A few days ago we brought you news about a title update for Electronic Arts’ popular boxing game, Fight Night Champion. We also mentioned that the game was going to receive some new DLC, although at that point we didn’t have a specific release date or any details.
However, we now have a bit more information about the upcoming DLC, including when we can expect it to arrive. According to Owen Good over at uk.kotaku.com, the new downloadable content adds bare-knuckle fighting to the Fight Night Champion game.
The DLC’s new bare-knuckle ‘Old School Rules’ feature will be added to both online and offline gameplay, and will play out just like the prison sequences that featured in the game’s narrative mode: no referee, no timed rounds and the last man standing.
However, not all of the licensed boxers in the game’s roster will be included in the ‘Old School Rules’ feature. Big names such as George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali, Ray Leonard, Evander Holyfield, Oscar De Lay Hoya and Roberto Duran will not be available.
The upcoming DLC package will also bring five legendary boxers to the game: Floyd Patterson, Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson and Jack Dempsey. The downloadable content arrives on the Xbox 360 on March 29th and on the PS3 on March 30th.
Are you looking forward to the upcoming DLC?
