UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jon “Bones” Jones spoke with EA Sports host Lauren Berlingeri, specifically about how he, as a champion of the sport, feeds off of the energy of the crowd. EA Sports UFC will be released on upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release.
Berlingeri speaks to how, in the game, the energy of the crowd will have a direct influence on your fighters energy and moral. The champion, however, has a different outlook. When he’s in the cage, he prefers to focus on himself and his opponent, nothing else. He feels there will always be fans on their feet and screaming, no matter what – sometimes it will be positive, sometimes it will be negative. But what really matters are you, the effort you’ve put in, and your opponent.
UFC will incorporate EA’s ignite engine, and will utilize artificial intelligence that will adapt to changes in player strategies mid-fight. The hope is that this intuitive system will make the fighting experience as realistic as possible.
EA Sports UFC will release May 5, 2014 across PS4 and Xbox One
