EA Sports UFC 4 has announced the contents of its huge 3.0 patch, which adds two new fighters, menu options, gameplay changes, and a fresh control scheme.
The most noteworthy additions arriving in this patch can be found in the proper execution of two fan-favorite fighters: Calvin Kattar and Pedro Munhoz. The update comes significantly less than 24 hours when i published my wishlist of 10 fighters I needed to see put into the EA Sports UFC 4 roster. The list, that you can here read, included both Munhoz and Kattar, which means you know I’m glad to see both of these deserving fighters increasing the roster.
On the surface of the roster additions, various existing fighters have already been put into new divisions, including Jon Jones’ highly anticipated go on to heavyweight. Other updates are the ability to decide on a venue when fighting with a detailed friend online, a fresh “Learn” category to greatly help newcomers master the controls, and different fixes including ground-and-pound balance updates, stamina tweaking, and slipping being given an important buff. This update also addresses clinch spam by tweaking the stamina drain when exiting or entering the clinch, along with updates to the submission game.
For those that don’t necessarily have time and energy to obtain friends up to date on how best to play the overall game, Custom Fight Now supplies a new control scheme called “Simplified Controls,” which enables you to pick up the overall game and strike without knowing all of the inputs competently. This option, which may be toggled for every fighter individually, boils striking to the standard controls down, with the overall game helping decide which strike to throw next in line with the situation.
Alongside this update, the team at EA Sports released a hype trailer for the massive headlining fight because of this weekend’s pay-per-view. You can view the in-game trailer for Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa below.
