Electronic Arts has tried to fight its way into the octagon with multiple UFC games in recent years. The latest game, EA Sports UFC 4, is out today on PS4 and Xbox One.
This year’s game features commentary from Daniel “DC” Cormier and Jon Anik. Cormier is a former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion. Anik is the former host of ESPN.com’s MMA Live.
What can you expect in this year’s game? Here’s a description from EA:
Players can choose between a variety of modes and ways to play. Rise through the ranks in an enhanced Career Mode experience that includes an all-new fighter evolution system where every choice is integral to shaping their fighter’s skills. Compete to become a world champion in the all-new Blitz Battles or go up against the world’s best in Online World Championships to become the undisputed champion. In addition, take fights to four all-new environments that pay homage to fictional and historical styles of combat sports, including The Kumite and The Backyard.
Inside the Octagon, when players put opponents on the canvas, players will see, hear, and feel the impact of every decisive blow with high impact moments and face-rippling replays. EA Sports Real Player Motion Tech overhauls the art of the clinch and delivers more dynamic takedowns, while new submissions and devastating ground and pound make finishing the fight more exciting than ever. Grapple assist provides more accessible controls on the ground and a refined striking control scheme allows for better access to combinations and positioning.
The game retails for $59.99 on PS4 and Xbox One. A free trial is available with an EA Access subscription on Xbox One.
