UFC 4 is the best fighting game ever made
UFC president Dana White is extremely happy with the development of the game and stated that it is the best fighting game ever made.
“EA Sports UFC 4 is the best fighting game ever made,” UFC President Dana White said in a statement.
“Fans can play in the top arenas, as well as in Backyard and Kumite environments. This game allows you to play with the top athletes in UFC history, plus legends like Bruce Lee and boxing champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. It’s crazy how good this game is.”
The Game will also be more realistic than it’s previous versions. Speaking to GameSpot, UFC 4’s creative director Brian Hayes stated that the company has used new technology to make the takedowns look authentic.
“It just makes those facets of the game look more realistic because the animation quality and the responsiveness is better, but then there’s also been a benefit in terms of our approach to the clinch game and takedowns has more intuitive elements into it,” he said.
Players will also be able to feel the difference in quality during the clinch position.
“Previously, the clinch game was one of the least popular,” he said. “We know this from gameplay telemetry, we can see how much time is spent in the clinch. It was one of the least popular places to be because it was less intuitive than the grappling experience on the ground. And now it’s so much quicker to get into. It’s so much easier to feel you’re doing meaningful things, whether it be damage or going for a trip or takedown, or what have you, that we expect it to be a lot more to play a bigger role in from fight to fight.”
The game will be available to play on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X through backwards compatibility.
