Electronic Arts and UFC, the mixed martial arts organization and part of TKO Group Holdings, have released EA SPORTS “UFC 5” worldwide on PlayStation5 and Xbox Series X|S. Debuting on the Frostbite Engine for the first time in franchise history, the game features meticulously detailed fighter likenesses and seamless 60 frames-per-second performance.
Damage in “UFC 5” is depicted in visceral detail with true-to-sport accuracy. More than 64,000 possible facial damage combinations, new fluid physics and blood and sweat particle systems alter a fighter’s appearance throughout the fight. With the Real Impact System’s Authentic Damage feature, causing a cut to an opponent’s eye will diminish their striking and blocking accuracy due to compromised vision, and triggering a low calf injury will impede mobility. In “UFC 5” players enter the world-famous Octagon with added strategic depth and mixed-martial-arts (MMA) realism.
“’UFC 5’ has the most advanced features that we’ve ever seen in a combat sports title, and EA has taken every aspect of this game to the next level,” says Tracey Bleczinski, senior vice president, global consumer products, UFC. “With every new iteration of the EA SPORTS UFC franchise, our goal is to create a fun and entertaining game that offers greater realism and a deeper, more engaging UFC experience. EA SPORTS has once again set the standard for combat sports games and delivered a knockout with “UFC 5,” the best version of the game to date.”
“The energy from our passionate fans and our collaboration with UFC helped us achieve generation-advancing MMA gameplay,” says Nate McDonald, lead producer, “UFC 5.” “Frostbite and the Real Impact System are game changers, and when combined with the debuts of Cinematic K.O. Replay, Seamless Submissions, and a real-world powered Fight Week experience, ‘UFC 5’ is as real as it gets.”
Developed by EA Vancouver, “UFC 5” is rated ESRB M (Mature) and PEGI 16, and available on PlayStation5 and Xbox Series X|S.
