When EA Sports UFC 5 releases on October 27, players will notice quite a few changes to gameplay inside the octagon. Insider Gaming has learned that UFC 5 will feature a number of new animations in almost every aspect of a fight.
While fighting, players will notice new animations with ground and pound elbows and body punches. There will even be new spinning attacks and calf kicks to utilize in a fight.
Lastly, there will be a new physics-based hit reaction system that sees fighters react in more authentic ways during a fight.
In one clip sent to Insider Gaming, it shows a fighter falling in an expected way when a hard calf kick is landed on a damaged fighter.
When it launches, UFC 5 will be available exclusively on current-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. In addition to the aforementioned animation updates, the game includes a new online career mode, a new submission system, and a move to the Frostbite engine.
