Punch Club 2 starts punching its weight

We first joined the Punch Club back in 2017, but now it’s time to Fast Forward with the release of Punch Club 2. Up for some cyberpunk-styled boxing?

Punch Club 2 goes cyberpunk

The next iteration of the fighter management game, Punch Club 2: Fast Forward will see players on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC get in the ring in hope of becoming a champion fighter. They’ll be able to do so for a small £16.74 fee too. 

Building on the original Punch Club, Punch Club 2: Fast Forward tasks you with keeping an eye on every aspect of a fighter’s life. You’ll need to consider their sleep patterns, the food they eat, the gym work that they take in and more. But of course, this is future boxing and there are ways to get around the boring moments, utilising the power of Neuro-training should you feel the need. 

With a rich story kicking around in the background, Punch Club 2: Fast Forward promises to allow for multiple paths of play. In fact, it’s the choices you make which will determine how this one rolls – for good and bad. There’s a new levelling and progression system to hand as well, whilst the old ‘stat decay’ system is gone. 

Ready to pull the punches?

That’s not to say there aren’t a host of key features though. Punch Club 2: Fast Forward will bring focus to all of the following…

  • Become a Champion Fighter – Punch, kick and cheat your way through if you want. Becoming the best damn fighter ain’t easy; it takes time, dedication, dollars, and training! Increase your stats and techniques, plan your matches, and create your own incredibly awesome school of fighting!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
