During Tuesday’s unveiling of the new Xbox One console, fight fans got a first look at EA Sports’ new UFC video game.
The title, which officials said will be available within the next year, replaces THQ’s “UFC Undisputed” franchise, as well as the Strikeforce-heavy “EA Sports MMA” game that the company debuted in 2010.
During Tuesday’s announcement and unveiling, EA Sports grouped together the UFC game with its other signature franchises, including Madden (NFL), NBA Live and FIFA. All of them will use the new Ignite engine.
