EA SPORTS UFC looks great

posted in: Game News | 0

EA SPORTS UFC is being developed by the same studio responsible for making simulation boxing fun. The Fight Night series of boxing games were phenomenal and if their attention to visual detail also translates to gameplay, we’re in for a treat.

My only gripe against EA SPORTS UFC thus far (aside from the silly title) is the decision to render at 30 FPS. It would have been even more impressive if they managed to make it look great and render at a full 60 FPS.

EA SPORTS UFC is slated for a spring 2014 release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
