As if it wasn't enough to deliver the first totally next gen UFC game with unrivalled realism and graphics but EA has also gone all out to offer players up a real fighting legend.
For the first time, Bruce Lee will be a playable character in a UFC game. The Chinese Martial artist and actor died tragically in 1973 at the age of 32 and has become even more legendary since - especially for his life philosophy and the generally awesome way he beat the crap out of things.
Here's the latest reveal trailer for EA SportsUFC.
“I am so excited about this opportunity to bring my father back to videogames!” said Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, CEO of Bruce Lee, LLC and Chairperson of the Bruce Lee Foundation. “I’m thrilled that fans can now interact with him in a new way. TheEA SPORTS UFCdevelopment 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.”
“There’s no debate, Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts,” said Dana White, UFC President. “He believed not one style of fighting was the best and that you had to have a little piece of everything to be a complete fighter. He was proven right when the first UFC event took place in 1993.”
EA Sports UFC is coming to Xbox One and PS4 on the 17th of June 2014
