The Big Daddy Update - New Slip Mechanics, New Fighters, New Venues, and More!

Hey fight fans,


This update brings three exciting new fighters, two new venues, a new diagonal dodge, and more. 


Below are the patch notes for the Big Daddy Update, shipped on 5 July 2023 - 11622393



New Fighters


- Carl Frampton added to the game. Frampton joins the Bantamweight and Featherweight divisions. Check out his roster profile here


- Riddick Bowe added to the game. Bowe joins the Heavyweight division. Check out his roster profile here


- Xu Can added to the game. Xu joins the Featherweight and Lightweight divisions. Check out his roster profile here





- Added C7 Hangar, a large aircraft hangar located along the western coast of the United States that has been converted into an events hall.


- Added Falcor Bay, a venue set in the open square of an old cobbled Mediterranean town at sunset.



Gameplay Changes


- Implemented a new movement mechanic to help players close the gap and make inside fighting a more viable option. Fighters can now dodge diagonally forward-right and forward-left, which we hope will make a big impact and improve fighting on the front foot for fighters like Frazier, Porter, and Marciano. You can activate the diagonal dodge by holding the front right bumper and then flicking your left joystick up or down. 


- We’ve enabled stance-switching in online play, which means fighters like Usyk can now switch from Southpaw to Orthodox in online fights. Switch stances by pressing the right arrow on your controller. 


- Improved the stance switching animation. 


- Adjusted how all boxers enter weave blocking to be smoother.


- Expanded trait system to include three separate levels for each trait, increasing a fighter's abilities at each level. You will start to see additional fighter trait level adjustments in updates moving forward.




- Maximum stamina drain for base punches increased by 10%.


- Stamina can no longer drop below 30%.




- Swelling resistance curve has been adjusted to allow for more damage to take place.


- Cut resistance curve has been adjusted to allow for cuts to appear more frequently.


- Increased the damage done at lower stamina values to make fights more engaging.


- Increased Swelling chance by 10%.


- Damage Cap: The maximum damage a single punch can do has been significantly increased, meaning that punches that combine a range of damage multipliers (e.g. power punch, landing in a critical zone, landing a counter punch) can now do more damage than was previously possible. 


- The minimum damage each punch can do has been increased so it is now 10% below base level.


- Power Punch damage increased for hooks and uppercuts.



General Changes


- We’ve added an experimental instant replay system for knockdowns and knockouts. This is currently disabled by default and is only available for offline play. Players can choose to enable instant replays in their game’s video settings. This is the first iteration of replays in Undisputed and we’ll continue to work to improve it for future updates, so please let us know your feedback if you choose to use replays. 


- Updated the boxers’ sweat visual effects when getting hit.


- Adjusted the sweatiness levels across multiple boxers.



AI Changes


- AI on Undisputed difficulty should now feel more aggressive, across all fight styles.
