UFC Undisputed 2010 Requires Code To Play Online
The company confirmed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions UFC Undisputed 2010 will require players to entire a one-time use code to access the games multiplayer modes and features.
The code is available with all new copies of the game. If the game is bought used and the code has already been redeemed, then a $5 access fee is required.
"THQ is delivering a truly unmatched online gaming experience for fans of UFC and across all fighting games in general," the company said in a statement issued to IGN. "The main enhancement of UFC Undisputed 2010s premium online content is the new "Fight Camp Mode" in which players can assemble ranks of up to 40 people and train together.
"This is a significant value-add to the game as players can continually improve their skills by training with their friends and bringing teams of MMA specialists together."
UFC Undisputed 2010 is set for release next week. THQ said it will have additional details at a later date.
One-time use access codes continue to be a growing trend in the industry.
Electronic Arts plans to soon implement the "Online Pass," a code that must be entered before players are granted access to multiplayer modes in most of the publishers upcoming sports titles.
Ubisoft has also stated it plans to combat used sales with a similar method.
