eSports Boxing Club Adds Post-Fight Interviews

This past week we received some interesting news regarding eSports Boxing Club.  We were excited to learn that post-fight interviews will be a feature in the game. Fight Connect TV hostess Lydia Des Dolles confirmed they have something exciting planned for post-fight interviews.

Fight Connect TV is the UK and Ireland’s leading combat sports platform dedicated to bringing exclusive access into the underbelly of combat sports — most notably pre-fight and post-fight interviews. These interviews have the potential to be a significant feature in ESBC.

The Implementation Of Post-Fight Interviews: Automated Vs. Manual Response

We could see two different scenarios here. One scenario is a fully automated and scripted interview process. As a result, the whole interview would take place during a cutscene. We’ve seen this in Fight Night Champion in the past. However, we could also see a Q&A interview, giving the player the ability to manually respond to questions. This version would be closer to the press conferences in the Madden and NBA 2K franchises.

Response Types

I can imagine that the manual interview process could be the most engaging for us. Plus, the fight game is well known for some of the craziest interviews. I would love to see many options to deliver our response. For example, responses that are crazy, disrespectful, humble, confident, and passive. Yes, disrespectful happens in the fight game, so I want the good, the bad, and the ugly!

Will Interviews Affect Career Mode?

How could pre-fight or post-fight interviews affect career mode? First, this could turn into an opportunity to further build your character. Second, what if your interview responses anger your next opponents, causing them to fight angry or out of character? Third, could interviews be something that hurt your relationship with a promoter or sponsor? All things considered, It will be interesting to see how deep these interviews become in eSports Boxing Club.

  1. I third the above. This is just way way way too ambitious. Think of all other sports games. None of them have added the amount of content this is claiming. Let alone on it’s debut.
    Does anyone know how long this game has been in development and the size of the team working on it? I agree with the other comments that this game seems crazy ambitious. Maybe if they take the proper amount of time that can deliver on their promise. Probably wishful thinking.
    I'd like to see an indication of where they are in the development process and what the size of their team is.  At the moment it's just press releases to generate news   
    * This is an interesting personal study on marketing and promo. *You’ve heard different “gospels” of promoting, I.e a person needs to see something a certain amount of times to really pay attention, market a product for “X” amount of time and get “X” results, etc. *
    *
    * I think they should’ve started this campaign a bit later. *In my opinion it’s been going too long and is having an adverse affect (effect?). *I’m quite tired of it at this point and no longer highly excited about the information itself. *At this point, we need something in our hands, early tech demo, demo, etc. *That will then give you a bit more time to promote. *
    * Just going by the first raw emotion that I had when I saw this article, it wasn't jubilation, it was anger and I was very dismissive. This is markedly different than the first raw emotions I had with the first few months of information drops (I was excited and interested), so there's definitely a number involved with the human brain and exposure. * I reeled myself in fairly quickly, and said to myself, ok just read it and see whats up, but my first feeling was extreme impatience.
    *Shows over boys, drop the demo.
    Lots of potential here. Really hoping it's the manual style instead of cutscenes. Hopefully it actually affects your fighter's personality, fans, sponsorships, etc. I just want responses to matter and not be repetitive.
    I think the game has become much more ambitious than it was when it was first announced. Made many of you impatient.
    And this was to be "Early Access"* on STEAM last year, meaning that it will be in the form of Alpha or Beta condition. I don't know why they are not communicating much about this. I'm with you guys, something smells here and it ain't good! I hope I am very wrong. Love to see this title be real and succeed.
    I posted this a while ago they don't even answer a question on Twitter even though they're active.
    It's now a one-year delay, with not even a whiff of one Early Access will happen.
    It was supposed to be early access last Q4.
    You know they're ignoring the question because they answer other silly questions about Fighters.
    I don't think this will see the light of day, too good to be true and they're holding everything back we seem pretty much nothing but almost through images or the same beta footage for the past year.
    Hopefully there's a demo because will not be a day one purchase for me since there's lack of information communication and everything else.

    How can it be a day one purchase when you don’t even think it’s ever going to come out ? Y’all need to have patience. The studio got some outside investors and now have time to flesh out the game a lot more.

    I was referring it to being a day one purchase when they or advertising it as if it was coming out very soon.
    If you look at when all the hoopla started.
    Every month they would be detailed now.
    This is what's going on now. It's just silence.
    Everyone who chimed in here agrees we love boxing, and we just wanted a boxing game.
    When you hear crickets for months, they had a chance at virtual E3 so many game shows to show their new work and nothing an old video.
    I think it was a great idea, passionate people, and then funding came in, and now you got to answer people higher up.
    Holiday 2021 will be a year, that has been delayed at least tell people hey it's not coming out till first quarter of 2022.
    Any information would be better than none, can't send out updates every month and then just disappear and expect people to say what's going on here?
    Let's just hope for some news!
