Mike Tyson to make his octagon debut in EA Sports UFC 2
Tyson packs the strongest punching power in the game
EA has just announced that one of the most iconic athletes of all time, Mike Tyson, will be debuting in their upcoming game -- EA Sports UFC 2.
Players who pre-order the game will get day-one access with Tyson, while everyone else has to unlock him by progressing in the game and making it to the Hall of Fame in Career Mode. In the reveal trailer above, you can see Mike Tyson in various points of his career; however, the former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world still packs the strongest punching power of any fighter in the game .
As a huge fan of UFC, Mike Tyson expressed his gratitude for his inclusion of the game. Here's what he said:
“As a huge fan, I’m honored to be part of EA SPORTS and explore the world of mixed martial arts,” said Mike Tyson. “I follow UFC very closely and it’s going to be very cool to see how I would stack up against these amazing MMA athletes.”
In addition to Tyson, pre-ordering will also grant you day one access to Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba. Interestingly, Tyson isn't the only fighter in EA Sports UFC 2 who doesn't have an official UFC fight under his belt; CM Punk will also make his debut in the game, much to fans' displeasure.
EA Sports UFC 2 will be available on March 15 in North America and March 17 worldwide on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. EA Access members can play the full game before it’s released for a limited time and get 10% off the digital version of the game on Xbox One.
