Hi everyone back with another pre release you may want to keep an eye out for – EA Sports UFC. Built by the team who created the critically acclaimed Fight Night Series, comes the first major EA Sports collaboration in over 10 years. I can’t wait to try out this title as both my boyfriend and I are big UFC fans – so I envision many hours spent battling for dominance.
The game play is pretty amazing with a lot of attention paid to the smallest details. From the way the fighters feet press into the mat, to the way the flesh on there bodies ripples from the impact of the blows. Realism is a huge factor i this game. If your battling an opponent into submission, they will fight and struggle against you just like in a real match. You will see there muscles tighten and there skin start to flush as the urgency grows. Also another feature which adds a level of realism is real time exertion. If you assign to much energy to the earlier rounds you will be left worn out in the later stages of play. Just like in real life this will affect your performance, leaving your movements sloppy and hits significantly weakened. EA Sports UFC also doesn’t rely on damage being logged in steady increments, causing progressive detriment to your fighter. One strategically placed blow can be devastating, leaving a fighter with open wounds and realistic bruising.
EA Sport UFC also allows you to use your environment to your advantage, which results in some crazy moves. These include things like superman punches and roundhouse kicks, all while using the octagon as leverage. The fighters in the game were all created from a series of high resolution 3D head and body scans, giving a revolutionary likeness. Alongside new facial animation technology, which delivers a much more realistic and diverse catalog of emotions and expressions.
Another thing I love about this game is the fact you can unlock Bruce Lee as a playable character! That’s another big plus for me as I’m a huge Bruce Lee fan. He can be unlocked in one of two ways – if you purchase EA Sports UFC on pre order, he will be available as a playable character from day one. The second option is to claim the belt and beat career mode gaining Bruce as a reward.
This is definitely a game I’m eager to experience. I can see Dan and I loosing a day or two to this title, accompanied by a huge take away pizza. So once again if you haven’t seen any footage from the game check out the trailer/gameplay below. EA Sports UFC is set for release in the USA on the 17th June closely followed by the UK release on the 20th June, and will be available on Playstation 4 and Xbox one.
