Sources: EA Sports UFC 5 Will Release In October, Why It’s Rated M
EA Sports UFC 5 is on the way, and Insider Gaming has the first details about some things players can expect including the game’s release date.
Sources have told Insider Gaming that EA Sports UFC 5 is set to launch on October 27 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. For those who were hoping for it, there isn’t a PC version of the game.
On the cover of the Standard Edition of the game will be Valentina Shevchenko and Alexander Volkanovski. Israel Adesanya will be on the cover of the Deluxe Edition.
What About That Mature Rating?
One thing fans noticed when registration for the game’s beta was opened is that UFC 5 was moving from a T for Teen rating to M for Mature. The reason, sources say, is that it allowed developers to add “more realistic aspects of damage” as well as render damage in greater detail. The game will also feature blood pooling on the canvas, which also played a part in the rating moving to M.
Who’s In EA Sports UFC 5?
Similar to UFC 4, the game will feature the biggest names in the UFC in a roster that will change and grow post-launch. In addition to current UFC fighters, there will be legendary fighters added to the game’s roster.
Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali, and Fedor Emelianenko are all a part of the game’s roster as a pre-order bonus.
