EA Sports UFC 5 release date, price, cover star

The majority of the most popular video games in recent years have been produced by EA Sports. EA has had considerable success across a number of sports. 

Soccer and mixed martial arts (MMA) are just two examples; another is football. The UFC, FIFA, and Madden series are just a few of the high-earning games that EA has created. 

The US-based company has also experienced significant UFC success, which has inspired them to create a video game four times. After introducing various in-game activities, EA Sports UFC 4 sold more copies than any other franchise game. Fans have been waiting impatiently for UFC 5’s update since EA just revealed a teaser for it.

EA Sports Has Released The UFC 5 Full Reveal Schedule

A release date was recently revealed in a teaser video that EA recently produced for the upcoming game. According to the video, there will be a “Full reveal” in September, which is still a few months away. 

For UFC fans, the fifth edition’s logo is the only thing that has been officially verified as of yet.

In August 2020, EA published UFC 4, and we can undoubtedly count on them to maintain the status quo this year as well. A full announcement, including the cover athlete, is anticipated for September, just one month before the game is released.  

Speaking of the cover athletes, Jorge Masvidal and Israel Adesanya were featured on the cover of UFC 4. 

Izzy earned the right to wear the middleweight title belt by winning at UFC 248 and UFC 258, whereas Gamebred dropped his lone contest of the year against Kamaru Usman. Despite this, he was featured on the front cover of UFC 5.

Before choosing an athlete to be the cover athlete for a given year, EA takes into account the individual’s popularity in addition to the fighter’s performance.

There is a chance that Adesanya will be the cover athlete for UFC 5 once more, joining Conor McGregor as the only fighter to have done so twice. 

However, EA will create UFC 5 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and PS5 and Xbox Series.

The Pricing For UFC 5

Although the pricing of UFC 5 is yet unknown, we may anticipate that EA will put it between $50 and $60. The preceding instalments of the franchise have all cost that amount. The cost of the games is not anticipated to significantly change in the upcoming years.
