Are you ready? Are you ready? THEN LET’S GET IT ON WITH THESE NEW SCREENSHOTS AND VIDEO FOR EA UFC!

If there’s one genre that EA doesn’t get enough love for, it’s fighting games. I absolutely adored the Fight Night series, and I always thought that their jab at the MMA genre a couple of years ago was an unappreciated gem of sweaty man grappling and fisting. According to my press release, it’s all about emotions. Here’s a ctrl+c’ed paragraph from that release so that you can read what I mean:

EA Sports UFC’s advanced capture process goes far beyond the surface to capture unique expressions and reactions, specific to the fighters themselves.
Instead of generic expressions, UFC stars will react just as they would in real life, providing a true range of emotion and credibility to fighters on the EA Sports UFC roster.

Round 2 kicks off soon for EA as they re-enter the Octagon, thanks to THQ tapping out to a Chapter 11 headlock. And hot damn, the game does look like it’s taking full advantage of the new hardware that it’s being developed for. Check it out or suffer my Flying Shooting Star Press of Ultimate Flab:

And a video to cap things off, showing some neat animations:

On a visual level, the game really does look magnificent. And when you’ve got the hardware of an Xbox One and a PlayStation 4 focusing most of it’s attention on the guys in the ring who are trying to P-klap the Redbull out of each other, this is to be expected.

The game will be out later this year, so prepare to get klapped boet.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
