EA Sports UFC Coming to Mobile

Posted February 25th, 2015 at 9:00 am


EA Sports announced yesterday that UFC is coming to iOS and Android in the near future. The game is already available in a few regions including Canada, going out early there as a tactic EA has utilized with mobile games in the past to gather feedback and make some updates before rolling them out in the US and other larger territories. 

EA Sports UFC will be free-to-play though the monetization structure has not been completely detailed. It’s notable however that it does not adapt an Ultimate Team model (involving buying/earning/collecting fighters) which has proven successful for the company with mobile editions of Madden and FIFA. For those that find MMA games complicated on controllers it’ll be interesting to see how actions are handled on phones and tablets. It’s also a bad look to have Jon Jones as the promotional face of the game but the company is likely still locked into their contract with him that began with the release of EA UFC on consoles last June.
