Free EA Sports UFC 3 Open Beta Now Available To Download

The publisher has often been criticized in the past; but with the recent release of Star Wars: Battlefront II and the many controversies that have followed the company has had it rough to say the very least. A brand-new player fresh out of the tutorials, can dump $1,000 into the game, acquire the rarest loot drops and immediately jump into online competition with a beastly custom fighter that has an exceedingly large health pool, vastly improved endurance, and substantially stronger strikes than the average player who simply pays the $60 price of admission.

However, what they and other sites fail to clarify is that this is only in Ultimate Team mode, the equivalent of FUT. PS4 players can download it here, while Xbox One players can download it here. If you just want to spar against other fighters online, Quick Fight is there for you.

Not that the whole concept behind Ultimate Team, and loot boxes in general, isn't horribly cynical and predatory, but this does seem very much a case of players paying their money and taking their chance. Fans can download and play the beta right now through Monday, December 4 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Practice will let you, well, practice without worrying about winning or losing. Like FIFA Ultimate Team, the microtransactions in UFC 3 are limited to its Ultimate Team mode in which you can improve your squad of fighters via in-game card packs. Hopefully the character creation tool gives you plenty of options to create yourself, or an ideal version of yourself. It includes over 5,000 new animations that has been built from the ground up. We welcome constructive feedback, and thank everyone playing the beta for providing us with vital information to make the game as fun and engaging as possible for our fans.
