by on February 2, 2011

Boxing fans, we suggest bobbing and weaving over to your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 right now, as EA have today unleashed the demo for the soon to be released Fight Night Champion.

The demo allows you to play as heavyweight legends, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, or current stars of the welterweight division, Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto. Gameplay time is limited to three rounds and the only available venue is Broadwalk Hall.

In addition to that, the demo also includes head-to-head online play. Now, you might not think much of this fact, but this is actually the first demo released by EA Sports to include head-to-head online play. We kid you not, this is information is 100% correct. How lucky does that make you feel right now? “Very”, should be the answer!

Now, before you step into the ring and start throwing random punches we highly recommend checking out gameplay information and “demo tips” trailer below. You never know, it just might be the difference between sweet victory and painful defeat!

Fight Night Champion introduces a host of gameplay improvements to the long running, critically acclaimed franchise. The refined punching system, dubbed “Full Spectrum Punch Control”, brings the most accessible and responsive controls ever to a Fight Night title. A new anaerobic stamina system tracks individual muscle groups separately, punishing a player’s overdependence on a single punch and encourages combination punching and diligent stamina management.

In addition, improved visuals, multiple control schemes, realistic damage, boxer-specific animations and multiple stun states round out the key gameplay improvements players will experience in the demo.

Fight Night Champion will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 1, 2011 in North America and March 4, 2011 in Europe.
