As of now, the main components shared with the public about UFC 5 are limited, but there are still a few aspects that have us excited over at esports.gg.

First off, the animation of the game is incredibly stylized and unique. With 60 frames per second gameplay, slowed-down shots look intense and incredibly realistic. Not only that, but everything about the game's engine seems to be in perfect order.

"That's why we took three years; we wanted to get this right," producer Nate McDonald says. "It's important to us, and it's important to our players that we give them the best experience we possibly can, especially with it being on the current-gen platforms."

The last UFC title was released back in 2020, making this the first MMA fighting game in three years.

"We really just wanted to make sure we're delivering as high quality, polished, and bug-free of an experience as possible. And that takes time, and here we are."

New character detail, shading and more are just a few parts of the game that will have players feeling like they are stepping into the ring themselves.
