I can't see anything coming close to thrill of the fight and number 2 coming soon
that title is VR only, right!? if so, what single or triple screen game is bringing more immersion to the table than the VR version?! ;)
VR will always be more immersive, imo (doesnt mean its the better overall package though)!

i just cant wait for PSVR2.0 for PS5 to drop!!!

That does look good. Surprised it's taken this long for a new boxing title.

I wish they would give you the option of TV coverage style camera angle in combat sports games. I don't like the gamey ones so much that orbit around the fighters even if they're practical.
I asked the developers and they said they are working on something like that

Hoping that they will put some efforts into the legends side of thing and perhaps adopt the rules to reflect the period those fighters fought in, one of the classic vintage fights that show how tough the sport was decades ago for me is Dempsey v Willard:


Dempsey knocked Willard down seven times in the first round—although it should be remembered that rules at the time permitted standing almost over a knocked-down opponent and hitting him again as soon as both knees had left the canvas.
No neutral corners on knockdowns, things like that made the fight relentless and brutal.

So cool to have a black and white filter option for legendary fighters. I don't think we'll get the rules Placebo wanted tho. Prob 3 knockdown rule option

Some fighter announcements and a little bit of gameplay:

as i'm currently re-entering the PC ring (yeah, like a roller coaster), how does that work with those early access stuff?! how do i register for that?
my personal main focus will be racing sims, but i've been craving for a new boxing title for years, so this is becoming more and more interesting to me!

Normally early access games just appear on Steam, unless they are Kickstart then you normally get a link emailed to you to download the title.

I'm 0% interested in boxing, but wow - that looks so good, and so sim-based, I might just buy it...
Yep that is what they are aiming for, "A true boxing sim"
Also funny enough the director of the game was a former pes player, so I think that plays some part in what they are trying to achieve

It has been brillantly following the development of this game, clearly the devs want to make a proper simulation and the understand the mechanics of doing so. The video is promising, hopefully they can deliver what they have promised and do not comprimise the vision that they have set for this game.

Really hyped for this game although the hit detection looks a little off in that gameplay clip but I read they are aware and still working on it.
