UFC Undisputed 3, the third volume of the official video game franchise developed by THQ for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is scheduled for release in January 2012 for the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 consoles.
According to their press release, UFC Undisputed 3 will have “an extensive focus on intense toe-to-toe combat, impressive visual presentation and significantly increased accessibility”.
The game includes a new PRIDE Mode which will feature “PRIDE rules” such as soccer kicks, head stomps and knees to the head of a grounded opponent. And of course, Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros will serve as commentators.
Another addition to UFC Undisputed 3 will be the introduction of two new weight classes, featherweight and bantamweight, in honor of the WEC merging with the UFC.
UFC Undisputed 3 will have a playable roster of more than 150 UFC fighters, and the online play is also said to be completely revamped.
UFC President Dana White commented on the newest installment of the UFC Undisputed franchise:
“We are excited to launch UFC Undisputed 3 in January 2012 and expect it to be the best version yet. We’ve added two new weight classes and several new features to the game that will bring UFC fans closer to the Octagon than ever before.”
