How AEW: Fight Forever may borrow from Fortnite

Enter the Stadium Stampede!

Yesterday, Twitter user LynchReborn discovered some interesting details within the code from AEW: Fight Forever. The leaked code suggests the game will feature a Fortnite-inspired version of AEW’s Stadium Stampede. According to the Tweet, the leaked code reveals the online mode, which will allow 30 players to compete in the stadium in a battle royale.

Other details in the code suggest similarities to other games with online battle royale modes. The mode will feature all 30 superstars in the stadium with an ever-shrinking circle as the match progresses. There will also be loot chests and loadouts, as well as some interesting vehicles. These vehicles range from golf carts to a horse.

However, neither developer Yuke’s nor publisher THQ Nordic confirmed the mode’s existence. Whether this mode is a planned surprise remains uncertain. There is also the possibility that this is unused code from a scrapped idea, or the mode may come in a patch update post-launch. Either way, we only have a couple days left of waiting to know for sure.

The trailer also shows off additional gameplay featuring Omega as he takes on the likes of Jon Moxley, “Hangman” Adam Page and Adam Cole. The footage also highlights the title’s arcade alternative approach to WWE’s simulation style gameplay. With over-the-top character models and animations, AEW: Fight Forever looks to take wrestling games to their arcade-style roots.

We wanted to develop an arcade experience that was fun, easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master.
