Personally, I've been waiting a long time for this: gameplay footage of EA Sports UFC. It's here. Finally.
It doesn't quite show the game itself being played, but it does feature action rendered using the in-game engine from all the cinematic camera angles you might expect in a trailer. I suppose that's about as good as we're going to get for now.
From what I've seen so far, I'm impressed. In terms of the character models and the movesets we're seeing, there's appears to be a real high level of attention in this game. For fans of MMA, and specific fighters, that's going to be paramount.
But still, I'm keen to see an actual match in action. I want to see how it all flows together. As a massive fan of Mixed Martial Arts, this is one of my most anticipated games of year.
A couple of notes from the trailer...
- I had to laugh at the trailer focusing on Roy Nelson and Alastair Overeem when explaining the concepts of getting 'gassed' and using sloppy technique.
- Cain Velasquez dropping a suplex on Mark Hunt? Come on! That's never going to happen.
- Nick Diaz appears in the trailer! Good news that he's in the game.
