We've seen CG trailers for EA's new UFC game, but nothing concrete in terms of in-game assets. As a fan of UFC and someone heavily anticipating this game, I found that a little worrying, but today EA has released the our first look at actual in-game renders of the UFC's roster, and surprise surprise it looks kinda spiffy.
Given that they attended the EA conference alongside UFC President Dana White, Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones and Lightwight champ Benson Henderson were among the first to get spotlighted. That was fairly predictable.
But, perhaps more interestingly, EA also released a render of retired fighter Chuck Liddell — a former champion and now UFC hall of famer. I can only assume this is confirmation that EA will be including a host of retired 'legend' type fighters in the game's roster. This is good news.
My guess? We'll be seeing fighters like Chuck Lidell, Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie alongside fighters in the current UFC roster.
Sounds good to me.
