Fighful Select have now reported an incredible amount of information about the upcoming game, including the changes to the engine, damage model and submission system.

– For career mode, there’s an onboarding experience that features Valentina Shevchenko. There are also online career modes.

– The rating was moved to M for Mature so they could add more realistic aspects of damage. It’s rendered in more detail. Blood pooling on the canvas and fighters played a factor as well. Compound fractures are not in UFC 5. They thought that would be gratuitous.

There will also be “alter egos” — alternate versions of fighters that can be unlocked by playing the Fight Week challenges
