With an exclusive multi-year, multi-product partnership, the UFC and EA Sports plan on releasing a video game about the MMA promotion in the next 12 months, Xbox officials announced on Tuesday.
EA Sports Executive Vice President Andrew Wilson said during the Xbox Reveal broadcast that the new game will be one of four sports games released on the new Xbox gaming system called Xbox One.
The game will be the fourth installment in the UFC video game series, which was preceded by UFC Undisputed 2009, UFC Undisputed 2010 and UFC Undisputed 3.
The Xbox Reveal broadcast included video of the soon-to-be-released game, as well as gameplay footage featuring UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and Anthony Pettis, which offered a look into the game’s realism (watch video below).
The game, like all EA Sports games on the Xbox One, will be powered by the EA Sports Ignite engine, which will offer revolutionary movement and a gaming experience beyond what players have seen in previous releases, according to Wilson.
The UFC EA Sports game is also expected to be out on the Sony PlayStation.
