In a groundbreaking collaboration, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) and UFC, the leading mixed martial arts organization under TKO Group Holdings (NYSE: TKO), have unleashed EA SPORTS UFC 5 globally on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. The latest installment marks a historic moment as it debuts on the powerful Frostbite Engine, delivering unparalleled detail in fighter likenesses and a seamless 60 frames-per-second performance.

UFC 5 introduces an unprecedented level of realism, depicting damage in visceral detail with over 64,000 facial damage combinations, fluid physics, and dynamic blood and sweat particle systems. The game's Real Impact System's Authentic Damage feature intricately reflects the consequences of in-fight injuries, impacting a fighter's striking and blocking accuracy based on compromised vision or hindered mobility.

"UFC 5 has the most advanced features that we’ve ever seen in a combat sports title, and EA has taken every aspect of this game to the next level," expressed UFC SVP of Global Consumer Products Tracey Bleczinski. She added, "With every new iteration of the EA SPORTS UFC franchise, our goal is to create a fun and entertaining game that offers greater realism and a deeper, more engaging UFC experience."

Nate McDonald, Lead Producer of UFC 5, echoed the sentiment, stating, "Frostbite and the Real Impact System are game changers, and when combined with the debuts of Cinematic K.O. Replay, Seamless Submissions, and a real-world powered Fight Week experience, UFC 5 is as real as it gets.”

The game comes loaded with exciting features, including the Cinematic K.O. Replay, presenting fight-ending moments with intense visuals and enhanced excitement. The Seamless Submissions mechanic revolutionizes the grappling system, offering quicker transitions and a more authentic ground experience.

UFC 5 also introduces a Fight Week feature, closely connected to real-life UFC events, as well as an Online Career Mode with skill-based matchmaking, division progression, and title chases across four divisions. The game further enhances realism with Doctor’s Checks and Stoppages, introducing strategic challenges for players under increased pressure.

New strike animations, hit reactions, and Alter Egos—depicting fresh versions of top fighters—complete the robust suite of features in EA SPORTS UFC 5, making it the most immersive and authentic MMA gaming experience to date.
