UFC fans may still have a few months to go until the much-anticipated UFC Undisputed 3 game finally arrives in stores, but it looks as though it will definitely be worth the wait. Both Yuke’s and THQ have listened to all of the complaints and feedback they received for the previous two UFC Undisputed titles, and have made several changes in the hope of making the third installment the best game yet.
As Pete over at thecontrolleronline.com recently noted, THQ has answered fans questions on what changes they have made to the upcoming UFC Undisputed 3 title, providing us with new game details in the process. Those of you that have played the previous UFC Undisputed games will know that it was quite difficult to escape a clinch. However, changes have now been made to make it easier.
When you are on the offensive side of a clinch, your grip will loosen with every punch, elbow and knee you throw, eventually enabling your opponent to escape. The rate of damage has also been increased, so your opponents will now be knocked out or knocked back sooner than they did in previous games. When players were on the defensive side of a clinch before, they could only transition their way out.
That isn’t the case anymore however, as players have been given more options. Players can either navigate their fighter to safety, or simply punch their way out of the clinch. Another notable change is to the game’s difficulty. Not only have they made the AI on Expert Mode better, they’ve also added an even harder difficulty known as Ultimate. The AI in this mode will perform strategies and moves not seen on other difficulties.
Speaking of AI, this is another area that appears to have been improved; with AI now fighting more like a real person would if they were in control of them. Not only have their timing and strategies been improved, but also their overall difficulty. The ‘Create a Fighter’ feature has also received some changes, and the weighting on stats is even more so in the UFC Undisputed 3 game.
This of course means that you will no longer have to step into the cage with someone’s super CAF. Players will also be able to customize their walk-outs in the UFC Undisputed 3 game, including the music and their fighters outfit. You can read more about the changes over at thecontrolleronline.com. If you don’t already know, the roster for the UFC Undisputed 3 game includes Dan Hardy, Brandon Vera and Rashad Evans.
