UFC Undisputed 2010 requires code to play online (Update)

7:30 PM on 05.19.2010 // Samit Sarkar

Ubisoft isn't the only publisher that's implementing a program similar to Electronic Arts and their EA Sports Online Pass. According to sports gaming blog Pastapadre, THQ is beating EA to the punch by two weeks. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, which launches on June 8th, will be the first EA Sports game under the EA Sports Online Pass. But THQ's UFC Undisputed 2010, due out next Tuesday, May 25th, will also come with a one-time-use code on the back of the game's instruction manual, and players will need to type in the code if they want to play the game online (as you can see above).

It's essentially the same idea as the EA Sports Online Pass. If you buy UFC 2010 used or rent it, you'll be prompted to purchase a code from the Xbox Live Marketplace or the PlayStation Store. We've pinged THQ for comment, since there's no word yet on how much a code will cost, or if there will be any sort of free trial period (like the 7-day trial that the Online Pass offers). As soon as we hear back, we'll update this story.

I guess we're going to have to get used to this stuff.

Confirmed: UFC 2010 Requires Code for Online Play [Pastapadre]

[Update: We've just received an official response from THQ; you can check out the full statement after the jump. Here's the takeaway: codes for non-new buyers will cost $5 (400 Microsoft Points). There's no mention of a trial period, so it looks like renters will have to pony up to try the game online.]

The official statement from THQ regarding online play in UFC Undisputed 2010:

THQ is delivering a truly unmatched online gaming experience for fans of UFC and across all fighting games in general. The main enhancement of UFC Undisputed 2010’s premium online content is the new “Fight Camp Mode” in which players can assemble ranks of up to 40 people and train together. This is a significant value-add to the game as players can continually improve their skills by training with their friends and bringing teams of MMA specialists together.

This multiplayer content for UFC Undisputed 2010 will be available via a one-time code included with the game at purchase. Codes for accessing the content will be available for second-time buyers for an additional $5.

Details for acquiring the codes and how this will work will be available via the UFC community site.

Well, there you have it. Keep your eyes on the UFC Undisputed community site for further details.

The Banner Saga is pretty much a work of art. It's so incredibly pretty. I wonder why there aren't more games that use such a striking art style? The only other game with a similar-ish art style that comes to my mind is Cuphead.

Why is there so much love for Pokemon, when only Digimon can you offer you the One True Waifumon?

Why is steam having yet another sale? At this point they'd be better just reducing the prices of the games year-round, instead of having the same games at the same discounted prices every 2 months.

Trubbish is the best Pokemon because he's basically a pile of trash.

CONTROVERSY: I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Black right now and the truth of the matter is that Ninja Gaiden 2 is the better game. The combat is just so much better, and the pacing is as well. NGB is still a 10/10 to me though. NGB's combat is just alot slower

Since I was a lad who actually followed Pokemon, Scyther was green and sharp and cut his way to my little heart, where he remains today.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!
