No question about it. EA Sports dropped a bombshell on gamers and UFC fans when they dropped EA Sports UFC last year. The team has just teased a working alpha version of a improved version that is likely to be the predecessor to the fan favorite title. Featuring top stars both active and inactive (Chuck Liddell returns) in action. The company has been slowly leaking out photos of fighters weekly, but now we get a animated preview with creative director Brian Hayes, who also looks amazingly computer-generated as well.
Targeted for Spring 2016, EA Sports UFC is previewed on the newly minted next-gen consoles, Xbox One and Playstation 4. Here’s what the guys over at EA let us know in their press release:
