such as the Lights Out match and more. It is also expected to drop on PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC by next year. We will have to wait and see how the game will be received by fans and critics alike.
