AEW: Fight Forever (PS5)
About this deal
While the AEW Fight Forever entrances are short, you're able to take control over your entrance while it's happening, by changing the camera angles, as well adding pyros and effects. That’s right. Something I expected to happen hours into Road to Elite, I’d achieved in a matter of minutes. It left the rest of the career mode feeling rather listless, as I’d already managed to obtain one of its most prestigious belts in the first hour of play. The titular Road to Elite isn’t as long or winding as you might think, it seems.
It’s been close to three years since All Elite Wrestling’s first video game was officially announced. Many performers within the company itself have long extolled the virtues of 90’s wrestling video game royalty – and in particular, WWF No Mercy – even going so far as to position AEW: Fight Forever as something of a homage. But with... A few matches in, the facade starts to crumble. The game’s visuals are painfully dated. Superstars have a plastic, almost action figure-esque look to them that’s more reminiscent of a wrestling title from the PS3 and Xbox 360 era. There’s also no commentary to speak of whatsoever, which makes matches feel a touch lifeless. That’s a strange omission, given the likes of Jim Ross and Excalibur have lent their voice talents to the game for narration. Dator, James (July 6, 2023).

He has always felt an affinity for the noble dachshund, the best kind of dog. What is it about wrestling games that make them so prone to some of the most mind-bending and comedic glitches in the industry? The infamous WWE 2K20 put the — admittedly pretty funny — problem on the map in a big way, but now, new release AEW: Fight Forever has some bugs of its own up its sleeve. Having released today on...

Later that month, Hiromi Furuta, senior producer at Yuke's, stated that WWF No Mercy was a key influence due to its popularity with fans of the genre, and that Fight Forever was not intended to rival the WWE 2K series.  In June 2021, the first in-development gameplay video was released, including the reveal of Darby Allin. In September, another short gameplay video featuring Jungle Boy was released.  On September 20, 2021, AEW announced a partnership with the Owen Hart Foundation to preserve the legacy of Owen Hart, which included an appearance in the forthcoming console game. This would mark Hart's first appearance in a video game since 2004 in Showdown: Legends of Wrestling, which was released by Acclaim.  In February 2022, Kenny Omega stated that the game would feature cross-platform play.  However, only cross-generation play was available at launch, with PS4 players able to connect with PS5 players, and Xbox One players being to interact with Xbox Series X/S players.
