Hot on the heels of the details about UFC 2009 Undisputed's upcoming patch comes news about EA Sports prepping some downloadable content for its fighting game, Fight Night Round 4. Two DLC packs are planned so far--both free--that will add some new content and address some fan concerns about the game, particularly in terms of control.

The first DLC, due in early August, will add a new training gym, tunable gameplay sliders and new equipment for your boxer. According to a Kotaku article, the gameplay sliders will cover three gameplay areas: Counter Punch Window, Boxer Stamina, and Punch Accuracy. The Xbox 360 version will include an exclusive alternate version of Sugar Ray Leonard as well.

The second DLC, due in early September, will let players use face buttons to throw punches, a feature that a vocal minority of Fight Night fans have been in an uproar about for seemingly months. In the press release, FN 4 senior producer Dean Richards had this say, "We strongly believe that the refined Total Punch Control is the most intuitive way to throw punches in Fight Night Round 4, but we also want fans of the franchise to have an option."

Translation: "Here you go, you big whiny babies."

While I'm personally not interested in button-punch controls, it's nice that EA is giving fans the option to play how they want. And for free to boot.
