EA SPORTS UFC Gameplay Features Will Make You Feel the Fight


The Next Generation of Fighting Begins Spring of 2014 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – June 10, 2013 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced today the gameplay features for EA SPORTSTM UFC®. Powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE technology, feel the fight as the action, emotion, and intensity inside the Octagon™ are brought to life in ways that were never before possible in a video game. The next generation of mixed martial arts fighting begins spring of 2014 when EA SPORTS UFC is released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation®4.


“We are very excited to deliver the most realistic fighting experience ever achieved,” said Dean Richards, General Manager, EA SPORTS UFC.  “With a talented and experienced team at the helm, and powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE, we’ve created a gameplay feature set for EA SPORTS UFC where every fighter, every strike, every takedown and submission will bring you inside the Octagon like no game ever has before.”


“I couldn’t be more excited about the work that the team at EA SPORTS has done on the upcoming UFC game,” said Dana White, President, UFC. “It’s been a great partnership and even though it is still early in development, the game looks amazing. It will be groundbreaking! Fans of all combat sports will love it and have a lot to look forward to in the spring of 2014.”


EA SPORTS UFC Gameplay Features

·         MMAi – A mixed martial artist’s mind is as important as his heart. Every licensed fighter in the game will have changing goals and fight plans, based on their real-life tendencies and each fight situation. Stop their Plan A, and they will adapt to Plan B or C. Down on the scorecards, look for the AI to end the fight with a knockout or a submission. A smarter opponent equals a more challenging and unpredictable fight.


·         Real-Time Exertion – A UFC bout is one of the most physically demanding sports on the planet requiring mixed martial artists to give it their all with every movement. Real-Time Exertion brings each moment of that action to life in your gameplay experience. Through real-time vein popping, skin discoloration, muscle flex, as well as signs of fatigue setting in through the course of each round, you will witness the effort it takes to be one of the best fighters in the world.


·         Fighter Likeness and Facial Animations – EA SPORTS UFC will set a new bar for character likeness and emotion in gaming. Every single licensed fighter in the game has been created from high resolution 3D head and body scans to deliver revolutionary character likeness and authenticity. Powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE, new facial animation technology delivers more expression, emotion and will communicate greater sense of awareness and intelligence in the Octagon.


·         Full Body Deformation – Until now, simulation of physical contact between fighters was limited to bodies that barely made contact with each other; as a result, they looked and behaved like action figures made of plastic rather than elite athletes. The team that revolutionized sports by bringing authentic physics to Fight Night changes the game again with an all-new, full-body deformation system that moves and displaces the fighter’s flesh in real time. For the first time, the strength of every submission and power of every strike will truly make an impression.


·         Precision Movement – MMA is a sport of inches, where every step counts and every movement matters.  Powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE, the Precision Movement locomotion system grounds the fighters, eliminating unrealistic slipping and sliding across the canvas. More realistic physics-driven movement delivers more realistic action as the overall transfer of energy from the ground up delivers more impactful and believable strikes and takedowns.


·         Dynamic Striking – A mixed martial artist uses the environment to his advantage and for the first time in a UFC game, you can too. A dynamic environment allows you to pull off jaw-dropping moves using the Octagon, including roundhouse kicks, superman punches and much more. Combine those abilities with the best striking technology in the industry and that one perfect strike could change the fight.


·         Strategic Submission Battles – To own the belt, you have to be dominant on your feet and on the mat.  EA SPORTS UFC reinvents the ground game to create a battle for position and control that captures the strategy of a submission battle. Like the real sport, in EA SPORTS UFC fighters will work through multiple stages as they work to advance or escape from a fight-ending submission.


·         Real Damage – Every fighter knows that one good shot can ruin your day.  EA SPORTS UFC introduces a non-linear damage system which can result in big damage coming from a single strike. The system produces a greater variety of cuts and contusions that is true-to-life and has never been possible in a simulation fighting game.






Today EA SPORTS announced the first details on the most recent Madden NFL 25 Playbooks,“Connected Franchise.” The next evolution of the most unique career game mode in all of sports gaming introduces new features and legends to the game, as well as the exciting, all-new Owner mode, adding  to  the “be a player” and “be a coach” experiences introduced last year. In support of the announcement, EA SPORTS today released a new video and blog detailing Owner mode, as well as a Connected Franchise Overview.



Madden NFL 25 will allow fans to enjoy total control of their favorite NFL team thanks to the new addition of Owner mode. Take on the persona of Jerry Jones, Jim Irsay or one of the other 30 current owners, or put yourself in the corner office. Fans will have full control over all day-to-day team operations, and can do everything from setting prices on tickets, concessions and more to marketing the team and managing stadium upgrades. Owners can even build a new stadium or relocate the team to either domestic or international locations.



Connected Franchise brings an entirely new user interface which is focused on accessibility, including the new Trade Center and streamlined character creation. Also, a completely retuned progression and legacy score system, along with refined draft, trade and signing logic make for the most enjoyable experience to date.



This year in Connected Franchise marks the inclusion of fan-requested features like 32-team control, offline fantasy draft and a league transaction log. Also, college football fans will be happy to know that they can once again import draft classes from NCAA Football 14.



Connected Franchise comes to life in year two with the addition of several new legendary players and media personalities. Take control of fleet-footed quarterback Randall Cunningham or punishing running back/defender William “the Refrigerator” Perry. Furthermore, bring back the revered and feared linebacker Mike Ditka, or lead a team as Coach Ditka if you prefer. Recreate the legendary careers of these all-time greats, or start fresh on a new team and write your own history. Whether you play as a player, coach or owner; created character, modern superstar or legend expect to hear from the media, as new personalities such as Peter Schrager, Darren Rovell, Matthew Berry and more chime in on the virtual social media feed.



Full details on all the new features are available on the Madden NFL 25 Connected Franchise Playbook page, and fans are encouraged to keep an eye on the site for developer insights, exclusive assets and other unique content.
