In anticipation of the upcoming launch of the much-awaited "AEW Fight Forever," AEW luminaries Orange Cassidy and Evil Uno took to AEW Games' Twitch channel today to offer a more in-depth view of the wrestling video game.
Slated for release on June 29, the duo leveraged the live stream to exhibit the game's attention to detail and character-specific precision. Cassidy and Uno demonstrated four single-player matches, each promising a unique gaming experience.
Uno stepped into the shoes of Hikaru Shida, taking on Thunder Rosa, while Cassidy chose to play as his in-ring persona against Jungle Boy. Uno further underscored the game's versatility by orchestrating an intergender bout featuring Britt Baker and Chris Jericho.
Cassidy ended the live session with a face-off against MJF, again playing as himself. Much of the live stream discussed the game's intricate design details. The wrestler-specific move sets were spotlighted, which, according to Uno, not only accurately mimicked the moves of each wrestler but also encompassed undisclosed, secret moves absent from the game's menu, adding an element of surprise.
AEW Fight Forever: Detailed Features
Further features displayed during the stream were the capability to control pyrotechnics and camera angles during entrances, making each player's experience genuinely customizable. Other elements, such as perks based on certain conditions, like successfully evading a pin, were also highlighted.
For instance, the game pays homage to Cassidy's trademark style with an emulated ability to slip his hands into his pockets. While the duo did not disclose the "Character Select" screen, they vowed to release more details via the company's official Twitch channel in the following weeks.
In a video announcement earlier this week, Kenny Omega confirmed the game's release date and showcased brief clips of new footage. The initial line-up will feature 50 AEW superstars, including big names like Omega, CM Punk, and "Hangman" Adam Page.
With the expectation that more AEW stars will be progressively introduced, it's clear that "AEW Fight Forever" is set to impact the world of wrestling games significantly.
