Ronda Rousey & Miesha Tate Show The Submission Gameplay In EA UFC

EA has released another gameplay video for the upcoming UFC game, this time showing major rivals Misha Tate and Ronda Rousey entering a submission battle. In a way the submission mini game here, where you have to move you analog stick in the correct direction, is very similar to the one that was in EA MMA a few years back. However that was purely for the chokes, while button mashing was used to escape or put pressure on submissions like arm bars.


If I’m honest I’m a bit on the fence about this submission overlay as it could be rather confusing. I was a fan of the previous UFC Undisputed overlay where you had to chase or move away from bars around an octagon, which you can see in video below. As your player’s stamina wore out so did your ability to escape the chase.

It could be a very good design choice or a bad one but we won’t really know until EA UFC releases in a few weeks.
