EA Sports UFC release date trailer features Bruce Lee pre-order revealWritten by: / / No Comments
An EA Sports UFC release date has been announced, solidly slotting the next big mixed martial arts fighting game into a June launch window on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but the bigger news surrounding the game recently seems to be the inclusion of a legendary martial artist as a pre-order bonus.
The EA Sports UFC release date has been set at June 17th in North America and June 20th in Europe and the UK, and EA has once again showcased the technically impressive fighter in a brand new in-engine gameplay trailer. The very best bit is saved until the end, however, with the reveal of Bruce Lee as a pre-order bonus, which EA is very excited about. Creative Director at EA, Brian Hayes, said of the announcement:
“It has always been part of our vision to have Bruce Lee, the most iconic martial artist of all time, in the first ever EA Sports UFC. The team is very excited and tremendously honored to have the privilege of bringing Bruce Lee to life in our game. We’ve been working closely with the Bruce Lee team to ensure we represent the legend with as much visual and gameplay fidelity as possible.”
Shannon Lee (Bruce Lee’s daughter, CEO of Bruce Lee, LLC and Chairperson of the Bruce Lee Foundation) commented:
“I am so excited about this opportunity to bring my father back to videogames! I’m thrilled that fans can now interact with him in a new way. The EA Sports UFC development team has been incredible to work with, and they’ve done a great job capturing the look and feel of my father. I think people will love getting a chance to fulfill a fight fantasy by playing Bruce Lee in the new UFC game.”
