Kotaku reader Ruffleberg and I are pretty big UFC/MMA fans, and after watching Alastair Overeem vs Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 we both started wondering about UFC Undisputed 3 and, specifically, the game’s singleplayer mode. The game is so close to release, but we still don’t know much about it — what gives?
I had hoped that this new trailer, released today by THQ and Yuke’s would possibly shine some more light on the game’s singleplayer career mode, but it doesn’t give too much away. This leads me to believe that not too much has changed since previous games.
Personally I was kinda hoping for a Fight Night Champion style drama. EA really managed to set the bar for career modes in sports games in my humble opinion, and after watching the movie Warrior, I was hoping for something along the same lines for UFC Undisputed 3. Maybe next time!
That said, even if it is scant on actual gameplay detail, this trailer is a pretty interesting watch. It features Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, who talks through some major points in his career, which included two ‘ass-whuppins’ from Wanderlei Silva, and intersperses this with simulated game footage replicating those matches. Cool stuff for MMA fans.
As for detail on the career mode itself? Well, I’m still waiting!
