UFC 4 is getting its official reveal on a stacked UFC card with three title fights.
Let’s go over everything we know about the game so far.
Latest News – First Official Screenshot Revealed & Cover Stars Confirmed?
UFC 4 may not be revealed yet, but that hasn’t stopped Microsoft from listing the Beta on their store.
The artwork with the Beta description seems to confirm Jorge Masvidal and Israel Adesanya as the cover stars for UFC 4!
Microsoft also seems to have revealed the first official screenshot of the upcoming title, which you can check out below.
We have speculation for several members of the UFC 4 roster. This includes Jorge Masvidal, Israel Adesanya, Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, Kamaru Usman, and Colby Covington.
While nothing’s confirmed, things are pointing that way.
While there is no official release date as of yet, a post for UFC 251 showed a UFC 4 logo, with an ‘official reveal’ below it, in the bottom left hand corner.
In the hype up to the main event of Usman vs Burns, expect to see some UFC footage on Saturday, 11 July.
It’s not yet known as to what type of reveal it will be.
Will we see a cinematic? Gameplay? Or perhaps a mix of both?
Let’s hope we see a release date, giving us some details on Next Gen.
We’ll be sure to update this section with the trailer as soon as we get it, most likely, as mentioned, on 11 July.
We’re still ahead of the official reveal, but we predict the title will be falling around the £40 (approx $50) mark.
Whether there will be any special editions is still to be confirmed, but as always, would be welcomed by fans!
UFC 3 had the Standard Edition, and Champions Edition, which came with a selection of extra in-game bonuses.
As with UFC 3, and many titles, we expect pre-orders to become available closer to the release date. What bonuses you’ll get for doing so are yet to be discovered!
UFC 3 came out for Xbox One and PS4, so it would make sense for this to be the case with UFC 4.
However that still leaves Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, PS5, and PC. With EA’s recent exciting cross-play announcements with various titles, could we see UFC 4 come to even more consoles than ever before?
If UFC 4 does come out for PS5 and Xbox Series X, it will be interesting to see if they will be backwards compatible.
This would mean that even without a specific next-gen release for the title, it won’t stop you playing the title on next-gen consoles.
It has been a while since the last UFC title, and the sport itself has grown considerably in popularity.
With so much going on both inside, and outside, the octagon, how will we see this reflected in the gameplay?
Press conferences, media, fighter ‘beefs’, weigh-ins and more could all potentially feature – but we’ll have to wait for the reveal to know more.
The big question is, who will be the cover star?
Conor McGregor took the position for UFC 3, but there are tons of interesting, talented and entertaining fighters in the UFC to pick from.
Everyone will have their top choice, so we’re looking forward to finding out who it will be!
Fight Night crossover?
Boxing superstars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury are reportedly featured in the upcoming UFC 4.
This is, by no means, officially confirmed, so as always we advise you to take it with a pinch of salt.
In a video on The Fight Guys YouTube Channel, Brian Mazique mentioned that both fighters could be set to feature in the MMA title, in much the same way as Mike Tyson did in UFC 3.
