Career Mode

The most popular UFC game mode is back and UFC 4 gives you more control over your career than ever.

Interactive Social Media

The new interactive social media system allows you to respond to social media callouts from other fighters.

Your relationship with that fighter will vary depending on your response.

Respond positively and create a friendship that might result in training discounts and more, or respond negatively and create a rivalry to build hype for a fight.

Decline Fight Offers

For the first time ever, gamers will be able to turn down fight offers from the UFC.

If you don’t think you’re ready to face a certain calibre of opponent, or your fighter needs more time to recover after their last fight, then declining a fight offer could be the best option.

Of course, if you turn down too many fight offers then there will be consequences and the UFC may even rescind your contract and relegate you back to the minor leagues!

We now know which platforms UFC 4 will be made available on.


UFC 4 will launch on PS4 and Xbox One – at this time it does not look as if the game will be coming to PC or Nintendo Switch.


UFC 4 Creative Director, Brian Hayes, had the following to say regarding the game’s availability on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Please see below for a quote from UFC 4’s Brian Hayes. 

“If both consoles support backwards compatibility for Gen 4 games then, presumably, fans will be able to play UFC 4 on their Gen 5 consoles. 

We haven’t yet had an opportunity to test this out and determine whether any additional development work is required to leverage Backward Compatibility, but we hope to see UFC 4 playable on Gen 5 hardware using that feature.” 

So it sounds like with any luck UFC 4 will be available on next-gen consoles – head here to find out more about UFC 4 on next-gen.
