Here’s A Sneak Peek At EA Sports UFC For Next-Gen ConsolesBy: Zach Walton - November 6, 2013
Before THQ started to slowly die earlier this year, the company sold off its THQ license to EA to make some quick cash. At E3, EA Sports announced that it would be bringing a UFC game to the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014, but didn’t offer any real look at the title. While details are still scarce, EA Sports did have a little something to share today.
In what the team calls a “Vision Trailer,” the guys at EA Sports lay out what they want to accomplish with their first UFC title after taking the helm from THQ. As you would expect, their main goal is to make the most realistic UFC title to date by taking advantage of the power afforded to them by next gen consoles.
Unfortunately, the trailer shows us almost no gameplay footage. It instead wants to wax poetic about the future of UFC games without actually showing us that future. We get to see some in-game character models, but that’s about it. EA Sports may not want to show gameplay until their more confident in the product.
After all, EA Sports proved the current generation was a massive step above the PS2-era with Fight Night Round 3. With EA Sports UFC, the developer may be able to capture that same magic we all felt when Fight Night moved to the Xbox 360.[Image: Official EA UK/YouTube]
