EA Sports have dropped a brand new trailer for UFC 4’s career mode ahead of the August 14 release date, and it looks seriously impressive.
The new and improved storyline will bring a different feel to past editions.
In UFC 4, you will have new tools and more control over your journey from unknown amateur to UFC Champion using four pillars: fighter evolution, relationship system, unscripted storyline, and injury system.
The new fighter evolution feature will allow your character to grow based on the disciplines they use in training and in bouts. Your fighter will grow and improve based on the decisions you make in the gym and in the Octagon.
Depending on your tendencies in training and in fights, your fighter will begin to become more proficient in the attack styles you use more often. So if you want to be a great striker, throw more combos – and if you want to be a great wrestler, take it to the mat.
In terms of the relationship system, Coach Davis is UFC 4’s new interactive coach character that will guide you on your journey to the top – and during your career, you will be able to Interact with fans, fighters and promoters to shape your reputation and career.
You can even call out opponents on social media.
Your character will also be able to learn from the very best. If you want to fight like a UFC champion, you’ve got to train with UFC champions.
You can Invite other fighters to your camp and you’ll pick up on their habits, styles and techniques. Want to become a better grappler? Bring Khabib to camp. Want to throw heavy hands? Spar with Masvidal. Just like in a real fighter’s career, your training partners will rub off on you and influence your style.
Of course, you can also choose your path. Whether you want to fight in the amateur circuit and build your name in the World Fighting Alliance – or go straight into the UFC and get your shot in the spotlight on The Contender series. The choice is yours.
There will also be a selection of brand new venues in UFC 4. From the backyard to the storied tradition of the Kumite, or even the Apex and Action Avenue – your fighting style will be shaped by these all new, immersive environments.
Blitz battles is also another new feature this year. This fast-paced mode pits you against other fighters online, competing in a six round rapid-fire tournament.–sportbible
