First EA Sports UFC Gameplay Footage Coming Next Week

Posted August 14th, 2013 at 7:45 am


EA Sports has already revealed they’ll be announcing additional information on how they plan to ease the transition to the next generation at Gamescom during their press briefing on August 20 at 10AM ET/7AM PT. Now they’ve let it be known that the first entry in their UFC franchise, scheduled to release next spring on the Xbox One and PS4, will be making an appearance.

The first look at pre-alpha gameplay will be on display at the event. Though a fairly significant amount of info about the game has already been dispersed including the foundation of eight gameplay features the only footage to date has come from the pre-rendered trailer.

With no current-gen release to compete with EA has the flexibility to promote the game early and often. That same opportunity is present for NBA Live 14 which makes its own presence at Gamescom logical but as of yet remains unconfirmed for the show.

    NBA 2K14 comes out Oct 1st and we’re going to see stuff from UFC which will be out next May or something before 2K14.

    Good for EA though they must feel like UFC is going to be impressing people.

    • Keith.

      With the Tiger Woods game getting kicked to the curb by EA, and with NCAA and NBA Live soon to follow, the UFC game may be all that EA has left next year apart from FIFA and Madden. No wonder they want to get word out about the game sooner rather than later.

      Exactly what I was thinking. How can we see gameplay from a game that doesn’t come out until next Spring before we see some from a game that drops in 6 weeks? 2K is slipping. That or either they’re getting cocky.

    I’ve been waiting for this game for so long. I hate that they dropped the EA MMA servers so early. it didn’t look good, but online features and game play were solid.

      won’t sell waste of time. Every UFC video game has gotten better and does half the sales of the previous version undisputed 3 was a awesome game lost money for THQ ever though they took a few years off.

    I have to say I think it’s disappointing this is a next gen exclusive. I have no plans to purchase a PS4 anytime soon but would like this game. Bit of a shame, but is what it is. I just think EA are missing out on not making this current gen as well.
