THQ’s mixed martial arts sim, UFC Undisputed 3, is out in just a few weeks. In preparation for its release on 14th February, there’s a demo going up on the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network Store.
The Xbox Live demo should be up already and we assume the PlayStation Network demo will arrive with the rest of the PSN Store update later today in the US and tomorrow for EU regions.
We’re reliably informed that the gameplay sticks closely to the simulation-like approach of previous titles. This approach, which has possibly narrows the appeal to those willing to learn the intricacies of the control mechanisms, seems to be serving the series well.
The demo pits current UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones against current UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva as well as giving players the chance to play a match between former champions Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (wasn’t he B.A. Barracus?) and Wanderlei Silva.
With the rumours of trouble at THQ, a big hitter like UFC Undisputed could cheer everyone at the company up and give them a decent launchpad for future success.
