EA has announced that their upcoming MMA title, EA SPORTS UFC 2
, will be launching in March. Alongside the announcement, EA also released a new cinematic trailer that features some of the most memorable moments from recent bouts. Opening with UFC featherweight champion, Conor McGregor, in his championship fight at UFC 194, the trailer showcases the all-new Knockout Physics System, Dynamic Grappling, and Next-Level Submissions.
Fans that pre-order EA SPORTS UFC 2
will also get day one access to two legendary fighters: UFC Hall of Famer Bas Rutten and Japanese MMA legend Kazushi Sakuraba. Those who pre-order will also gain access to a third additional mystery fighter who has yet to be named.
Creative Director Brian Hayes had this to say on the announcements:
Whether fans want to play upcoming cards, recreate the outcome of recent fights, or go back to fight with MMA legends, we’ll help them do that in the most authentic and exciting way ever in an MMA simulation. Our first two pre-order fighters, Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba are perfect additions to what is already the biggest roster ever for an official UFC game. Adding them is huge, and fans are going to go nuts when we reveal who the mystery fighter is. I can’t wait.EA SPORTS UFC 2
