EA Sports UFC 5 Gameplay Trailer Receives Mixed Reactions from Fans

Fans of the popular franchise, EA Sports UFC, have been eagerly awaiting the release of UFC 5, which is set to come out in October of this year. However, after the recent gameplay trailer release by the developers, it seems that not all fans are pleased with what they've seen so far.

While UFC 4, released in 2020, was generally well-received by the community, fans were hoping for even more improvements and exciting new features in the upcoming installment. The gameplay trailer for EA Sports UFC 5 showcased new damage mechanics and other realistic elements, but some fans have expressed disappointment with the visuals of the game.

One aspect that has garnered criticism is the use of MMA legend Conor McGregor's infamous leg injury to highlight limb damage in the game. Fans felt that this choice was unnecessary and insensitive. Additionally, some fans felt that the character models and animations in the trailer were too similar to those in UFC 4, despite the use of the new Frostbite Engine.

While EA Sports has yet to address these concerns, fans have been vocal on social media about their dissatisfaction with the game's visuals and movement mechanics. Some fans have even called for another developer to take over the franchise from EA.

As the release of UFC 5 approaches, it will be interesting to see if any changes or improvements are made based on the feedback from fans.
