Game company Electronic Arts officially revealed upcoming sports video game EA Sports UFC 4.
EA revealed the game’s official cover athlete duo, which are UFC welterweight contender Jorge “Gamebred” Masdival and middleweight champion Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya. The upcoming new title will bring a new experience that puts player and their created fighter at the center of the action.
The upcoming game will feature an all-new unified progression system, overhauled takedown and ground mechanics, more fluid clinch-to-strike combinations, and the chance to experience the origins of combat sports in all-new environments. The fourth title will deliver the most polished mixed martial arts experience to date. Pre-ordering the game will get players the bonus of getting world heavyweight boxing champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury on day one.
UFC President Dana White stated:
