Whether you’re a fan of WWE, AEW, turn-based RPGs, or all three, the WrestleQuest presentation at Guerilla Collective 3 is a must-watch. While there have already been trailers for the wrestling-themed RPG, this presentation gave us a closer look at the gameplay of WrestleQuest.
The presentation showed off a tag team match between the player characters and real-life wrestling legends The Road Warriors. The animations and art looked great, but the real showstopper was the introduction of the hype meter. The hype meter builds as players use unique and exciting tag team and special moves, so there’s a lot of incentive to approach each match with varied tactics that will spice up every battle. Once the hype meter is built up and the crowd is invested in the match, you’ll get bonuses like better loot and more damage.
If you manage to defeat or aid any of the 20+ wrestling legends in WrestleQuest, you have a chance to earn their iconic gear or gain access to them as a summon. I, for one, love the idea of summoning Jake “The Snake” Roberts in my big match against “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
WrestleQuest is looking like a real championship contender, and you can check out their presentation at Guerilla Collective 3 below:
The game will be available on PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox Series X|S and One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. For more WrestleQuest news and all things RPG, stay tuned to RPGFan.
