EA SPORTS UFC – A New Bar for Fighter Likeness

Posted June 11th at 12:00am.

EA SPORTS UFC will set a new bar for character likeness and emotion in gaming. Every single licensed fighter in the game has been created from high resolution 3D head and body scans to deliver revolutionary character likeness and authenticity. Powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE, new facial animation technology delivers more expression, emotion and will communicate greater sense of awareness and intelligence in the Octagon.

Here are the first look UFC Fighter renders that were revealed during EA’s E3 Press Conference:

From Colorado Springs, Colorado with a record of 18-2-0, we’re excited to have UFC Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson be one of the first fighters revealed for the EA SPORTS UFC Fighter Roster. Named the UFC’s 2012 Fighter of the Year, Henderson is one of the most exciting fighters in all of MMA.

When Jon ‘Bones’ Jones beat Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua to win the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship, he became the youngest champion in UFC history. Five title defenses later, Jones is one of the biggest stars in the UFC and we’re proud to welcome him to the EA SPORTS UFC Fighter Roster.

The epitome of a UFC ‘Hall of famer’, Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell has the second most career knockouts in UFC history, behind only Anderson Silva. Liddell held the Light Heavyweight Championship from April 2005 to May 2007 and is largely considered to be the greatest fighter in that weight class of all-time. We’re honored to have a legend like Chuck Liddell join the EA SPORTS UFC Fighter Roster.
