THQ kills three birds with one stone by providing a video which focuses on the combat system, a press release about the Ultimate Fights Mode and a new set of images to embellish it all. UFC 2010 Undisputed is planed for May 28th on Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP.
Press release :
UFC Undisputed 2010
ULTIMATE FIGHTS MODE
Ultimate Fights Mode is the evolution of UFC 2009’s Classic Fights Mode and allows players to relive some of the more memorable fights in UFC history. Players are given the opportunity to play the mode as a single player experience in an attempt to unlock content associated with each fight. Players can also play the mode as a two-player experience, squaring off against friends with special presentation and commentary elements.
Each fight opens with an introduction from one of the UFC Octagon Girls, Arianny Celeste or Chandella Powell, who break down the significance of each fight. Following the introduction, a pre-fight montage is played with comments from each fighter and a brief history on how the fight came to fruition. Once the prefight montage is over, the basic match flow occurs and gameplay begins.
The main difference between Classic Fights from last year and the Ultimate Fights for UFC Undisputed 2010 is the introduction of Fight Categories and Multiple Challenges for each fight. Assigning each fight to a category helps structure the mode and allows players to easily identify each type of fight, while the introduction of Multiple Challenges for each fight adds replayability to the mode.
Another new component is the ability to “play as the spoiler” (or the fighter who lost in real life) and provide additional challenges and unlocks associated with the losing fighter, where players look to “rewrite history.”
Upon completing all the challenges, the player unlocks the ultimate reward – a montage that recaps the actual Ultimate Fight itself.
UFC Undisputed 2010 will offer players 20 exclusive Ultimate Fights for the PlayStation 3, while Xbox 360 owners will have access to 15 Ultimate Fights. The Sony-exclusive Ultimate Fights list is as follows:
Ultimate 2009 Category
UFN 18 – Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann
it's in no way a dealbreaker for me. Hell....Dark Souls comes to mind with Blighttown and i still loved that area anyway. (2 minutes ago)
There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (3 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (21 minutes ago)
That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (28 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: Where arbitrary review scores fail is conveying any kind of context or comparison to give a sense of just how good something is. It's summaries like that that hammers the point home. (29 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: EDGE has always had a soft spot for nintendo anyway. (36 minutes ago)
