Electronic Arts Inc. today announced EA SPORTS™ UFC® 2 launches on March 15, 2016 in North America, and March 17, 2016 worldwide. In addition to the announcement, EA released a cinematic trailer for EA SPORTS UFC 2 featuring some of the biggest moments from recent bouts, showcasing authentic gameplay features, and highlighting new character visuals and signature animations. The trailer opens on EA SPORTS UFC 2 cover athlete and UFC® featherweight champion, Conor McGregor showing fans the all-new Knockout Physics System in his championship fight at UFC® 194. From there, fans will see Dynamic Grappling, and Next-Level Submissions while reliving some of the heart-stopping moments from recent fights, and speculating what could happen in upcoming contests. Watch the trailer here.

“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.”

Fans excited to step into the Octagon® can pre-order EA SPORTS UFC 2 and get day one access to two legendary fighters: UFC Hall of Famer and three-time King of Pancrase, Bas Rutten; and Japanese MMA legend, “The Gracie Hunter” Kazushi Sakuraba, with an additional mystery fighter who will be named later.* The deluxe edition of the game also includes up to $60 of UFC Ultimate Team™ Premium Packs**.

Finally! Ive been holding in the release date for almost 3 months and Sakuraba and Bas Rutten for weeks.

I think you guys will like the mystery fighter too.

I enjoyed Bas and the McGregor Swagger. Really excited about how the new damage system is looking as well.

The game is looking good. I'm not a legend or Ultimate Team guy so I'd much rather the pre-order incentive be like what NBA 2K did where you can get the game a few days early. Other than that I can't wait to see the full fighter list.

Given that EA is selling EA Access based on the idea that you can play the game early, I don't see them offering that as a pre-order bonus.

I was expecting this game to come out in late June so the 3/15/16 release date is a nice surprise. The trailer looked pretty good. They definitely added a lot more signature animations which was sorely needed. It looks like the game still runs at 30 fps which is kind of a disappointment. I was hoping for 60fps but not a deal breaker. What will be a deal breaker is if the game doesn't have gameplay sliders. Gameplay sliders are a must in any sports game. Nothing worse than a game forcing you to play the way they want you to. Any word on sliders being in the game?

I'm happy with this release date. I think EA will move to an every-other year approach with this time frame and release the UFC and Rory McIlroy games in March since they don't have a baseball game to get out in time for the season.

Hell yeah. Glad that it's dropping so soon.

At 0:28, Maia's going to be a lot of fun to play as.

Cro Cop is a current signed UFC fighter so I doubt he is the mystery fighter. Also he is on a drug suspension which wouldnt be great press for EA.

Oh yeah forgot about the drug thing.

Going off of the other two, seems like it could be a former Pride fighter.

Please let the mystery fighter be Fedor. Heck I would settle for Dan Fyre
 
# 18 chezel78 @ 01/05/16 01:17 PM
It would be cool to add a tournament mode? Any news of this? I didn't see it on the website? Also is Pride mode coming back?

Hey aholbert32, question for you are there fight camps now in career mode? Can our guy choose which camp to join?
