The Career Mode and Character Creator Update

Hey fight fans,


Our long-awaited 7th and final update in early access is here and it’s a big one: bringing you Career Mode, Character Creator, Fighter Select Customisation and much more. 


Below are the patch notes for the update, shipped on 12 February 2024 - 13417020.



Career Mode


Introducing Undisputed Career Mode, an engaging and authentic boxing experience where you’re the master of your own journey. Fight for money or fame, go for knockouts or dominate the scorecards, or simply rise through the ranks in any way you can. 


- Use our new character creator to create your own fighter or play through career mode with one of the 70+ licensed fighters available in the game! 


- Humble beginnings: begin your career journey by jumping straight into an amateur tournament which will inform how you start your pro journey and rank on the world stage. 


- Assemble a team: choose your own Coach, Cutman, and Manager. Your decisions here will impact various aspects of your career from which Stats and Traits you can level up to your ability to negotiate the best deals for your fighter. Featuring lots of licensed legends of the boxing world from Brian ‘BoMac’ McIntyre to Jacob ‘Stitch’ Duran. 


- Own your path: once you’ve assembled your team it’s time to get to fighting. Your team will come to you with fight offers but whether you accept their offer is up to you. Forge your own path by carefully choosing your opponents and using the fight negotiation to get the best deal you can for your fighter.


- Stay in shape: remember to balance your Fight Camp activities – with choices around growing your fame, maintaining weight, or being fight ready you’ll have to carefully balance your Fight Camp choices to get the best outcome for your fighter.


- Rise through the ranks: carefully climb your way to the top of the world rankings and pick up national and continental belts on your way to winning a world title, unifying, and eventually becoming Undisputed! Featuring licensed belts from the WBC, WBO, and IBF, as well as our very own SCI belt.

AI Changes


- Differentiated the AI behaviour of the 4 core archetypes (Boxer Puncher, Slugger, Swarmer, Outside Fighter) to reflect real-life styles more accurately.


- Added a range of AI strategies to the generated characters within career mode. The generated characters will vary across things like levels of aggression, preferred punch types, preferred combos, etc.
