Groundbreaking Animation Technology

Powered by Real Player Motion Tech, EA SPORTS UFC 3 features cutting-edge animation technology that makes every move, every strike, and every combination more realistic, responsive, and rewarding.

Strategic Risk vs. Reward Damage System

The new Damage System introduces more tension and thrill based on risk-vs-reward strategy. Fighter positioning, stance, and vulnerability now has an even greater effect on the impact of each strike, making every punch thrown an opportunity to finish the fight, or leave yourself open to a devastating counter blow.

Hyperrealistic Locomotion

Footwork is now at the forefront of tactical fighting in EA SPORTS UFC 3. New animations brought to life through RPM Tech replicate uninterrupted fighter movement. UFC fighters now move across the mat, close gaps, and manage distances with seamless fluidity.

Authentic Fighter Styles

The biggest stars in the UFC now move and feel exactly as they do in real life, thanks to replicated fighting personalities. From Conor McGregor's four-hit combo to Demetrius Johnson's strike-to-takedown combinations, UFC 3 now realizes the life-like tendencies of some of the biggest fighters of the UFC, allowing you to execute their most dangerous combinations just as they do.

Fluid Striking

Thousands of new strike animations mean that every strike can be thrown while maintaining fighter momentum, allowing you to circle your opponent while throwing a hook, hit them with a counter straight on the retreat, or pressure them against the cage with combinations. Every fighter in the game has a variety of strike combinations at their disposal, making them a weapon you can learn to master inside the Octagon. Strikes can also be thrown out of slips and lunges, or feinted by pressing the block button, allowing you to bait your opponent into making a mistake and creating strategic opportunities for devastating counter attacks.
