UFC Undisputed 2009 was a resounding success for the promotion, and the game developer THQ with over 3 million units sold around the world.
Work is now well under way on the sequel which is due to come out next spring, and details on the improvements you can expect to find in the 2010 edition are beginning to emerge.
A source close to the project Spoke to Fighters Only recently, and gave some clues as to what we might expect to see from the game.
“There’s been a lot of improvements made, particularly in relation to issues that fans raised after playing the first game. Collision detection has been improved, the way the ground game operates has been improved. There will be changes to the way submission escapes work, many fans felt it was too strength-based. And didn’t reflect the real-life skills of certain fighters.”
“There will also be new features to the career mode, with players finding that their fighter attracts media attention as he climbs the rankings. And there will be a wider range of options for customising the characters you build,” he revealed.
THQ will be under pressure to produce a significant upgrade on the current game now that EA Sports have also now thrown their hat into the ring with a rival game also scheduled for release in 2010.
More news on UFC Undisputed 2010 will be unveiled at the Spike TV Video Game Awards this Saturday, but in the mean time check out the teaser video that has just been released below.
