It’s a big day for announcements when it comes to EA Sports UFC, with EA revealing that the game will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on June 17th in North America and June 20th in Europe.
The other big news is that Bruce Lee will be a playable fighter in the game, and can be used across four different weight classes. To get access to Bruce Lee, you’ll either need to pre-order the game or, after buying EA Sports UFC, complete career mode at Pro difficulty.

Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee’s daughter, talked about his inclusion in the game:
I am so excited about this opportunity to bring my father back to videogames! I’m thrilled that fans can now interact with him in a new way. The EA Sports UFC development team has been incredible to work with, and they’ve done a great job capturing the look and feel of my father. I think people will love getting a chance to fulfill a fight fantasy by playing Bruce Lee in the new UFC game.
UFC President Dana White added:
There’s no debate, Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts. He believed not one style of fighting was the best and that you had to have a little piece of everything to be a complete fighter. He was proven right when the first UFC event took place in 1993.
Brian Hayes, Creative Director, also said:
It has always been part of our vision to have Bruce Lee, the most iconic martial artist of all time, in the first ever EA Sports UFC. The team is very excited and tremendously honored to have the privilege of bringing Bruce Lee to life in our game. We’ve been working closely with the Bruce Lee team to ensure we represent the legend with as much visual and gameplay fidelity as possible.
