EA Sports is looking to score a knockout when it drops Fight Night Champion on March 1st.
Lackluster sales for EA’s critical acclaimed Fight Night Round 4 has caused the EA Canada development team to head back into the ring and revamp many features from previous versions.
The one I am most stoked for is the new darker and mature career mode. The newest trailer takes boxing out of the casinos and back to the streets with a storyline that would make Rocky take a standing eight count. The career modes have been lacking in past versions and this looks like a stop in the right direction. As always the graphics look amazing and the gameplay will be slick, the only question that remains is if the gaming public will climb back in the ring with the new more gruesome action.
Fight Night Champion hits store shelves on March 1, 2011 for the XBox 360 and PS3.
