AEW: Fight Forever to Include Casino Battle Royale Mode at Launch

Get ready to wrestle! Yuke's Co.

There are still a few days left before AEW: Fight Forever is officially released. However, we're getting another reason why fans should be excited about this game, and that's Casino Battle Royale Mode, enabled at launch.

For those not familiar with this format, this is a modified "rumble rules battle royale" involving 21 wrestlers. The "Casino" part refers to the special "deck of cards" entry system used by wrestlers. What happens is that wrestlers are divided into different suits: hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs. Each suit has a specific number of participants. When the card of the wrestler is called, they enter the ring and try to eliminate their opponents by throwing them over the top rope. Once a wrestler has been eliminated, they are removed from the match. The battle continues until only one wrestler remains.
