New Fight Night Game Announced

The most user-friendly title in the franchise’s history" is set for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 next year.

It will feature between 60 and 65 boxers and introduce "Full Spectrum Punch Control", which is described as "the most realistic punching system ever seen".

"Fight Night Champion will break the mould of what is expected in a single-player sports game. Players will be introduced to an entirely new way to step between the ropes and experience the drama, emotion, excitement and tragedy of world championship boxing," EA says.

Meanwhile, EA Sports boss Peter Moore has told Develop that focusing too greatly on Metacritic scores can put studios on “a slippery slope”.

“There were challenges five years ago in regards quality at EA that has all been put to bed,” he said. “We had 20 titles with a Metacritic of 80 plus in our fiscal year.”

However, he noted that it’s “almost impossible” to score mid-90s with iterative sports games.

“It is almost impossible to take an iterative annual sports title and get it into the mid-90s. There are no plot lines, no boss characters, no map packs. There will be metrics that I work into their objectives, but I don’t think it will be around Metacritic,” he said of his FIFA 11 development team.

“You can break Metacritic down and say ‘We can get two extra points by doing this’ but it may not actually enhance the gamers’ experience, and that is where there is a line we have to be careful we don’t cross. It is a bit of a slippery slope if you focus everything on Metacritic.”
