7 February 2011, Australia & New Zealand – The Fight Night Champion demo is now available on Xbox LIVE™ and the PlayStation®Network in Australia and New Zealand. The demo features four of the biggest names in boxing - past and present - and will be the first demo in EA SPORTS™ history to include head-to-head online play*.
XboxExclusive.com: Why have you decided to up the level brutality and level of violence?
Jeff Atienza: I wouldn’t say we are upping the level of brutality or violence in Fight Night Champion, I would say that we are making the overall visual presentation of our boxers and the damage they incur in our game to be more realistic and authentic to the sport. If you happened to catch the Pacquiao/Margarito fight a few weeks ago you will know what I mean. This year we will be pushing the realistic damage that occurs on a boxers face and body, and how that damage comes to paint the ring mat.
What’s up y’all! My name is Mike Mahar and I’m one of the producers/designers on FIGHT NIGHT CHAMPION. I’m extremely excited we’re finally announcing a new FIGHT NIGHT, we’ve got some really cool surprises in store for you in the coming months.
