During a recent hands-on with THQ’s upcoming UFC Undisputed
3, the developers talked a little bit about how the game’s menus have been
entirely redesigned. Instead of having the menu icons appear over generic
wallpapers, this iteration of the fighting franchise will pan over different
high-resolution pictures of fighters. While the game will, obviously, ship with
a number of different backgrounds, THQ says that it plans to offer additional
image packs after launch, which will be made available as downloadable content.

Different images packs will be available, including
highlights from big fights updated after UFC PPV fights. They also mentioned
that there will be a “Ring girl pack” that they expect will be their best
seller – which sounds about right.
We reached out to THQ for more information and pricing, but
they didn’t offer any additional information. Instead, a representative told us
that “we can confirm that there will be various DLC content available when the
game is released on 2/14. We can’t really comments on the prices or other
details.” This could technically be anything, though it likely means that the game
fill feature pre-order bonuses, retailer-exclusive gifts, or, as was the case
with the last game, an online pass.
