A new patch has been released for EA Sports UFC, adding bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw, contender Takeya Mizugaki and welterweight Tyron Woodley to the roster. The patch has also improved a number of things which fans have complained about the game, with most-to-all of the changes being well received by fans in the early going.
Thanks to this Reddit user (AlcoholismIsForKids), you can read the host of changes here:
For avid EA UFC fans, the most notable changes include a new addition to the online mode, the ability to apply punches after a knockout (a lá Henderson-Bisping), and improvements in which fighters are able to do what.
With the early trailers of the game showing a fighter who is not an All-American wrestler in José Aldo throw a man a weight class above in Anthony Pettis, and to do so in a Kurt Angle-esque fashion, pointed towards an arcade-type game rather than a realistic one.
With this patch, EA have cemented their intentions for the most realistic MMA game out there, and have also added three more vital faces to the roster.
These changes may help players who have lost faith in the game pick it up again, and points towards more roster additions in the near future.
With TJ Dillashaw set to fight Renan Barao next, Tyron Woodley facing Dong Hyun-Kim and Takeya Mizugaki welcoming Dominick Cruz back to the UFC, each fighter have key fights coming up in the next couple of months.
