Fight Night steps back into ring

Fifth instalment ready to rumble

A new instalment of EA Sports's genre-defining boxing simulation has been announced for release sometime in 2011.

Fight Night Champion does more than ditch the "round" moniker that previous instalments proudly touted, according to producer Brian Hayes promises "the full meal deal with desert and a toy. The whole enchilada. All that and a bag."

IGN spoke with Hayes following the game's announcement, managing to extract scant details about gameplay. The development team is gunning for 60-65 fighters, expanded online features, and a new "Full Spectrum Punch Control" will be introduced.

Fight Night Champion will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.
