AEW Games 2.Show

AEW Games held a panel over All Out weekend with the announcement of an official Twitch stream, content updates for Elite GM and more, and the video is online. The video was released as the latest episode of 2.Show, and you can see the video plus a recap below.

* The video starts with Allie and Aubrey Edwards discussing updates for AEW Elite General Manager, their mobile game. Edwards announced that there is a content update that is shooting for the week of September 14th, which will feature a lot of features they wanted in the game on release but couldn’t do for time reasons.

The update will include a news and event system for updates from within the game itself, wrestler skins on the way, new storyline missions and challenges, new avatars and finishes, a game compendium, and segment animations.

The content update will also feature 13 new wrestlers including Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black, Brian Pillman Jr., Thunder Rosa, Shawn Dean, Anthony Ogoo, Ryan Nemeth, Cezar Bonani, JD Drake, Wheeler Yuta, Julia Hart, Negative One, and CM Punk. Edwards noted that Negative One doesn’t even know that he’s in the game and has stats similar to Brodie Lee’s, with Edwards quipping, “So he’s OP, just like in real life.”

Ranked multiplayer is also on the way, as well as a championship belt system.

Regarding the season pass, the first season is going to be the “Season of Punk” and is coming this month. It will include a Punk avatar, a new skin, finisher, and gimmick each, five new accessories, and four new emoties for purchasers of the pass. (Punk will be available with the content update without purchasing, the season pass is simply for the extra content.)

* Up next was Evil Uno, who showed up to discuss that he has been employed by AEW Games for a few months and will be launching an AEW Games Twitch channel. The panel played a video of AEW stars playing various games such as Among Me, Super Mario Golf, and more. Uno announced that the channel will start at the end of the month and will include talent tournaments and more.

* Uno then brought out Jungle Boy, and showed off a video of his art within the console game. It included in-game footage on a a development build of Jungle Boy facing Darby Allin.
