Fight Night Round 4 Button Controlled Punching Coming September
Written Tuesday, July 07, 2009 By Dan WebbView author's profile
Kotaku are reporting that EA will be releasing their button mapped punching controls for their well received Fight Night Round 4, this coming September.
One of our few complaints about the hugely impressive Fight Night Round 4 was the inability to choose to control the punching mechanism with the face buttons but thankfully they are looking to rectify that now.
"We strongly believe that the refined Total Punch Control is the most intuitive way to throw punches in Fight Night Round 4," the game's senior producer, Dean Richards, stated, "but we also want fans of the franchise to have an option."
For all those cynics out there who doubted otherwise, the downloadable content (I suppose it's more of a patch) will be free to download as well.
In addition to the September button mapping content, EA also announced that there will be another free update this coming August. The August content is set to feature a new gym, "new gameplay sliders" and new gear with an alternate version of Sugar Ray Leonard coming exclusively to the Xbox 360.
I have a feeling that EA may see a slight boost in sales for the title this coming September. Free content is always welcomed, right?
