of outcomes, driven by user control and fighter attributes. From power carries
to clean sprawls to all new driving takedowns where players actively push or
defend through the takedown attempt, fights are won or lost in these impactful
- Devastating Ground and Pound: Finding ways to inflict significant damage
from the ground has become the trademark of some of the UFC’s best. With the
ground and pound overhaul, UFC 4 puts you in more control of postured-up
scenarios, giving the striker more tools to aim and pick their spots and the
defender access to more tools, like head movement and well-timed counter
- New Submissions System: The overhauled system introduces an all-new
experience for the submission phase. Depending on your position, one of two new
mini-games will trigger, built to offer a simplified user experience. In
addition, players now have the ability to strike from the submission phase and
more ways to transition submissions to accelerate the finish, or deploy
high-impact slams to escape them.

for greater control and understanding in the ground game. Basic left-stick
button inputs allow players to instantly trigger an effort to ‘get-up’,
‘submit’, or advance to a more advantageous ‘ground and pound’

controlled striking, while offering better access to a variety of combinations.
Using the new mechanic, players can choose between tapping the button to strike
with speed, or holding it to execute slower, more damaging, blows.

changing shot, or see face-rippling replays of devastating knockout blows that

Daniel “DC” Cormier, jumps into the commentary booth alongside UFC broadcast
staple, Jon Anik, providing a fresh, new commentary experience that is

streets or born out of old martial arts discipline, these new environments make
the fighter… and the fight.

past that paved the way for their professional future. In the backyard
environment, you better finish the fight because out here the
judge’s scorecard is the last thing anyone wants to see.

their fighting discipline on any challengers.
