Creed: Rise to Glory is a 2018 VR boxing game developed and published by Survios. Based on the Rocky franchise and the Creed spin-off series, the game was originally released on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift on PC, as well as the PlayStation VR for PS4. It was later re-released on PlayStation VR2 for PS5.
Considering how poorly many boxing games do with critics, Creed: Rise to Glory was actually received pretty well. The game went on to receive a 73 on Metacritic, receiving praise for its engaging online battles but facing criticism for its short single-player length.
Creed: Rise to Glory Premise
The gameplay in Creed: Rise to Glory puts players in the ring in an extremely realistic boxing simulation. While the graphics style might be cartoony, the gameplay certainly isn’t. With Phantom Melee Technology, the game captures the essence of throwing and receiving punches in the virtual reality space.
The game has a few different modes that provide a good amount of variety in Creed: Rise to Glory. The Career mode lets you play as Adonis Creed as he rises through the ranks and develops his reputation in the boxing world. Freeplay allows you to face off against any boxer in the game, all pulled from the Rocky movies. There’s even a Training mode, where you can take part in minigames to hone your skills in the ring.
All of this would be a solid offering in any boxing game. However, the virtual reality twist makes it feel as though you’re really in the ring, feeling every punch.
Creed: Rise to Glory Main Characters
The cast of Creed: Rise to Glory is extremely similar to that of the Creed films. It’s all of your favorite characters that you recognize from the movies, brought to life in the VR realm. There’s definitely something nostalgic about seeing Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky in person, after first appearing on the big screen all the way back in 1976.
Despite some characters playing a big role, there are two in Creed: Rise to Glory that are far more important than anyone else. These are:
- Adonis Creed: Creed: Rise to Glory puts you in the shoes of Adonis Creed, son of Apollo Creed, following him on his, well, rise to glory. Obviously. He works his way through the lower levels of boxing, before cementing himself as the best on the planet.
- Rocky Balboa: Throughout the game, Rocky Balboa returns as a mentor to Adonis Creed, much like he does in the movies. He’s a little far past his expiry date to jump into the ring himself, but he has plenty of wisdom to offer Adonis throughout his boxing journey.
Creed: Rise to Glory Titles in the Series
As a genre, boxing games have generally struggled to find their place in the gaming industry. There are a few legendary titles, notably Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! for the NES, but equally, there are also plenty of terrible releases.
Rocky is one of the most iconic boxing franchises of all time, so it makes sense that a few attempts have been made over the years to translate it to the medium of video games. However, until Creed: Rise to Glory, previous attempts generally fell flat. Unfortunately, a lot of them often resembled cheap cash-ins that looked to capitalize on the Rocky name.

Creed: Rise to Glory Cheat Codes
Creed: Rise to Glory is just one of those games you won’t find cheat codes for. As a VR game, they’d be particularly hard to enter, and due to the game’s short length, you don’t really need them.
There are many players in the online portion of the game who exploit the ability to spam punches at an insane rate, but that doesn’t quite fall into the category of cheat codes.

Creed: Rise to Glory Cheat Code FAQs
How Do You Make Yourself Unhittable in Creed: Rise to Glory?
While there are no cheat codes for the game, with some practice you can make yourself near unhittable in Creed: Rise to Glory.
- First things first, crouch down just before the fight begins, and recalibrate your height.
- After recalibration of your position is complete, stand back up. Your in-game character will be MUCH taller, and your opponents will struggle to hit your face.
- Now, when you hold your gloves in front of your chest, you’ll be almost un-hittable in-game. All you have to do then is counter the attacks to win every fight while taking no damage.
This technique works on any difficulty, making the Champion mode a breeze.
Are There Mods For Creed: Rise to Glory?
Sort of. On Nexus Mods where most games host their mods, there is just a single mod for Creed: Rise to Glory. The mod is called Eat Lighting, which makes a few changes to gameplay in the Freeplay mode. These are:
- No stamina drain from punching
- AI is more aggressive in attacking and dodging
- Body punches do 50% more damage
- Players and opponents are both given more HP to make fights last longer
It’s a small list of gameplay changes, and is something you might expect to see from cheat codes. As you might expect, this mod is only available on the PC version of the game.
