INTELLIGENT CORNER ADVICE
Thousands of lines of intelligent, contextual dialogue from real live UFC coaches emerge from the fighter’s corners cage-side, providing on-the-fly advice and encouragement both during fights and between rounds.
AUTHENTIC CROWD REPRESENTATION
Crowd audio is now meticulously tailored for every size of venue, from sparse training environments to Olympic-caliber arenas, and responds in authentic fashion to every momentum shift encountered inside the Octagon and Ring. Massive crowd chants now resonate for all your favorite UFC roster fighters, as well as your custom created fighters.
“WORLD FIGHTING” MUSICAL SCORE
Authentic, film-quality musical compositions contextually embellish the user’s choices and results throughout the various modes of the game, encapsulating the international flair that mixed martial arts has achieved. Furthermore, hundreds of music tracks from a myriad of various genres add to the pageantry of fighter entrances.
GAME IS WATCHING YOU 2.0
All-new, expanded “GIWY” commentary tracks your fighter’s progress for every mode in the game – Ultimate Fights, Career Mode, Tournament Mode, Title and Title Defense Mode.
PRIDE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN ALL ITS GLORY
Every aspect of the Pride experience is faithfully recreated, from Lenne “The Screaming Lady” Hardt introducing fighters, to the referee’s instructions pumped through the PA, to the one-of-a-kind play-by-play commentary by the legendary broadcast duo of former UFC Heavyweight Champion “El Guapo” Bas Rutten and “The Fight Professor” Stephen Quadros.
Check out Part 1 of Inside The Octagon where UFC Undisputed 3‘s Audio Director, Antoine Peltier talks about the major improvements to audio presentation and most notably the commentary in UFC.
Being a longtime PRIDE fan myself, I’m really excited to play through the game’s PRIDE FC mode and listen as the always funny and interesting “El Guapo” Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros commentate on my matches. I’m also looking forward to listening to corner advice on strategies and techniques on how to defeat my opponents. If I’m having some problems with my standup game, I’m going to be relying on my corner men to give me some sound advice and hopefully stick with the gameplan enough to get the W.
UFC Undisputed 3 is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 14, 2012.
