EA has officially revealed EA SPORTS UFC® 3 featuring UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, the only UFC athlete to hold UFC titles in two weight classes simultaneously, as the game’s official global cover athlete. For UFC 3 EA introduces a new generation of fighting for fight fans powered by what is called Real Player Motion or RPM Tech, which is a new gameplay animation technology that delivers the most fluid and responsive motion ever seen in the series. UFC 3 also comes with the new G.O.A.T. Career Mode giving player’s choices outside UFC’s world-famous Octagon® matter just as much as their performance inside it. This new mode allows you to strategically promote upcoming fights, create heated rivalries and more on the road to becoming the Greatest of All Time.
More on the Real Player Motion Tech, this new animation technology sets a new bar for motion and responsiveness in the best-looking and now the best-feeling UFC game ever. With over 5,000 new animations captured and rebuilt from the ground up, players can now move, strike, and create seamless combinations in-game. Every punch, kick, block, and counter has been recaptured and rebuilt on cutting-edge animation tech to look and feel life-like and responsive, delivering the most strategic, competitive fighting experience in franchise history.
As mentioned before EA SPORTS UFC 3 also introduces the new G.O.A.T. Career Mode where, for the first time the choices made throughout your career impact your path to greatness. Outside of fights, players will make promotional choices to build hype, gain fans, earn more cash through big contracts and capture the world’s attention. A new in-game social media system allows players to create heated rivalries with other UFC athletes, providing the freedom to take on any type of persona, between cool-headed contender or infamous trash-talker.
EA SPORTS UFC 3 will be available worldwide on February 2, 2018 for PS4 and Xbox One.
