EA’s new Boxing Game FACEBREAKER Merges Ego with Stylized Graphics

Posted on 09/02/2008

An all-new intellectual property under the EA SPORTS Freestyle™ brand, FaceBreaker brings back the experience of old-school arcade boxing to a new generation of gamers. Expect the unexpected with FaceBreaker, featuring laugh-out-loud action and over-the-top characters.

FaceBreaker drops you into a world filled with eye-popping stylized graphics and ego wielding characters that get you raring to get your pummel on. Add a little personal motivation to your fights using the custom face generator called Photo Game Face. Gamers use an Xbox LIVE Vision camera or a PLAYSTATION® Eye camera to create a custom boxer by uploading themselves – or someone more notorious – directly to your console. Alternatively, use a regular photo and share your masterpiece with the world in the online Boxer Gallery. Download your created boxer into your game in seconds from EA SPORTS World (, or scour the 30,000 plus boxers that have already been created since the launch of the downloadable demo last month.

Laugh out loud as you pummel your opponent with a barrage of blows to the face and watch in satisfaction as your progress is illustrated by real-time facial deformation. With haymakers, face shots and body blows, wait for the right moment to drop a Breaker to make your presence known. Taunt your adversaries and flaunt your talent, by boxing with one hand behind your back to add ultimate humiliation to your bout. In FaceBreaker, it just feels good to rearrange your opponent’s face.

Editorial Assets:

I’ve included these links to download a number of images & screenshots from the show, as well as five videos. Through the Celebrity Fights link, you’ll find video of Kim Kardashian vs. Peter Moore, and The Hills’ Spencer Pratt vs. Heidi Montag. The 3 audition tapes show the main characters of FaceBreaker trying out for the cameras. I encourage you to include these videos with your post, and upload them to your favorite file sharing site.
