10 Things We Learned From The EA UFC 4 Reveal
At Saturday's UFC 251 from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, fans were treated to the first glimpse of the newest instalment in EA's acclaimed UFC video game franchise.
Following on from the beloved Undisputed series published by the now-defunct THQ that had laid a pretty comprehensive template of what an MMA game should be, EA had a pretty tough act to follow when it acquired the rights to the series in 2012. To make matters worse, just a couple years earlier notoriously outspoken UFC head honcho Dana White had made his less-than-complimentary feelings about the gaming giant clear after EA initially refused to create a game based on professional cage fighting.
These days though, the UFC game series has gone from strength to strength, minus some fair criticisms, with EA UFC 3, in particular, being hailed as one of the best combat sports video games ever.
So, with all that in mind, it's clear that EA's newest Ultimate Fighting instalment has a tough act to follow, and while we haven't yet seen everything the new game has to offer, Saturday's trailer has understandably got fans of the series excited with where the franchise is headed.
