Get ready for “survival mode.”
EA Sports is coming back with another installment in its UFC series. The star fighter gracing the cover seems like the inevitable choice: Conor McGregor.
EA Sports UFC 3 bears a digital likeness of McGregor and his belts on the cover. It will also have settings that go along with choosing the Notorious One, like a “G.O.A.T. Career Mode,” which will allow for a full-on narrative experience.

The UFC’s press release indicates there are some real innovations in this game as well:
Real Player Motion (RPM) Tech is a revolutionary new EA SPORTS animation technology that sets a new bar for motion and responsiveness in the best-looking – and now the best-feeling – EA SPORTS UFC game ever. With over 5,000 new animations captured and rebuilt from the ground up, players can now move, strike, and create seamless combinations in-game with the world’s best mixed martial arts athletes. Every punch, kick, block, and counter has been recaptured and rebuilt on cutting-edge animation tech to look and feel life-like and responsive, delivering the most strategic, competitive fighting experience in franchise history.
Basically players will be able to experience in the world of the game a sped-up journey from novice fighter to winner with a fan following to signing contracts for big fights in the Octagon.
Multiplayer modes will include “Submission Showdown” & “Stand & Bang.” They’ll supposedly allow for more spontaneous gameplay.
There’s also said to be a tournament in UFC 3. Players will battle through several rounds, and receive realistic injury and energy drain along the way.
