It’s time! To talk about DLC.
THQ anncouned today that they will offer a Season Pass for those who wish to pre-order select downloable content for UFC Undisputed 3 in one shot. The season pass will cost 1360 MS Points or $16.99 on PS3, and will offer a wide variety of content from new fighters to unlocking in-game content early.
If you do the math it would work out to be 1720 MS Points for the entire package, so you save 360 Pts buying them all at once, but is the content worth it? I would probably buy the new fighter packs, and I already signed up for the free Overeem DLC, but I’m not sure I would really care about the Ultimate Upsets or Mixed Bag packs. There is also some free DLC being released on launch day which is also listed below.
See the content included below so you can decide for yourself.
Fighter Packs – Fight of the Night and International Fighters packs include fighters Joe Lauzon, Rory MacDonald, Charles Oliveira and Sam Stout, Anthony Johnson (he was cut recently from the UFC, but still made the game), “The Korean Zombie” Jung Chan-Sung, England’s John Hathaway, Germany’s Pascal Kraus, Australia’s Kyle Noke and Italian Alessio Sakara.
