EA Sports introduces “Notorious Edition” of UFC 3

October 2, 2018

The UFC and EA Sports announced a special edition of the EA Sports UFC game with a “Notorious Edition” in honor of the return to the Octagon of this Saturday night.

Via press release:

The Notorious Edition is available for a limited time and features exclusive cover art, as well as bonus in-game content including 500 UFC Ultimate Team Points, five Notorious Ultimate Team Packs and the choice of one “Champion” fighter – McGregor, former two-time UFC welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St. Pierre, former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, former UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk or former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva – all for $29.99 USD. Players looking for a reason to get into the game Bleacher Report calls a “can’t miss” and UPROXX remarks is “truly outstanding” should act fast, as the Notorious Edition is only available through Monday, October 15.

In addition to the launch of the UFC 3 Notorious Edition, all current EA SPORTS UFC 3 owners will also get access to new fighters, including a Hall of Fame version of former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, as well as UFC athletes Sean O’Malley and Israel Adesanya. This new content update is available today to all EA SPORTS UFC 3 owners to download for free. Fans can also check out the EA SPORTS UFC 3 website right now to see the collective community results of the in-game matchup between UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and McGregor, including which fighter has won more times, the breakdown of TKOs, submissions and decisions, and more. The official EA SPORTS UFC 3 fight simulation of UFC 229 will be released on Friday, October 5.

Payout Perspective:

You’ll have to be a true gamer and/or McGregor fan to want this edition.  Also, if you already purchased the UFC 3 game, why get this one?  I assume for the extra fighters and features.  But, the new edition keeps the game associated with the McGregor brand in the news and EA hopes that the edition will spark more sales of the game.
