There hasn’t been a real attempt to make a boxing video game since the release of Fight Night Champion in 2011. While there are Rocky-themed video games and plenty of VR and mobile games, real boxing game with real boxers. he has not been released for more than ten years.
That wait seems to be coming to an end with the release of Undisputed. Known as eSports Boxing Club (ESBC), Steel City Interactive’s fighting game has been in development for a long time. What started as a small project focusing on British boxers has expanded to include Muhammad Ali, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Roy Jones Jr in his growing list of projects.
While the release date has not been announced yet, fans will be able to try out the game soon. Arguably it will be available for a limited time next weekend as part of extensive beta testing. Steel City says that this period will be used to “test online tools and gameplay experience before release on Steam Early Access”.
The beta test will allow you to choose from four different boxers and one location, while giving a first glimpse of what this anticipated game has to offer.
Here’s how you can get your hands on Undisputed and start perfecting those skills before the full release.
