EA SPORTS UFC 5 is the most realistic and immersive MMA game ever created, powered by the Frostbite engine. It delivers unprecedented fighter likenesses, stunning visuals, and fluid gameplay.
Real Impact System
The all-new Real Impact System brings the intensity and strategy of a fight to life. Cuts and strikes absorbed can affect mobility, defense, stamina, and more. Take too much damage, and the all-new Doctor’s Checks and Stoppages feature may come into play, replicating the realism of potential fight progressions with true-to-sport strategic considerations.
For example, if you cut your opponent near their eye, they may have impaired vision and take more damage on that side. If you bust their nose, they may have difficulty breathing and their stamina recovery may be slowed. If you take too many low calf kicks, you may start to limp with related mobility decline.
This authentic damage adds a whole new layer of strategic possibilities to the fight. Players must now be more mindful of their own defense and the damage they are taking, as well as the impact their strikes are having on their opponent.
Seamless Submissions makes grappling feel more fluid and realistic than ever before. The mini-games have been removed, and the animations have been sped up, making submissions more accessible to beginners and more rewarding for veterans.
In previous UFC games, submissions were often executed through a series of mini-games. This could be frustrating for new players, who often struggled to learn the timing and button combinations required to pull off successful submissions.
Seamless Submissions removes the need for mini-games, making submissions more intuitive and accessible. Players must now use a combination of joystick and button inputs to control their fighter’s movements and submit their opponent.
This new system is more rewarding for experienced players as well, as it allows them to use their knowledge of grappling and submission techniques to their advantage.
Cinematic K.O. Replays
Harnessing the power of Frostbite, players can now rewatch their finishing blows in stunning clarity. Captured in super slow motion with cinematic camera angles and lighting, the impact of fight-ending shots increases authenticity as well as the entertainment spectacle.
Cinematic K.O. Replays are a great way to relive your most epic victories and share them with your friends. They also provide a valuable learning opportunity, as players can analyze their technique and identify areas for improvement.
Fight Week Challenges
Every week, players will have access to limited-time Fight Week Challenges inspired by real-world UFC events. These challenges give players the opportunity to unlock rewards, including new Alter Egos, created fighter Vanity Items, player profile customization assets, and fighter emotes.
Fight Week Challenges are a great way to stay engaged with the game and earn new rewards. They also provide a way for players to test their skills against other players from around the world.
Alter Egos are all-new versions of top fighters which capture authentic career-defining moments and provide alternative looks and associated abilities. For example, players can play as Conor McGregor during his iconic 2013 debut, or Jon Jones during his title reign.
Alter Egos add a new layer of depth and personality to the game. They allow players to experience the game from the perspective of their favorite fighters and experiment with different fighting styles.
Online Career Mode
Online Career Mode includes skill-based matchmaking, division progression, and title chases across four divisions. Players can compete with a different Created Fighter in each division, allowing them to showcase multiple character customizations and Vanity Items.
Online Career Mode is a great way to test your skills against other players from around the world and compete for the UFC championship. It is also a great way to progress your fighter and unlock new rewards.
Whether you are a casual fan or a hardcore competitor, UFC 5 is shaping up to be ultimate MMA gaming experience.
