The EA Sports UFC series will release its third installment on February 2 of next year with EA Sports UFC 3 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the publisher announced today alongside its new trailer. And its cover star? None other than Conor McGregor. The title highlights the “G.O.A.T. Career Mode,” a choice-based story that allows players to build a following and land fight contracts like a real fighter. EA is also boasting two multiplayer modes for a more pick-up-and-play approach to the gameplay.
They are “Stand & Bang,” and a “Submission Showdown” to go along with the Knockout Mode introduced in 2016’s EA Sports UFC 2. UFC 3 will also feature a tournament akin to a “survival mode” usually found in fighters, where the players fight through multiple rounds to victory, with fatigue and injury accruing through each bout.
Check out the trailer above and leave your thoughts below.
UFC 3. Become the GOAT inside and outside the Octagon.
