EA Sports UFC video shows off first gameplay

As part of its Gamescom presentation yesterday, Electronic Arts gave a first glimpse of pre-alpha footage for EA Sports UFC. While it's still early, the presentation showed off some of the features planned for next year.

In the video, EA makes a point of showing the "real-time exertion," which equates to showing the fighters get all red and veiny when executing a hold, and "full body deformation," which means the bodies press against each other and reshape slightly. Of course, all that is just in service of making the fights look more real, so you can enjoy the best possible approximation of large men beating the crap out of each other. It's due for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year.
