    Default Ring Champion - New Boxing Game in Development

    Hi all!

    This is a post to let you boxing fans know that we are currently developing Ring Champion - a realistic boxing simulation for PC (Steam), XboxONE and PS4.

    So, a little about us: We are an Indie Development Studio based in Sheffield, England, coming from a very boxing rich environment! We also have the former British and European champion - Ryan Rhodes as our local technical boxing consultant.

    If you have any specific requests in terms of what you would like to see in your ideal boxing game, feel free to let us know! we will be releasing some footage and a trailer soon !.

    If you would like to keep up to date on progress, please follow our twitter account which has just been created, so will be posting some content in the coming weeks. Twitter: SteelCityInteractive

    Cheers Ash.

    Great to see UK based gaming companies with our track record in the sector.

    Career mode. Fighter specific special moves. Training mode. Ability to select ringwalk music from your play list. Legends era specific mode with eras rules (15 rounds etc).

    Cheers a boxing game is long overdue for the ps4.

    I've played them all going back 30 years - jesus thats a long time.

    So in no particular order :-

    - career mode with ability to create own fighter and take him online
    - different fight styles and weight classes
    - Training
    - real fighters not crucial if the gameplay is good enough and has the good fictional characters (eg Isaac Frost, the main fighters in Victory Boxing in late 90s on PS1)
    - CRUCIAL for me is the existence of a one punch knockout. Never seen this in a game before or since Knockout Kings 2001. You could turn a fight with one punch late on or even win a fight with first punch (I'll never forget kayoing my brother who was using Hagler just 6 seconds into a fight - he was out cold with no response at all to button bashing to try get up). Ok it shouldn't happen all the time but it's a big part of the sport and needs to be in there. All games since, though they do have flash knockdowns, have allowed you to get up easily at least twice then becomes a skill to get up beyond that. I had a mate on last Fight Night champion who had perfected getting up and you knew he could even get up from a 5th knockdown. I struggled on the 3rd. Fair play but that's not realism !!


    Basically its all in the gameplay !

    Fight Night Champion does have one punch KO's but they are incredibly rare, I still play the game weekly and I've only had maybe 3 in the 10 years that I've been playing it.

    as in first time you'd knocked someone down and they couldn't even move ? Even so 3 in 10 years is not good enough. It will be a difficult one to get right for sure.

    Not sure how old you are but if you ever played Barbarian on the Spectrum and kept getting taken out by someone you were dominating but they kept attempting the head chop till they got you, you will know what I mean !

    really wish I'd kept my PS3 for this game alone. Never thought we'd be waiting this long for a game.

    Yeah one punch and the fight is over without a count, one happened when I sparked my mate with the very first punch of the fight when we were playing against each other, he was fucking livid.

    I only really started playing the boxing games when knockout kings came out.

    Only reason I still have a PS3 is fight night champion.saying that the mate that I one punch KO'd borrowed my console a few weeks back just so he could play it again, I've gotta get it back off him soon.
