Things have been awfully quiet on the AEW Fight Forever front lately, but things could get a bit more interesting very soon. WrestleZone is reporting that the game will arrive Day One on Xbox Game Pass.
While nothing officially has been announced, we’ll most likely be hearing much more about this rumor very soon with a possible release date finally revealed.
UPDATE: (11-8) The rumor has been squashed.
This also seems like a good time to share that we don't anticipate #AEWFightForever being part of any monthly gaming subscription services.
AEW: Fight Forever will be available in store at your favorite retailers or online. Reserve your copy today at: https://t.co/Nv3IuMVxiN

In this video, we get our first look at how extensive the movesets look in the menu and just how realistic each move looks. It appears wrestlers can have up to five finishers and five signature moves. To build up a special, you have to wear your opponent down while building up your meter. It looks precisely like No Mercy. The moves in Fight Forever look realistic too. For example, Kenny Omega hitting the One-Winged Angel looked picture perfect. When he took it one step further and did the avalanche version, I marked out. The arcade thud and animation as he hit the mat added a unique touch. The replays looked cool as well.
