LOS ANGELES--Peter Moore, president of EA Sports, took to the stage at the EA conference at E3 today to announce the publisher's new lineup of sports titles.
Moore kicked things off by detailing the upcoming Fight Night Round 4, which will now ship on June 25. The game will feature improved graphics, gameplay at 60 frames per second (improved from Fight Night Round 3's 30 frames per second), more realistic blood, and sweat spray and fluid controls.
The game has been made on an improved physics engine that will be able to detect where an opponent's blows land, as well as utilize a fighter's height and reach. Players will also be able to make their fighters get up close and personal with each other, with no barrier for close-range combat.
The visual style of the game has also been improved since the last title, using a dynamics-driven system to give depth and variety to such things as muscle tone and flex, as well as a fighter's facial expressions.
Fight Night Round 4 will feature athletes Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson and is out June 25.
