No matter how good a fighting/wrestling game may have been, very few actually make you feel like you are in the middle of the match. From what this latest trailer shows, it seems as if EA Sports UFC is on track to be the first game to truly make players feel like they are in the octagon.
In this game, when characters make physical contact they act and react accordingly. Flesh will actually contort when hit and foot placement will influence how hard punches are. Fighters will become fatigued as the match continues, making it wise to not use up all of your energy in the beginning. As the match progresses, every cut and bruise received will remain on the character models.
It’s interesting with all of this talk about next gen graphics how this title is going under the radar. There is some really impressive stuff going on here that could translate to other titles as well.
EA Sports UFC will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this spring.
