eSports Boxing Club Adds Deontay Wilder

Steel City Interactive has added Deontay Wilder to the growing list of fighters in eSports Boxing Club. Head over to the official site to see the full roster that has been announced so far. It includes over 200 fighters.

As for the early access launch window, the team simply doesn’t want to rush things, especially based on expectations not only from the fans, but from the developers as well.

  1. I wonder if we will have to pay to get these fighters and I wonder how close they are to releasing the game?
    For me I never buy the extra stuff for these games. I buy the base game and play it.
    Some of the character models in this game are just so dope. Getting the body proportions to match the amazing face scans is really amazing comparatively to some of these studios with vast resources.

    Nah, anything they reveal now is included in the base roster. I'm sure they'll do post-launch DLC but as of now that is not something to be concerned about.
    Anything release related is complete speculation at this point but considering they don't even have a release date listed anymore, I'm not expecting it anytime soon. Would not be surprised if it takes another year.

    You are absolutely wrong! You have this indie company confused with EA. Steel City Interactive can't afford to pay these boxers; many are promised a percentage of the DLC or royalties.
    The major stars will more than likely be DLC because they could break the bank and recover. I highly doubt game sales will cover boxers, upgrading the staff, paying off investors and brands. They need DLC to show the game is profitable. They don't want to barely break even.

    They have to pay boxers some way and major stars aren't cheap!

    Okay so what you are saying is that when SCI presents this game as having the biggest roster in any boxing game ever, that is actually only the case when consumers go around buying each of the fighters individually because they don't have the money to provide them in the base roster? Well that's not going to be received very well. No matter how good the game is.
    They are going to have to provide a good base roster to the consumer or this game is going to be a complete joke no matter how good it looks, if it is riddled with DLC at launch. Where was this mentioned by the way? I know of their post-launch DLC plans but you are telling us that we can expect big names to be additional transactions?
    Yeah. They have confirmed all these names are not on the base roster and just they will feature in the game. So as of now we don’t know what or how that will work. I’m expecting it to get very expensive. I can see solo names like Fury and Ali being expensive solo packs but I hope I’m wrong.

    Interesting. Do you remember where they said this? I kind of want to get up to speed on that one aswell then.
    I tweeted at them a few times, asking if it's even coming out this year.
    They don't even reply to tweets.
    It honestly looks like they went from a small studio with a decent game, then got massive funding, and now probably won't even be released this year.
    If it were, it would say holiday 2021; they keep on stretching things out to stay relevant by adding Fighters every month, getting a bit tiresome, to be honest.
    Again this is just my opinion, but the fact that they ignore tweets and they don't have many people tweeting at them is a big red flag.

    They have someone there answering some questions. The devs stay on their Discord. I have talked to the Founder of Steel City Interactive numerous times; actual his brother too. The team is trying to stay focused on this project with the very tiny team they have compared to EA's Fight Night's team.
    They don't answer on Twitter, yet have  a Twitter account and Tweet when there's something new.
    That would make it even more imperative that a tiny company would reply to their customers or future customers.
    I want them to succeed we all need a great boxing game, but these delays and lack of response on Twitter still keeping an open mind.
    Unless I missed an update there’s no specific date for release. It will eventually come out for Consoles but the first release will be PC only.
