Electronic Arts today confirmed EA Sports UFC 2 will launch in March 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The studio revealed the official Ultimate Fighting Championship title would hit stores on March 15th 2016 in North America and then March 17th 2016 worldwide.
In addition to confirming the release date, a brand new cinematic trailer was also released (shown above) featuring some of the biggest moments from recent bouts, showcasing authentic gameplay features, and highlighting new character visuals and signature animations.
“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,” said Brian Hayes, Creative Director.
“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 is headlined by five brand new game modes including KO Mode and UFC Ultimate Team.
For the first time ever in an official UFC game, users will also be able to create female fighters in the revamped Career Mode.
