A listing has popped on the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) for the upcoming AEW Fight Forever game. Under the listing, the video game has received a T For Teen rating for Blood, Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, Violence. It also reads as follows:

“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.”

AEW Fight Forever does not yet have an official release date. However, the ESRB rating news hopefully indicates that one might be announced soon. The game is due out later on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch.
