    The UFC brand has grown exponentially these past few months due to young new fighters such as Ronda Rousey taking the sport by storm and growing a strong fan base. With the entire brand being at an all time high in popularity, it makes sense to release their latest entry into the UFC series of games fairly soon. Players won't have to wait much longer because EA Sports UFC 2 will be making its way to shelves on March 15th, 2016 for the Xbox One and PS4.

    The original EA Sports UFC game was released back in mid 2014 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This was the first UFC title to be released ever since THQ went out of business, along with their UFC Undisputed series of games. EA quickly acted upon the opportunity and thus a deal was reached between the UFC and EA and production for the first EA Sports UFC began. Because of this, the Fight Night series of boxing games was put on hold by EA since their UFC line of games were more important, thus they took priority.


    EA also took this opportunity to release a new cinematic trailer for the game which can be viewed above. They also announced that there will be an incentive provided to those who pre-order the game. This package consists of 3 extra fighters coming unlocked with the game, two of which were named today. The two fighters are Kazushi Sakuraba and Bas Rutten, the third fighter is being kept as a secret for now but representatives over at EA have claimed that it's someone very exciting. UFC 2 will serve as a nice upgrade to the first game, with new character models, new knockout and physics engines and brand new game modes for players to enjoy. What do you think? Will you be purchasing this game? Leave your thoughts below!

    Used to love playing the UFC series with my buddies back on Xbox 360, The moment you would knock someone out made you feel like you were a god for the next 15-30 seconds.

    I hope they have this on EA Access because I want to try it but I wasn't able to get into the first one because there are so many moves/combos to learn.

    I had no idea these UFC games are the reason why Fight Night was never continued! I loved the original Fight Night but the sequels were just meh so I'm glad they didn't continue them, I would be very happy if they make the first one backwards compatible though.

      Yeah I hope they bring it out on ea access as well I like UFC not to watch as a sport but as a game I like it although once you complete the story with your own guy then it gets boring

    The first one was okay. The fighting mechanics were superb, but that was about it. It quickly became about buying DLC characters, and the game modes were very dry. It got very boring very quickly. Doubt I'll be buying this one, every time I buy another EA Sports game it makes me question why I even bothered.

      I don't know, in comparison to Fight Night I found it a lot better. I found defense to be somewhat easier, which was my biggest struggle in FNs. I found connections on hits were better, but the CPU was ridiculously easy. Online gave me a very good challenge, and I felt that the fighting mechanics for User vs. User matches were completely on point. It was rare that I found glitches, too. It could've just been my experience though. Graphics were on point now you mention it.

      Yeah, the striking isn't that bad, but the grappling and submissions/ground-game is what really kills it for me. I find it a bit funny that you compare it to Fight Night since they both play like boxing games lol. I also find it a bit lacking content-wise, but it seems that to be expected of EA nowadays.

      Yeah, come to think of it (haven't touched it since last summer) floor fighting was a nightmare to handle online. The tiniest bit of lag can easily cause your opponent to dominate you or vice-versa. I definitely felt the same. Especially because I acidentally bought the Bruce Lee pack after already unlocking him haha. It definitely needed at least one more gamemode as I felt there were basically only two. Career and online seasons. What's the point in just playing a regular online H2H unless you're bad and don't want to affect your record?

      Fight Night would be your best bet but they stopped production to work on UFC.

    I'm probably gonna play the trial through EA Access before deciding to buy this.

    Looks dope. I'll be getting it. I enjoy playing the UFC games. I was a savage at 2010 on PS4 my online record was around 120 with less than 10 losses. I remember those days :biggrin: Submission machine!

    Yep I have purchased every ufc game in the past and I won't be passing on this one.
