Black And White Filter For The Game
Some images were revealed from the developers about the interface of the show—a picture of Renowned Jamie Sheldon and heavyweight champion Joe Frazier. The picture shows a black and white filter that means while you will use legendary fighters, features of black And White Filter will be available. This is only a very small detail, but boxing game fans would really appreciate this.
Back and front, both the views of the boxer have been revealed. You can see great lighting details behind him and his tattoos very clearly. Not only this, the studio is trying very hard to design clothes for the trainees. They have also expanded their operations from the United Kingdom to the United States. And there are a lot of chances that this would expand some Mexican and American fighters into the game.
Steel City Making Partners
To enhance their game, Steel City also partnered with Grand Enterprise so that they can expand the scope and focus mainly on the part of boxing. Not only this, but they have also partnered with three of the best leading tech companies in the world. They also mentioned that they have balanced and managed many aspects of the gameplay. The game will launch initially on Steam, and at starting, only limited punch styles and moves will be available to the gamers. But as the game will be released, developers will keep adding unique styles and punches in the game. Those who will be licensed to the game will have excess to more punching styles. At starting, the company has decided to keep 25 targeted boxers. Via DLC updates, the eSports Boxing Club game will keep implementing new fighters.
It is also assumed that the sound effects you are going to see in the game will bring a great sensation to your ears. Perhaps we will soon be able to say that boxing games will again be back on gaming consoles and PC.
eSports Boxing Club Release Date
The game, eSports Boxing Club, will be released very soon on steam! If we talk about the eSports Boxing Club release date, it was originally supposed to have two major release dates: A Final release and early access. The early access release of eSports Boxing Club was supposed to go live somewhere between December 2020. The final version of the game was supposed to launch sometime between 2021. But nothing such as the first part of early access was never shown to the audience.
In somewhere between December, Steel City Interactive made a statement on social media. They stated that their original plan was pushed back a little due to some of the factors. Developers said they received a lot more attention than they expected, and they wanted to meet the high expectations set by the people. They also mentioned that they had increased their members in the development team. Being a small studio, it will take time for them to create a high-Efficiency game, and they wanted the audience to wait and play the game.
A confirmed date has still not been confirmed by the developers, but they have confirmed that eSports Boxing Club will for sure have a final release date and an early access release date. They have pushed back the date to take enough time to create the game.
According to eSports Boxing Club FAQ, there is a hope that the game will go live with an early access title very soon (Updated on February 2021). The final release date of the show has not been confirmed by the developers.
