In a four-and-a-bit-minute trailer, Electronic Arts has showcased UFC 5, the upcoming fighting game (sports game?) that was revealed just weeks ago. In the breakdown, it was shown how EA’s proprietary Frostbite Engine will make the game look better than anything the UFC team has produced to date.
It was also explained at length how the new dynamic damage and wounding mechanics work, from the realistic portrayal of bloody injuries to the impact certain strikes will have on your fighter’s body and abilities. Overall, it looks fluid, and more visceral than ever before, and it features more immersive and engaging features than any game in the series thus far.
UFC 5 Looks Comprehensive
From all-new referee interactions and super-slow-motion action replays to online draws and a brand-new series of challenges called Fight Week, there’s plenty of innovation this time around for UFC 5.
In the trailer, it was shown that players will be able to play in roles called ‘alter egos’, which see them assume control of iconic fighters in their career-defining moments, and as time goes on, more of these events will be added to the game.
Here’s the trailer:
We reported exclusively on some of the content featured in the trailer, specifically on the host of pre-order bonuses. If you pre-order the deluxe edition of UFC 5 now, you’ll receive early access and three legendary fighters: Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali, and Fedor Emelianenko.
