EA Sports UFC Xbox One

EA Sports UFC may not necessarily have been the best game possible at launch, but at least EA Sports is demonstrating a commitment to supporting the game post launch and trying to realize their original vision. Today, they rolled out a brand new update- on the content side, the game adds three new fighters (Dillashaw, Takeya Mizugaki & Tyron Woodley), but more importantly, there is a massive list of fixes the game adds as well.

The full list is:

New & Updated Content

  • Addition of 3 new fighters. 2 in Bantamweight: TJ Dillashaw, Takeya Mizugaki and 1 at Welterweight: Tyron Woodley.
  • Updates to fighter records
  • Update TJ Dillashaw to be Bantamweight Champion in Career and default fighter in Fight Now
  • Updated Alexander Gustafsson’s tattoo
  • Gameplay – Added Finish the Fight. Allowing users to land extra shots as a fighter gets knocked out
  • Gameplay – Added sprawls when defending power takedowns
  • Gameplay – Added the ability to touch gloves at the start of every round


  • Added animation to submissive fighter when attempting full guard sweep to a postured opponent in full guard.
  • Added the ability to break out of cage clinch by pressing L3 button
  • Fixed an exploit where dominant fighter in full mount could sneak in punches from posturing up.
  • Fix for arm alignment issue for certain fighters in full mount
  • Removed power takedowns and side control sweeps from fighters that should not have them.
  • Stamina and damage changes are now relative to accelerated clock.
  • Stamina no longer regenerates if user holds block.
  • User takes a larger stamina penalty when hit while weak blocking.
  • Dominant fighter in full guard has larger window to reverse the full guard sweep to mount. Animation sweep takes longer.
  • Fixed rare submission issue where gates could be skipped.
  • Fixed issues with framerate during gameplay.
  • Fixed rare issue with loss of takedown functionality after denying cage clinch.
  • Fixed issues with referee standup during TKOs and submissions.
  • Fixed various physics issues.
  • Fixed various animation issues


  • Update to Renan Barao Bruce Buffer commentary


  • Opened Red Belt division in Championships
  • Opened Grand Prix Invitational tournament in Championships
  • Fix to online leaderboard stats displaying incorrectly in comparison to FighterNet profile
  • Fix to online disconnects in tournaments resetting user’s fighter
  • Fix to online disconnects  not reporting the game and no DNF given
  • Fixed issue with uploading highlight reels when game is suspended


  • Added a EULA tile in the Extras menu
  • Update to filtering of tutorial videos based on Language settings
  • Fix to Origin flow in unsupported language displaying unsupported text
  • Decreased difficulty of initial fighter after tutorials. User is unable to get knocked down during standup.
  • Fixed Create-a-Fighter icons for hates and tattoos
  • Fixed rare issue with incorrect Post fight NIS playing
  • Fixed rare crash that occurred during replays
  • Fixed issue with Game Face fighters having a seam around neck

So EA should be commended for updating the fighter in response to the criticism and the feedback… but then again, if they had just launched a not-broken game to begin with, maybe they wouldn’t have had to issue such a massive fix to begin with. With games like Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, SimCity, and now UFC, this seems to slowly be becoming a trend for EA, and I can’t say I like it.
