Game is out June 17 for PS4 and Xbox One

Legendary martial artist Bruce Lee will be a playable character in EA Sports UFC and with that knowledge, I can't imagine why you'd choose to play as anyone else.

Now, EA is taking the usual "pre-order the game for access" route but, thankfully, Lee is not restricted to customers who reserve the game -- they're just getting him quicker. Everyone else will need to clear the game on pro difficulty or higher, unlocking Lee for play in the Flyweight, Bantamweight, Featherweight, and Lightweight divisions.

"The EA Sports UFC development team has been incredible to work with, and they've done a great job capturing the look and feel of my father," said Shannon Lee. "I think people will love getting a chance to fulfill a fight fantasy by playing Bruce Lee in the new UFC game."

Here's a new trailer for EA Sports UFC with a few seconds of footage showcasing Bruce Lee:

Damn. Started my last post about EA Access by admitting I keep forgetting the service exists, so it'd be poor form to do that again despite my continued forgetfulness. And now I've muddied this post by calling attention to th...
Usually when I'm watching two grown men beat each other up, their names are Ryu and Ken. I am a fan of a good fight in games, but aside from the occasional boxing match I have never been very interested in MMA. After watching trailers for EA Sports UFC, I figured now might be the time to start to learn the sport through the game.
As Stroke 9 once inquired, how many people want to kick some ass? If your answer is a resounding "I do! I do!," you have anger issues. Also, you might enjoy knowing that there's an imminent demo for EA Sports UFC. The bone-br...
The game does look pretty impressive, but is it just me or does the whole thing sort of lack grace? The fighters seem a little more awkward and stilted than I would like. Of course, just because there isn't lifelike fidelity doesn't mean it doesn't play well (Dale was impressed with it). Just the sequence around 40 seconds looks a bit goofy.
My gut reaction to hearing that Bruce Lee would be playable in EA Sports UFC was "Huh? That's a bit odd." In recent weeks, I've come around to find his inclusion to be in good fun. If you remain unconvinced, here's a video i...
When I previewed EA Sports UFC last E3 my intent wasn't to write erotica, but I did, a little. Similarly, my intent when I watched this UFC trailer wasn't to focus on the highly detailed, true-to-life nipple recreation on ea...
