EA Sports has finally give UFC fans a good bit of information by release the UFC 3 release date and cover star for the game. The game will be releasing on February 2 of 2018, and Connor McGregor will be starring on the game’s cover. McGregor had previously been on UFC 2’s cover.
Then again, this is the first time McGregor has been on the cover on his own. When UFC 2 came out, he was on the cover along with another rising star in the UFC, Ronda Rousey. While Rousey will be in the game this time around, she doesn’t get a cover spot like McGregor does.
Other fighters that will be included in UFC 3 include Rampage Jackson, Chuck Liddell, Nate Diaz, and Holly Holm. In the weeks up until the game being released we’ll likely have even more fighters being revealed as well.
Connor McGregor may be familiar to you if you’ve followed combat sports in the last few months: he recently went up against renowned boxer Floyd Mayweather, and lost after a fairly intense fight. However, you’ll be able to see him in his element here, rather than being in a sport where he can’t use half of the limbs he can use in the UFC ring.
The UFC 3 release date and cover star being revealed is only one small part of the game, as well. UFC 3 advertises a new animation software called Real Player Motion, which gives you fluid and responsive motion. Along with that is the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) career mode, where players can promote various fights, create rivalries, and more.
To get a look at the UFC 3 release date and cover star for yourself, you can look on EA’s website, and watch the first reveal trailer here. Once again UFC 3 comes out on February 2, 2018, for the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
