    It's how it goes for every new EA title, so it would be weird if this suddenly changed after all these years.
    True but I wouldn't be surprised with the response to the beta and apprehensiveness to market overall

    Plenty of games have had bad/shaky betas and still came out on access early.
    It's a feature you're paying for, I'd be pissed if they suddenly stopped doing it with no announcement lol
    Just curious, is it 10 hours the moment you get it or 10 hours the moment you start playing? Like if you get it when it drops but can’t play it for a day or two for some reason do you still have the 10 hours?

    The latter, so dont leave it on pause or whatever.
    So I’ve used Ea access before to get UFC 2 a couple months back because my copy wasn’t working and after a while I didn’t want to pay for ea access anymore so I cancelled the subscription and it took the game back so I can’t play it. I was just wondering if that’s just a normal thing and that’s the way the subscription works?
    I believe you can pre-order through UFC 3 and EA Access for a discount as well.
    So anyone that doesn’t have EA Access can get it for a month, which is $5 I believe? The discount is $5 so if you cancel EA Access within 1 month, you basically get early access for Free

    illogical
    it makes the game feel cheap. I think EA UFC 4 can be considered a budget title. I never spent more than $15 on any EA UFC game since 2014

    I’m not sure I get your logic here. Which makes sense considering your name haha. JK man.
    But seriously, not sure what you mean. All of EA’s games are available for EA access if I am not mistaken? Isn’t that the point of paying for the service?
    I’m not sure how this makes UFC feel cheap, if it’s no different than others

    You are essentially renting the games (not new releases)for $5 a month. New releases are just a 10 hour trial. You can't just pay the first month and get the whole library for good.

    I've never used EA Access for a 10 hour trial before, can somebody conform whether you can preload before the 7th or is it just unlocked on that date and you'll have to download it after then?

    Why would you preload before the 7th? Honestly I don't get the fascination with preload. Release is on 14th so technically you would be preloading it during the Access trial.
    Also, it's 10 hours, which - if you're somewhat exited about the game - you've spend way before release. So I wouldn't worry too much about it.
    I also think that - even when preordering - you're going to have to wait for the 14th to continue, which is really weird but understandable.

    Some people don't have fibre internet or have slower connections so preloading is a blessing for those people. And even if you do, it's nice to be able to play it as soon as the game drops.

    I kinda see your point but it definitely won't take me 10 minutes to download the game that's for sure.
    Also, we all have different circumstances, if it was 20 year old me then I would rinse the 10 hours in a day, but sadly I am 39 now, have a job, kids & other stuff to do so I'll be lucky if I get 10 hours to play it between 7th & 14th lol.
    Maybe I'm free on 7th but busy that weekend? Maybe I'm poor and my internet is getting cut off on the 8th. Maybe I've only got 5 days left to live and my dying wish is to duke it out in the backyard with Kimbo Slice...?
    I'm pleased that you have all the time in the world and a rocket fuelled internet connection but not everyone does.
    I genuinely have never played a trial game on EA Access before either so wanted to know if preload is a thing on them or not. I so, I can leave it running overnight and play it the next day, if not no worries. Just asking...
    Ok, sorry about that. I don't have fast internet myself and it takes me a long time to download, but it's just a game man. We've been waiting for months now. One more day of downloading won't hurt. But it's true you might as well avoid it.
    But to answer your question: I just preordered seconds ago and it started a 24 gig download so there you go. But in my (limited) experience there might be a day 1 patch immediately that is... the same size, making the whole thing moot as it's wasting our bandwidth.
    Also: when you take one month of EA Access, the 10% discount is cumulative with the UFC3 discount. So you can get it for 55$. I wasn't sure about that, so it seems like a no-brainer. In fact, EA is deliberately trying to make you look stupid for not doing it. Good thing it's easy to unsubscribe immediately.

    Yeah that's exactly why I got EA Access as it ended up being much cheaper with the UFC 3 discount as well AND I get it earlier so it's a win, win really.
    Thanks for your answer, I'll have a look.about downloading it now. Cheers

    Did the same thing. Pre-Order through UFC 3 game for a discount, plus EA Access seems to be a discounted pre-order. I got the game for $48
    Also, I can just cancel EA Access in the 1st month anyway. So it’s basically a Free early Access
    EDIT- I’m also 35 with a full time job, Wife, Kids, Dog, House to maintain, etc. 10 Hours for a week is about standard for me these days anyway. So Early Access will definitely get me to the 14th.

    It's unfortunate they still submit you to the 10 hour limit. I guess it's standard so people can't get a competitive advantage for the PvP section? I can't come up with another reason.

    You might get bored and not buy the game if they let you play it unlimited, you could feasibly complete career mode & have your fill of fights then cancel your pre-order I guess.
    This way, you get a fair crack at the game so you can decide whether to buy or not but you can't complete it etc. Think of it applying to all EA games, not just this one. You could complete no end of EA games if they gave you a week for free and they'd lose sales.

    Right. I forgot you can actually cancel the preorders, which is probably a 'customer protection' law that is exploited more than it protects. :y14:
    Sorry if this has been asked already, but is the EA access version the game we're going to get at launch just without the day one patches? Or is it the early build we're seeing Youtubers posting right now? I just wanna know what to expect.

    It should be retail version yeah. I doubt they would go through all the trouble to make those people get an early version of the game. They'd give them the best version they can provide since so many people are going to be seeing it.

    What time during EST timezone will the game be playable on EA Access?

    No one knows. EA has released access games in the morning, afternoon and early evening.
    Just a heads up. Ea often makes the trial available the day before the date listed because of downloading times. If they drop it early it’s usually early evening eastern time around 5pm on Thursday.  In this scenario the game will be playable right away after you download on Thursday.  Don’t expect it Thursday but think of it as a nice surprise if it is available.

    If I do the trial and then decide to buy the full game, will I pay it full price or will it deduct the EA access cost? Never done this

    You should get a discount for buying it while being subscribed to EA Access. Think you get another discount if you buy it from the UFC 3 menu iirc.
    I hate the 10 hr thing. I usually try to stretch it out though...2 hrs a day and it should last me a couple days. Maybe even close to release day/night.
    Find_the_Door
    Shut it off and timer won't continue

    thanks, that's perfect. I won't have much time this weekend, so I could probably stretch the 10 hours until release day.

    Assuming it's like previous trials with EA Acess, the timer only runs while you're in game. However, that seems to count time in menus and paused as well.
    Don't think I need more than one trial, and if I do feel like I need to play more then I should probably buy the game instead. But that doesn't feel too likely right now.

    Hmm...makes perfect sense. Cuz honestly, my first couple of hrs are just gonna be in the lab trying to figure some things out. Especially with the clinch and td's, cuz in the beta I kept getting brutalized in the clinch and taken down fairly easy, as if I had to pre deny or something.

    In my hours during the beta, I didn't stuff a single TD lol. And it wasnt like I did not know the controls for it.

    Yh man idk. I saw ppl defending too and I was aware of the controls to defend, but it just wasn't working for me for whatever reason. So i'm gonna drill the hell out of that stuff in practice mode. Not trying to get mauled by Khabib's online lol.
    Is the input for clinch R1+ tap lead punch? The input for takedowns is R1+ hold punch.. I hope the clinch input becomes hold if that's the case for consistency.

    Been a while but I think you have it right, takedowns were L2+square/triangle/x/y. Clinch may have been L1+jab now that I think about it.

    You're right, I blanked and wrote the wrong input for takedowns. Either way it should become the same for consistency- Hold and have it hold for longer so there arent as many accidental takedowns or clinch.

    Thanks man. I'm definitely gonna do it. I wonder if online will be available, or is it just offline.

    Will you get unlimited play if you buy Origin Access Premiere? Will the game be available the same time as EA Access?

    No. Origin access does not include UFC in any capacity. The trial is for EA Access, and there is only one version of that trial. You can play it for 10 hours, that’s it.
    Is there a way to predownload before Friday for EA Access? I just signed up for the first time and haven't done it before.

    I apologize if this has been asked, and answered, already but to play the early access this Friday, do you have to have a digital copy preordered or do you just need to sign up for EA Access?? Been hearing conflicting things on this, some say all you need is to sign up for EA Access(if you dont already have it) some say you have to preorder a digital copy of EA UFC 4, which I wouldn't think you would just to play it thru EA Access, I've never had to preorder anything to have early access to a game.

    I don't have the data for the releases of the FIFA trials. I wouldn't expect midnight. More like 20h later. But you never know. If there was a fixed hour they would've told us obviously.
    Imagine being a hardcore fan who paid for EA access expecting to get your hands on the sticks tomorrow....but it turns out you don't have any power thanks to the storm knocking it out. Mine shoudl be back on today at some point they say but friends back in Jersey where I grew up are being told Monday.
    Better take that console to damn hotel!

    Doubt it releases at midnight, but I got my EA Access from SG store so we'll see in like 4 hours.

    It doesn't matter what store you buy ea access from, the trial releases at the same time globally.. historically access trials have always released between 3-11pm UK time on the day before the official release. With the one exception being ffia 20 which released at 10am on the official day of release.
    Hopefully that clears up some misinformation

    Oh ok, Thanks. I have not had ea access for awhile. Did they improve Big Nog’s stats?

    Yh. Even though he isn't young Big Nog, they gave him the legend prime stats. Faster punching speed, better head movement and footwork and he probably now has one of the best chins at HW, with a 93 chin rating. His submissions are even more dangerous now too, at a 98 sub offense. Maybe the best submission offense at HW? Think was the same in UFC 3 though, but now he has better submission perks to go with it. Its between him and Werdum I guess. But yh, Big Nog should feel much more fun to use now in this game.

    Yh Door's gonna have hella fun with Big Nog now. I can't wait to try him out myself. With his prime stats, he's gonna be way more competitive and a more viable option now.
    I've just signed up to access on the PS4 for it. But how do I use it? Is it an app? So I download it? Does it download the full game? Or more of a streaming thing? Access isn't listed anywhere in my games etc
    I'm really looking forward to this trial, but for a very different reason. I'm a totally blind gamer, and EA has been doing a lot for blind gamers including adding spoken menu narration, and vibration feedback for certain actions in game. Madden for example has a ton of stuff to allow us to enjoy the game. I'm excited to experience what enhancements UFC4 has gotten. UFC3 had very little when it came to accessibility, but heres hoping UFC4 got a boost.

    There is an app you have to download. Once you do there is a menu to download access games and trials. UFC isn’t up yet.

    Yup, can confirm its there for me on PS4. Downloading now, 27.540 GB
    Go to the Playstation store, search UFC 4 and you should see "Download Trial" option next to it

    I hope this doesn't cause any confusion with the game's own preload date of 8/08/20 :y220:
    I believe it keeps it downloaded and once you're ten hours is up, you simply can't play it again until August 8. But you wouldn't need to re-download.

    I got nervous because it wouldn't let me download the trial initially. Then I unchecked the automatic download option for the preload, and when I went back to the store it showed the trial version available.
    I don't know if that's necessarily why it started working for me, but you should be able to download it even if you have it preordered.

    It still says I'm too early to play the game wtf. I have EA Access.

    Dude I’m so confused by all this how does this work 😂 I read last night at work about ea access I’m like oh nice. Working nights I’m zonked during the week. 10 hours is more than enough for me till next Friday morning when the hard copy drops. But I’m seeing you need to pre-order online to get the 10 hours. Therefore defeating the purpose of access. S.O.S 😂
    lakerhater
    Wait you had to pre-order a digital download thru the store to get the 10 hour trial??? I never read that about EA access *
    No I haven't pre ordered. I just got EA access and the option to download the trial showed up in the ps store.

    i got the same 5hr time in the game... but upon booting the game it says 10hrs.
    i feel like i'm gonna get ripped off 5 hours.

    My timer showed the correct time remaining after I restarted the game. Crisis averted.

    i restarted and it still said 4hr54min. watch they get me for 5hrs.
    my boot notice when starting the game is still correct tho.
    If someone who downloads the test, I can confirm if the fight standing continues, and if it can be carried out in addition to fighting now, in offline tournament mode, and in local event mode.
    Thank you
    Playing with Aldo and Yan atm, the speed of kicks and the overall feel striking feels so much better. Even the AI feels good, Yan doesn't seem to have that sit and wait style that the AI had in 3. He's been pretty aggressive.
    Feel silly asking but can the pre and post fight emotes be skipped in fight now?
    Enjoyed how in both UFC 2 and 3 you was able to pause, restart and be ready to go instantly after a quick mash of X when the fight had been ended, couldn't seem to do that in the beta because of the forced emotes.
    lakerhater
    Hmm it didn’t show for me. I’ll have to check when I return home shortly. Here’s to hoping haha

    I had that problem too. You have to first get EA Access then when you type UFC 4 in the store you should see trial next to preorder. (This works for Ps4 atleast)
    Couple things I've noticed.
    Fought tony Ferguson on normal and when he went for a power takedown he just stood there until it let me down. He did this every time.
    Yoel looks so much better.
    Machida looks weird. Big head short arms.
    Some character models look fantastic for the first time in this series in my opinion. While others are still lacking.
    Gameplay feels good. Glad they added the HUD to postured up positions, but ground and pound still has no real impact and the tko as many have said looks silly.

I don’t feel very comfortable with the clinch but I like the threat of the clinch when the fight gets in the phone booth, it keeps both fighter more honest. This looks like a pretty good foundation to build off of. A lot more has changed since UFC 3 than I realized.
    Damage was nerfed even more, but at this point I’ve just accepted that it isn’t happening.
    Was there a boost button brought in to speed up transitions on a ufc3 patch? I can't remember how to do it or find it anywhere? It blasted your stamina but helped you get up etc if you needed it?

    Hold Rb/R1 when going for the get up
    These are the final moments of a fight I had a few minutes ago. I love how different elements of the game flow into each other so fluidly in UFC 4.
    My opponent kept covering up every time he got into trouble. Being able to time an elbow, drop him, continue the attack with knees once he popped back up, drop him again, and then finish the fight on top felt awesome.
    I have no interest in playing UFC 3 again.

    Thanks. Do the transition first then press it while it's happening.?
    Are there any videos detailing how to do transition games etc? I find it impossible to escape the ground game and every time I fake I still get denied and ruins my stamina

    Are you kidding me? They nerfed damage again?

    Hold RB first and then do it.
    Yeah there are some good videos. I’d recommend subbing to Dmart
    A Gamechanger and one of the best grapplers. He has all kinds of videos detailing the different aspects of grappling.

    The KO animations have never bothered me as much as everyone else. But I do hope they get that and the ref interaction on point eventually.

    I knew nothing about using RB when trying to get up, good stuff. You weren't kidding when you said it kills your stamina.
    Also, I just played against a Khabib. He looks very odd in this game.
    *edit*
    It may have been a CAF Khabib. I'll check.
    *edit*
    Yeah, Khabib looks off lmao. That side profile ain't it.

    The horse is nothing but mush and gristle at this point but it really sucks how bad the conclusion of GnP/TKOs look.
    Beautiful clip and I love how it all flows together for the win but the dramatic arm flop after the GnP looks like a move an interpretative dancer would pull to the chorus of My Heart Will Go On, really hope they improve it post-launch.
    Damage is really bad right now. Rocks should be more devastating so we dont have so many rocks per fight. I just saw Pryoxis hit 10 rocks/kds. Its the same as ufc 3.

    Who were the fighters? And did he keep letting them stand?

    He was Dillashaw and the opponent was Garbrandt. He didn't do anything out of the ordinary except throw a lot of leg kicks. They were leg rocks mostly. And he let them stand back up sometimes other times he followed them down.

    Wait were these leg kick KDs?
    I know they changed the chin deterioration so it should be easier to get a clean KO after a bunch of rocks.
    I’m surprised he was able to get 10 head rocks

    Yeah they wre mostly leg rocks but head was included too.
    Rocks are as easy to get as ufc 3 so that's good but they should be more devastating including leg rocks.

    Oh that’s completely different lol
    Rocks are actually harder to get right now.
    Not sure how I want finishes from leg kicks to be easier. We’ve seen fighters who can barely stand continue fighting.
    I do think damage needs to be upped so I’m on your side there

    Anybody know if content you unlocked/progress you make is carried over to the "official" release date or is everything wiped?

    Don't know for sure, but if it's like other EA early access games, everything will carry over.

    gsp4392
    Yep but EA won’t change it

    They might. I was pretty impressed with the first set of patch notes. Maybe they are spending all their time working on the game which doesn’t leave much time for interacting with the community.

    Haha you should talk to pryoxis. He was saying he wants to talk to a gamechanger about the state of leg kicks.
    It was honestly an excessive amount of rocks.

    Didnt that happen to Gilbert Melendez?
    I didnt watch the fight so I cant say how bad it was but we’ve seen dudes eat a crap ton of leg kicks and keep going.

    Yeah but it wasnt like this. 10 rocks is excessive it shouldn't take that much for a finish.
    Couple of quick notes:
    -Striking feels fantastic. Super smooth
    -Still getting used to kicking and throwing advanced techniques
    -Love the clinch. Still trying to find my way tho. Figuring out when I’m vulnerable, I seem to take big damage when I think I’m the one with the advantage. But its silky smooth and devastating
    -Sub system is much better than the beta.
    -Stamina still needs to be more realistic
    -Kumite and Backyard are great but Kumite is surprisingly really cool.
    -liking the GnP but it needs more impact! More follow through on landed punches. But I do like how damaging it is
    It feels like this is MMA finally. UFC 3 was a kickboxing game.
    EDIT: Some models are good other are terrible. Anthony Smith is gigantic!

    Shoutout to my bois responsible for character stats. There's considerably more love spread to fighters outside the top 5 and quite many of them have even some highly rated (4-5) moves. There's some little adjustments I'd make (E.g. I think Bisping deserves better defensive grappling stats) but generally speaking I'm happy with things.
    People also need to stop whining about star ratings because they mean next to nothing. For example, Nick Diaz has a low rating because his striking is plummeted by his kicks, footwork and TDD. The actual stats that you associate with Nick are really good.

    Agree 100%. Fighters seem pretty well represented and actually viable now

    I find myself actually fighting to the strengths of my fighter now. I usually just boxed with everyone no matter who it was. It helps that I don't hate going to the ground in UFC 4. The addition of sways isn't a big change, but it keeps it from feeling so static.
    Don't forget to turn your game off.
    I played for hours, went to get something to eat, and left the console on out of habit. I burned another hour and a half doing nothing.
    I know I'll be spending another $5. This isn't gonna last me until release and I've gotta get my **** together.

    What's career mode like?
    How fast does the longevity meter decrease?

    I've done 12 fights so far 11 in the minor leagues and one in the ufc. I'm at about 80% left on the meter. YMMV with your playstyle and how hard you train etc. Thing I like the most is that my extended time in the WFA seems to have paid off, I entered the ufc at rank 9 beat Jared Cannonier who was rank 4 and now I'm ranked 5. So the extended stay seems to fast track you. The rivalry mechanic seems a bit more organic this time too, I could've played with nice with Jared but he **** on me for being the new guy so I responded back taunting him. With me beating him it made us rivals, not sure how It'll play, but I'm excited for it.

    You gotta use another account or what? I really wish they'd just let people who bought the game keep playing. Chances are if you play the whole 10 hours AND want more you are not going to cancel your pre-order.

    I've never done this before, but I'm assuming so. It would be cool if we could just agree to give them another $5 on the same account if we can't keep playing our preorder.
