The highly anticipated EA UFC game series is unveiling its fifth installment today, marking October 27, 2023, as the release date for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms. As fans and gamers alike prepare to dive into the action, it’s worth noting that while the game does bring many exciting elements to the table, it falls short in certain aspects, leaving room for further refinement and development. 

The latest installment of the game has chosen Alexander Volkanovski and Valentina Shevchenko as the featured cover fighters, and there’s also a special edition with Israel Adesanya. The game generated a substantial amount of pre-release excitement and anticipation. 

As the release date arrived, clips showcasing the gameplay started circulating on the internet, quickly gaining traction and going viral, adding to the buzz and enthusiasm among fans and gamers.

Recently, one video of Khabib Nurmagomedov from the game gathered massive attention from fight fans and gamers. According to the fans, the developers have certainly done a good job of making fighter characters in the game and Nurmagomedov is looking quite good in the game.

They’ve observed that the former lightweight champion speaks in English with a distinct accent that deviates from his usual one. This particular detail has led to moments of awkwardness and raised questions among players and fans, as it doesn’t align with what they expected from the character in the game.
