Video! Watch EA Sports UFC 3 official trailer reveal

The new trailer for EA Sports UFC 3 has arrived and it is downright epic. From nail-biting press conferences to Demetrious Johnson flying arm bars, the video preview features a little bit of everything for mixed martial arts (MMA) fans.

Check out the official trailer above courtesy of EA Sports.

UFC 3, which is scheduled to release on Feb. 2, 2018, for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, will feature the biggest roster in the history of UFC’s partnership with EA Sports and the most in-depth career mode fight fans could ever hope for.

Not to mention UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will grace the video game cover for the second-straight year.

Here are just some of the game’s news features, per an official press release:

EA SPORTS UFC 3 also introduces the new G.O.A.T. Career Mode where – for the first time – the choices made throughout your career impact your path to greatness. Outside of fights, players will make promotional choices to build hype, gain fans, earn more cash through big contracts and capture the world's attention. A new in-game social media system allows players to create heated rivalries with other UFC athletes, providing the freedom to take on any type of persona, between cool-headed contender or infamous trash-talker.

Building on the fan-favorite Knockout Mode introduced in EA SPORTS UFC 2, EA SPORTS UFC 3 delivers a new suite of multiplayer modes designed for fast, fun fights that are perfect for letting fists fly when playing against friends. Those looking for a quick social experience can jump into Stand & Bang mode, Submission Showdown mode, or opt to customize their match with unlimited stamina or extra strike damage in Fight Now Custom. The all-new Tournament Mode offers ultimate bragging rights as players attempt to take on as many opponents as possible in bracket-style elimination rounds with continuous damage and fatigue.

The third installment of EA Sports UFC is shaping up to be the best one yet, especially after witnessing the initial trailer. There has always been room for improvement with these games both in gameplay and on the back end, such as career mode and roster strength, so it’s nice to see the partnership finally living up to its potential.
