REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – February 2, 2018 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today launched EA SPORTS UFC 3, bringing the thrill of mixed martial arts back to consoles with new gameplay features and animations, new social modes to challenge friends, and a new G.O.A.T.

“EA SPORTS UFC 3 is the most realistic mixed martial arts game ever made,” UFC President Dana White said. “The new G.O.A.T. Career Mode gives you the opportunity to go from contender to champion by promoting your brand and performing inside the Octagon. This game has it all.”
“We’ve completely reinvented our striking game with Real Player Motion Tech, and we think fans are really going to love it,” said EA SPORTS UFC 3 Creative Director, Brian Hayes. “We’ve also incorporated a lot of fan feedback in the new G.O.A.T. Career mode, and throughout the whole game. It’s great to be back after two years working on this amazing game.”
