New Wrestler Skin System

Going back to the Wrestler Skin System, Aubrey shared a screenshot showing off some of the new skins and attires that players can expect in the new update.

The screenshot that was shared, showed off 3 new attires for Brit Baker, Cody Rhodes, and Tay Conti.

Summer of Punk Season Pass

Along with all of these updates to Elite GM, Aubrey revealed a new season pass for the game centered around the recently debuted CM Punk.

This season pass is expected to be available to players around the same time the Elite GM update is released.

Unlike the other updates that will be free to all players, the CM Punk season pass players will need to purchase to have access to premium content.

The Season Pass includes for players who buy it the following:

  • A CM Punk Avatar
  • 1 New Skin
  • 1 New Finisher
  • 1 New Gimmick (which Aubrey teased could be Ice-Cream related)
  • 5 New Accessories
  • 4 New Emotes

For anyone concerned that future stars may be locked behind paywalls, Aubrey stated that all of the AEW Superstars included in the game will be available to all players.

AEW Games Twitch Announcement

During the video, Allie and Aubrey were joined by the Dark Order's Evil Uno who had his own announcement to make to the fans.

The reveal was that AEW Games is going to have a joint channel on Twitch.tv that would include several of AEW's male and female superstars playing a wide variety of games.

This seems like a good idea to capitalize on a majorly of AEW's Superstars having separate Twitch channels with their own loyal fanbases.
