Online services have been shut down since April 13,  for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox On June 1, , Electronic Arts announced that an all-new fighting title is in development under the EA Sports brand. Its website did not reveal any facts about the gameplay or its release date, just one link to sign up for the EA Sports newsletter and another that directs people to EA Sports' MMA forum.
This game has many options to create the ultimate MMA experience. The game focuses on global MMA, not but it's the hardest restricting its gameplay to one brand or region. It was announced that the first trailer would be shown on CBS, during Strikeforce: Rogers on November 7, The trailer featured Emelianenko and Rogers performing a variety of attacks and defenses against each other.
The trailer ended with both of the men about to punch each other in the face. Players can move, and strike at enemies. They can turn attacks into body punches, kicks or feints. Depending on the timing, successful defense can result in a sprawl, transitional block or a reversal. Submissions can be attempted, and the defending player can prevent the hold from being applied if he reacts quickly enough.
Otherwise, the fighters engage in one of two submission mini-games. Once a submission has been initiated, it is not possible to cancel out of it.
For arm and leg submissions, the players must tap either the submit or defend button several times until the defending fighter either submits or escapes. The idea is to tap the button in short bursts while maintaining the stamina at optimum levels and never letting it drain completely.
For chokes, a circular image appears in the center of the screen. A colored marker moves along the circumference from clockwise to counterclockwise in unpredictable patterns and fades in and out of view.
The player whether on offense or defense must track and match the movement of the marker with the left analog stick. The circle shrinks while the screen fades to black as the fighter gets closer to getting choked out and expands when one gets closer to escaping. The game is set in venues include boxing rings, circular cages and hexagonal cages, and it includes multiple rule sets including Japanese, Vale Tudo, and Strikeforce rules in addition to standard Unified Rules.
The game includes the ability to fight southpaw- or orthodox, execute foot stomps, soccer kicks and knees to the face on the ground, and fight on the cage, with clinchwork and countering. Mauro Ranallo and Frank Shamrock provide commentary, but are unable to announce most custom names. The player will be able to upload hype videos, which will help to increase popularity.
Real life prizes will be given out to a certain level. White remarks, "EA Sports told us, 'You're not a real sport. We wouldn't touch this thing. We want nothing to do with this. White has since changed his standpoint on this subject.
At the gatherings, UFC Hall of Fame fighter Randy Couture and former Pride champion Fedor Emelianenko , both of whom grace the cover of the game, finally got the opportunity to fight each other, albeit via their video gamer personas. Fedor went on to win via TKO in the game. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs to be updated. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information.
