UFC 3 Multiplayer Game Modes Deep Dive



In EA SPORTS UFC 3, there is a whole new suite of multiplayer game modes for you to play in. Grab some friends and compete head-to-head in a variety of fun multiplayer game modes.

We'll be unveiling them all throughout this week, so be sure to check back for a new multiplayer mode each day!

Knockout Mode

The fan-favorite Knockout Mode from EA SPORTS UFC 2 returns. Set the amount of strikes it takes to win and face off against an opponent with no grappling and no ground game. Unleash the punches, kicks, knees and elbows in this fast, fun, and furious mode.

The rules to KO Mode are simple. Both players start with the same amount of health but with each devastating shot landed the health bar decreases. Once you get your opponent down to one health bar get ready to Finish the Fight because the next shot you land will be a KO.

Stand & Bang 

Stand and bang with all strikes and no ground game in an authentic, five-round bout. Select your fighters and go head to head. All it takes is one strike to knockout your opponent.

Submission Shootout 

Show off your ground game skills and take on your opponent entirely on the ground. Use holds, ground-and-pound, and submissions to get the win and be a champion.

Fight Now Custom

Fight your way with complete control over every setting and slider in Fight Now Custom. You can tune and adjust everything including stamina, transition speed, submission speed, grapple advantage, damage, health recovery, and perks to create the ultimate bout.

Tournament Mode 

Tournament Mode is the ultimate game mode for a group of friends: choose your fighter and see how many opponents you can finish in a King of the Hill style tournament mode. The last man standing wears the crown and earns the bragging rights among your friends. Choose whether or not your damage obtained in a previous fight carries into the next bout for the ultimate survival test.
