After the game’s reveal just over a week ago along with an extremely brief closed beta, EA Sports is set to release the gameplay trailer for UFC 4 on Tuesday, July 21.
Those who want to watch it can do so below when it goes live at 11 a.m. ET.
UFC 4 features a number of new elements including overhauled ground and pound gameplay, a change to the game’s submission system, and improvements to the game’s career mode.
The career mode will see you start from the very bottom, developing your fighter’s backstory on the way to becoming a UFC legend. Players will be able to choose their opponents and build up their own rivalries in different ways compared to past installments of the franchise.
According to EA Sports, “Relationship Building brings the impact of partnerships and rivalries into UFC 4, learning from both friend and foe to gain experience and learn vital skills.”
The will also feature two of boxing’s greatest modern day fighters as pre-order bonuses: Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. Those who pre-order the game will also get a number of bonus items, including:
- Backyard Customization Pack
- Jean Print Shorts
- Backyard Camo Shirt
- Backyard MMA Gloves
- Skull Cap
- Gold Chain
- Rope Gloves
- Cobra Mask
- Kumite Customization Pack
- Kumite Gladiator Shorts
- Kumite Cobra Shirt
- Kumite Necklace
What won’t be in the game, however, is Ultimate Team. The mode was removed after being in the last two releases due to its lack of overall popularity, according to the development staff.
The game launches on August 14 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and is expected to be playable on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 thanks to the consoles’ backwards compatibility features.
