EA Sports UFC 4 Patch 4.0 Available - Adds 3 Fighters, Gameplay Updates & More - Patch Notes

EA Sports UFC 4 game update 4.0 is available today, featuring 3 new fighters, new vanity for your Create-A-Fighter and plenty of gameplay updates, including animation improvements for ground and pound, balancing for takedowns, and improvements to striking.

Brock Lesnar, Askar Askarov and Jennifer Maia are the new fighters. However, as a “Premium Fighter”, Brock Lesnar will only be free from today through October 29. After that date, he will cost $2.50.

The new vanity added will include Halloween inspired pieces such as a mummy, werewolf, creepy clown, and more. Additionally, we have added additional hairstyles to the created fighter options and new texture options to many of the existing pieces of vanity. You will also notice that all venues are now selectable in Online Invite, Tournament, and event modes.

If you missed our UFC 4 review, you can read it here.

Submissions are broken into two new mini-games, one using the back two shoulder triggers and the other using the left analog. In both variations, the goal is to either cover your opponent’s color, or avoid it if on the receiving side. Submissions are made even more exciting thanks to the possibility of chains into a different submission, providing an instant boost. Perhaps you need to strike your opponent to coax them into releasing their limb for an armbar or escape a hold from top position by standing up and slamming them back onto the mat. An impending heartbeat and visual effect complete an improved submission experience.

  1. Please. I know Maia is the next victim *cough* fighter next for Valentina but Ribas should have been the first female added. And the one fighting figureredo isn’t even in
    I get Lesnar but Maia and Askarov? I mean I’m always happy for more fighters but bizarre choices when guys like Chimaev, Luque, Makhachev, and Gillespie are all missing.
    That's it...? Brock Lesnar?....
    Patch 4 has consisted of a bunch of crap in the first one that barley fixed anything and the second half consisted of lesnar (who isn't even free unless you're on xbox) and other stupid cosmetic stuff.
    Cool...
    *screaming from my megaphone* "Hey EA! How about you fix the gameplay issues we've ALL been complaining about since the game launched!"
    ..*crickets*
    But here's some cool halloween gear you can put on your corny *** CAF's that 90% of the community don't even use! Yay!
    The bulk of the patch came out 2 days ago on ps4. This update had to wait for Microsoft to catch up and give the the thumbs up, due to the timed content.
    Painless taken

    That logic doesn't make sense. People are generally interested in the headliners. Imagine she somehow wins and is not in the game. I don't really think people'd care thàt much, but it'll be another excuse to badmouth EA.
    But for the record: I also would've like Ribas more.
    Btw I just LOVE the new Brock knockdown animation. It even takes multiple seconds. But I do recall him stumbling like that several times.
    Excited about new hairstyles, but if it's a dud like last "new" hairstyles, I'll probably end up disappointed.
    And still no outfit fixes. Probably didn't even fix the texture bug in career. XD

    Devs you guys should absolutely add Brocks body type into Create a Fighter.
    Even if you want to make it a requirement to have Brock unlocked thats fine I guess. A body type like his has always been missing from CAF options in the series.
    jennifer maia model is way off,she is not long, lean and ripped. Who the hell does some of these models as they have no idea of her body type and face.
    Almost 3 months out since launch and still no reason to pick this game up. I'm surprised how easy devs made it for me to not want this game. I'll just keep playing 3.

    Her face kind of looks like her real-life counterpart, though, at least on the promo image. Why make a 5th bodytype just for her (they should've made a new one for this game's release imo).

    I've noticed since the patch when I go random it will switch off random every time the other person moves to a different fighter.
    It unlocks your selection when the other player switches to stop people who bait and switch. Obviously when picking random, it doesn't make sense and is a bit annoying, but I'm fine with that annoyance over having it where you get tricked.
