Electronic Arts Inc. on Tuesday announced EA SPORTS UFC 2 launches on March 15, 2016 in North America, and March 17, 2016 worldwide.
Aside from the release date, EA also released the first gameplay trailer for UFC 2, which features some of the UFC’s biggest stars, including Robbie Lawler, Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm, Conor McGregor, Andrei Arlovski, Jon Jones, and numerous others.
“Whether fans want to play upcoming cards, recreate the outcome of recent fights, or go back to fight with MMA legends, we’ll help them do that in the most authentic and exciting way ever in an MMA simulation,” said Brian Hayes, Creative Director. “Our first two pre-order fighters, Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba are perfect additions to what is already the biggest roster ever for an official UFC game. Adding them is huge, and fans are going to go nuts when we reveal who the mystery fighter is. I can’t wait.”
As Hayes mentioned, fans who pre-order EA SPORTS UFC 2 get day-one access to two legendary fighters: UFC Hall of Famer and three-time King of Pancrase Bas Rutten and Japanese MMA legend Kazushi Sakuraba, with an additional mystery fighter who will be named later.
EA SPORTS UFC 2 is headlined by five new game modes, including KO Mode and UFC Ultimate Team, a revamped Career Mode that lets fans create female fighters for the first time in a UFC game, and Grapple Assist, an integrated visual tool to help players learn and perfect takedowns, ground game transitions, and submissions.
