AEW: Rise to the Top is set for an August 27th European Beta launch on iOS and Android; the same day as AEW’s massive event at Wembley Stadium.
The passion for creating a wrestling game has been a long-standing interest within East Side Games Group (ESGG).
Former professional wrestler, Jamie Henwood, graduate of The Hart family’s famous Dungeon, joined ESGG and is now the Lead Designer for “AEW: Rise to the Top,” bringing a fan-first focus to the game.
Fans residing outside Europe will have the opportunity to sign up for the Beta version of AEW: Rise to the Top online. The Beta will help ESGG create a genuine gaming experience that reflects AEW’s spirit. The game is scheduled for release in North America and other regions outside of Europe later this year.
“AEW is proud to partner with ESGG to bring the excitement of our unique brand of professional wrestling to mobile gamers around the world,” said Mark Caplan, Vice President of Licensing and Games for All Elite Wrestling.
“This game helps advance our strategy to connect our TV and PPV broadcasts with the interactive games space. We couldn’t have done this without the original creative vision of Game Masons’ development team, and the joint production and marketing efforts of ESGG and AEW.”
‘The combination of my two ultimate loves, Wrestling and Video Games, has been a total dream come true,” says Jamie Henwood. “Storytelling is a vital part of wrestling; I’ve poured my heart and soul into crafting narrative driven experiences that deliver an action-packed experience that will resonate with the fans.”
