Electronic Arts Inc. on Tuesday unleashed the new EA Sports UFC video game across North America. It will be available in European outlets on June 20. The game is available for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gaming systems.
EA Sports UFC has been built from the ground up by Electronic Arts including a new gaming engine. Players will receive free roster updates including the addition of new and upcoming fighters.
Not only that, but EA Sports UFC includes Bruce Lee, the “Father of Mixed Martial Arts,” as an unlockable fighter in the game. When fans beat career mode on pro difficulty or higher, they will unlock the legend and can test his legacy against the best of the best in the UFC across four different weight classes.
“The UFC is the first new major sports league partnership for EA Sports in over a decade and from day one, our team was committed to creating the first next generation sports game,” said Dean Richards, General Manager, EA Sports UFC. “We aimed to capture almost every detail of the sport, from the way the fighters look to how they move to how they fight in the Octagon. I couldn’t be more proud of the final product and can’t wait for our fans to get their hands on it.”
“It was a huge day for the UFC and for fight fans when we signed our partnership with Electronic Arts two years ago,” said UFC president Dana White. “Now people all around the world will be able to experience our sport through a whole new generation of video games. EA Sports UFC looks incredible and we are extremely excited for people to see and play the game.”
