EA announces Conor McGregor as cover star for UFC 3

EA has announced that its UFC gaming franchise will continue in 2018 with UFC 3. It also announced that Conor McGregor is the cover star for UFC 3.

The Notorious, as he’s known, is the only UFC fighter to hold titles in two separate weight classes at the same time. “Two belts, two covers – EA SPORTS got it right again,” UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor said. “It’s an honor to be on the cover and I can’t wait to play the game.”

Featuring the brand-new Real Player Motion (RPM) Tech, UFC 3 will be the most fluid, responsive and best looking of all of EA’s UFC titles. Using RPM, EA has captured 5,000 new animations to allow for seamless combos and advanced strategic fighting.

UFC 3 will include a career mode in the form of the G.O.A.T. Career Mode. Players will be able to make decisions outside of the octagon including “promotional choices to build hype, gain fans, earn more cash through big contracts and capture the world’s attention.”

UFC 3 will be available for PS4 and Xbox One on February 2, 2017.
