"This is a great moment for video games and for Mixed Martial Arts,” said Dean Richards, the General Manager of EA Sports UFC.
Following the recent creation of the women's bantamweight division, female fighters have been receiving more recognition in the Octagon and beyond. For the first time, EA Sports is releasing a UFC game with playable women characters. Two bantamweight fighters will headline the additions to the roster in EA Sports UFC: current champion Ronda Rousey and championship contender Miesha Tate.
EA Sports UFC will release in the first quarter of 2014 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
