Also bones breaking. Fun.
EA showcased a live action trailer on the Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC to hype the upcoming next generation title. If that weren’t enough, Bruce Buffer came to the stage at the press conference to introduce EA Sports head Andrew Wilson and UFC Europe head Gary Cook. Thankfully, no fighters were on stage to frighten the crowd.
They then showcased UFC, which used the Ignite Engine to make the fighters in game feel more like actual people, rather action figures. The footage showed Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones battling Alexander Gustaffson and displayed the Full Body Deformation and Real-time Exertion systems that will have an effect on play. As of now, it seems that UFC is a ways off from release (debuted in Spring 2014) but we like what we see so far.
UFC will be heading to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Stick around for more updates from Gamescom 2013, especially with Sony’s presser up next at 10 AM PST.
