EA Sports demos UFC fighter emotions – video

Thursday, 20th June 2013 18:06 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

During E3, VG247 was given a demo of the facial annimations for EA Sports UFC game.

In the demo, you can see how the emotions of the fighters were captured using a 3D scan of the athletes faces and heads – in this case, Jon Jones and Benson Henderson.

The footage shown is still a work in progress and is likely to change, but listen to the game’s GM Dean Richards discuss it anyway.

The game is out next spring.

    Looking forward to seeing some bonafide gameplay footage from this.

    A fair few folks that I know who got a look at the game behind the scenes, reckon it was one of the best looking games at the show.

    Also: thanks for covering this! I know sports and even less, UFC, has any real sort of solid following on this site, so its great to see new developments posted regarding it :)

    Totally badass. I’m a huge MMA fan and love the UFC. Its just a shame I get bored with sports games and thus prob won’t play this because it looks incredible. I might even give it a go!

    Looks good, but seriously, why is it that no one can get the mouth’s right?
    It never looks realistic.
