New features we need to see in TEW 2025

It’s been three years since Greydog Software rolled out the latest addition to their Total Extreme Wrestling series.

TEW 2020 continues the tradition of being a fan-favourite pro-wrestling booking simulator, challenging players to helm their wrestling promotion.

Renowned for its unparalleled depth, the series boasts a dedicated fanbase and an extensive library of mods, solidifying its position as a standout in its genre.

Thanks to the impressive TEW 2020 mods, players can dive into wrestling history, from the glory days of Hulk Hogan in the WWF during the ’80s to the heated Monday Night Wars of the ’90s, and beyond.

The anticipation surrounding the next instalment is palpable, as fans eagerly await news of enhancements and additions in the upcoming Total Extreme Wrestling release.

With no new game announced for release in 2024, it’s reasonable to expect Total Extreme Wrestling 2025 to hit the shelves next year.

While details about TEW 2025 remain under wraps, fans can rest assured that Greydog Software is hard at work crafting another exceptional sequel.

Now, let’s dive into what we hope to see in TEW 2025. Share your thoughts on the article and let us know which features you’re most excited about for the upcoming Total Extreme Wrestling game.

TEW 2025 New Features

  • Collaborative Shows: Introduce the option for cross-promotional events, akin to AEW & NJPW’s Forbidden Door or the historic NJPW-WCW jointly-promoted event in North Korea.
  • Hometown Advantage: Implement a hometown boost mechanic where wrestlers perform better in their hometowns, reflecting the heightened energy and support they receive from local crowds, as seen in matches like Sami Zayn vs Roman Reigns in Montreal, or Bad Bunny in Puerto Rico.
  • Attendance Impact: Reflect real-life scenarios where star debuts or hometown heroes significantly affect attendance, such as CM Punk’s debut on AEW Rampage drawing one of the promotion’s largest crowds.
  • Debut Dynamics: Enhance the impact of wrestler debuts by assigning them higher ratings to capture the shock and excitement of their arrival, with potential long-term build-up to create anticipation among fans.
  • Realistic Management: Update game mechanics to better align with the intricacies of modern wrestling, addressing issues like restrictions on worker trades between child companies like ROH, which may hinder realism.
  • Tag Team Booking: Allow for the booking of tag team matches on house shows to facilitate experimentation and gauge chemistry between partners beyond the confines of televised events.
  • Nostalgic Returns: Introduce a nostalgia bonus mechanic where returning veteran wrestlers participating in one last match receive boosts in ticket sales and match ratings, mirroring real-life instances like Keiji Mutoh’s retirement tour or Ric Flair’s final match.
  • Venue Pre-Booking: Enable players to pre-book venues weeks in advance, empowering them to strategize touring schedules, maximize fanbase engagement, and optimize production costs.

These are just some of the new features TEW 2025 needs to have. Tell us in the comments which new feature you’d most like to see in the next edition of Total Extreme Wrestling.
