EA Explains How Ultimate Team Works For One-On-One UFC Fights

In FIFA, NHL, NBA Live, and Madden, Ultimate Team is about using cards to field a squad with impressive skill and synergy. When EA announced it would be adding the mode to UFC, it wasn’t entirely clear just how it would work.

To answer that question, EA has released a new video walking us through what to expect. Players will build a team of five fighters to begin with using the creation tools. You can put your fighters in any weight class, and you’ll want to spread them out. 

Cards represent four different things. Moves are culled from real UFC fighters, and some premium cards are signature moves. Attributes allow you to master specific fighting styles. There are also perks and consumables that you’ll find in packs. Some items are weight class specific.

Far Cry Primal Feels Like Where The Series Was Always Meant To Go

about X hours ago from

When I played (and loved) Far Cry 3, it was in spite of some glaring flaws. I adored the open world, but the story was a gaping hole in the experience. Except for Vaas. Oh, Vaas.

Far Cry's writing has always tended toward the summer blockbuster. The characters are often caricatures, wreaking havoc across the lush, far-flung locales for which the series is known. Despite menacing characters and perilous journeys, the franchise has never embraced its potential gravitas.

Ubisoft has long envisioned Far Cry as "Skyrim with guns." It's never quite reached that lofty goal, but shedding the firearms has done wonders for pushing the series toward its ambition of competing with Bethesda's best.
