EA Sports has revamped their Career and Online Championship modes for UFC 2. To showcase the new bells and whistles, the publisher released a new clip today to elaborate the game’s changes.
This year, you begin your Career mode by selecting a preexisting fighter or creating your own. Also, for the first time, you can utilize female characters while starting a new career. You once again start as an entrant in The Ultimate Fighter. Once you progress through that and start your career proper, you’ll have the options of multiple fights to choose. Some of which are short notice, which present preparation problems, but in-turn give more benefits should you prove victorious.
There’s also been an all-new training camp feature implemented. Here, you can apply attributes to your stand-up, clinch and ground game. You can also choose how hard you want to try by selecting various intensities. The harder you trainer, the more quickly you’ll develop. However, train too hard and you can incite injuries to your character which will linger into the fights you’re training for.
UFC 2 has also brought Ranked Championships into the mix for online play. There’s some core changes this year, as the below video explains that “division progression is no longer based on a 10 fight season, but updates fluidly with each new fight result.” There’s also a new Featured Fighter mode and Title Chase options for those delving into the online octagon.
Take a look at the video below to get all the details and changes coming to careers and online for UFC 2. The game is just under a month away, launching in North America on March 15th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
