UFC 5 Officially Announced for New Gen Consoles

UFC is back with its 5th entry to the series!

EA Sports has officially announced UFC 5 for new gen consoles.

UFC 5 will be the first new entry in the popular mixed martial arts series for three years. It will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S this coming October 27, 2023.

The game uses the Frostbite Engine for the first time and will be developed by EA Vancouver. It also has the Real Impact System.

“The addition of the Real Impact System and the inclusion of many requested community upgrades provides UFC 5 with definitive title-over-title enhancement,” described EA.

“Experience realistic blow-by-blow damage with hyper-accurate progression as fighter attributes realistically deteriorate over the course of a fight. Feel the power of each impact with more than 64,000 possible facial damage combinations.

“New fluid physics and particle systems elevate blood and sweat inside the world-famous Octagon for a near 1:1 representation of a Pay-Per-View main event, while the implementation of the all-new face animation tool enhances fighter likenesses. Photorealistic fighter likenesses are accentuated with advanced body sculpting and strand-based hair during marquee UFC 5 moments.”

Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition will offer three-day early access to the game and unlocks fight legends like Fedor Emelianenko, Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson.
