EA Sports quietly announced UFC 3 this week, KOing any hopes of a new Fight Night for the time being. The sequel, due out worldwide on 2nd February, will feature Irish gobshite Conor McGregor on the cover – but don’t tell him we said that as he could probably murder us with his little finger.
The headline new feature in this latest edition is what the publisher’s billing as Real Player Motion, which basically means that the animations are really bloody good. A fresh career mode will see you making important decisions both inside and outside of the Octagon, while there’ll also be new multiplayer modes – including a tournament type option.
There’ll be two versions of the title at launch: a standard $59.99 edition and a ‘Champions Edition’ for $79.99. The latter will be available three days early, and will come with one former UFC champion in Ultimate Team and 20 Premium Packs. There’s a debut trailer embedded above, which is honestly almost as violent as that The Last of Us: Part II cut-scene that got everyone's knickers in a twist.
