August ESBC Update Addresses Presentation and Career Mode

In this month’s update for ESBC, the dev team touched on presentation and career mode (among other things). This is all based on the most recent gameplay walkthrough and dev update.

The major comments that stood out revolved around camera angles, shake/flashes, and combat/punches. In addition, we received confirmation that there will be multiple camera angles at launch. The camera angle that was displayed during the gameplay update seems to be a broadcast camera that rotated and zoomed in on the action when fighters were in a position to land punches. Another area of focus was around the shake and flash effects that generally happen when a well-timed hard punch lands.

Some folks felt the effects were a little too excessive, and this may be because of one brutal exchange between Lyndon Arthur and Lawrence Okolie. Both fighters threw punches that were hard and connected with power, causing a lot of shakes and flashes in a short period — talk about fireworks in the ring. I think these effects provide a good visual aid, and there’s something about the sound and overall shake-up of the fighters on the receiving end of that hard punch. The good thing is for those who dislike these effects, we can toggle them on or off. This could provide a more realistic experience for those dying for a boxing sim.

They also shined some light on the career mode hub that was shown briefly during the gameplay update. They noted you will move around the gym and train. This includes sparring and interaction with your trainer. Furthermore, they also mentioned that you can change your equipment and attire. In today’s gaming climate, I think fighter fashion will be major. Let us hope for many options to create our own personal style.

They mentioned that there will be other aspects associated with boxing. I am crossing my fingers for features like media workouts (invite the media to your gym), gym wars (rival sparring partners), and film study (watch fight footage of your opponent). Oh, and add the ability to customize our hub as well — the ideas could be endless!

The update concludes with some changes in how they are going to deliver updates in the future. This appears to be the end of the monthly text updates, and the team will continue to provide information when there is something of value to share. I will not lie. I felt very spoiled knowing I was going to receive an update monthly. The monthly streak may be broken, but the quality for future updates will hopefully remain.

  1. Had high hopes for this game.
    It keeps getting pushed back and back. How many times do we hear we're doing it to make the game beautiful and perfect.
    The fact that it's going to be released on current-gen systems, original PS4 and Xbox One, is disheartening.
    It means they're catering to the masses instead of PC initially, which would blow away any console.
    Once I heard they brought on people from EA and others and more funding that meant nothing good, they still keep showing footage from a March Alpha. Why are they doing that?
    I hope I'm wrong, but it seems like they're just throwing out nonsense now buying time; my main concern is they're trying to get it to every system instead of getting it to every best approach should be only released for PS5 Xbox series s / x + PC
    The PS4 and Xbox One would not support these mind-blowing graphics and gameplay.
    You can't fault them for wanting to release it on old gen systems. Pretty much all sports games are still doing that and this company needs all the exposure and potential sales they can get.
    patiently waiting for this game......seems like they are really taking their time to perfect the game, instead of rushing the release and constantly patching bugs or fixes.
    The last time we had this kind of movement and warm and fuzzy feeling, we were given gems like: Backbreaker, and all pro football. Games that we were willing to kill for and walked away heartbroken. They have hyped this game up and provided a game that we all want. Now, give us a good game and stop procrastinating!!
    Great update! I can’t wait to receive the new updates until they release the game in 2023. �� Also boxing is a dying sport. MMA and WWE are bigger and more popular. They modest we’ll be making a game about cricket.

    It's possible the long delay is trying to program the game for current and next gen over 4 platforms.
    I have one suggestion when you get whacked with a super hard shot, why not just let the joypad Rumble?
    Or if your stamina is super low and you're getting hit, start to rumble to let you know to hold and tie up the opposing fighter trying to buy time.
    At least an option for this instead of making animations showing a guy's hurt.
