- Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of UFC 5, as it will probably be the first game in the series released on the PS5, promising enhanced graphics and overall performance.
- The PS5’s specs, including its GPU with 10.28 TFLOPS, can provide UFC 5 with incredible graphical capabilities, making it one of the best-looking games in the franchise.
- The PS5’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback in the DualSense controller could provide a groundbreaking level of immersion in UFC 5, allowing players to feel the weight and impact of their moves.
So far there is very little known about UFC 5, but with the full reveal coming shortly in September, fans are already speculating on what new features the franchise’s fifth installment will entail. From potential WWE crossovers to which fighter could grace the cover of the game, there are many possibilities that could bring UFC 5 to the next level, but the game releasing on PS5 would be the biggest upgrade for the series overall.
It’s been a while since the last UFC game was released back in 2020. In the past, the games have consistently released every two years, and such a long gap between UFC 4 and UFC 5 have many fans of the franchise begging for any kind of update, no matter how small. Although the wait has been agonizing for some fans, the good news is that UFC 5 will be the first game in the series released since the launch of the PS5. This means whatever UFC 5 holds, it will likely be better than ever thanks to the PS5’s specs.
How the PS5 Can Take UFC 5 to the Next Level
So far, the state of the game is so secretive that UFC 5 doesn’t even have a cover star yet, so any news on gameplay or mechanics remains even more of a mystery. But when it comes to the topic of graphics and overall performance, there’s no doubt that whatever UFC 5 holds, it’s highly likely that it will look leagues better than the previous four games in the franchise. The PS5 has what it takes to bring UFC 5 to life in a way the franchise has never seen before.
When it comes to a comparison of specs between the PS4 and the PS5, it’s no secret that the PS5 is a major upgrade. The increase in power and performance for the console are just a few of the many reasons the PS5 recently had its best year yet as the console has become more widely available post-pandemic. The PS5 offers the specs necessary to give UFC 5 the realism that will make many players forget that they’re playing a video game and not watching a live UFC match.
The GPU difference between the PS4 and the PS5 is astounding, and this is the major feature that could make UFC 5 like no other entry in the franchise. The GPU for the PS4 had 1.84 TFLOPS, but the GPU for the PS5 has a jaw-dropping 10.28 TFLOPS. The PS5 being able to handle that much graphical capability means that UFC 5 is set to be one of the best looking games in the franchise, bringing incredibly lifelike visuals to players’ screens. The power of the PS5’s GPU is a major asset that hopefully EA will really take into account when finishing developing the game, if it’s not already nearly finished in the first place.
The PS5’s emphasis on adaptive triggers and haptic feedback in the DualSense controller could also be groundbreaking for UFC 5. Players might feel the weight of their own moves in the tension of buttons and precise vibrations, really getting a feel for every hit they land on an opponent. EA Sports may not be interested in devoting resources to these PS5 specific versions, but it ought to for immersion’s sake.
Sports games are almost always focused on mechanics and gameplay, but working on making the games look even more realistic would be a great feature for fans to look forward to. Amazing gameplay combined with some beautifully realistic graphics and stimulating controller integration would be the perfect formula for making UFC 5 the best entry in the franchise. The speculation on what will be featured in UFC 5 has been growing since the game’s announcement, but there is at least some confidence that it is set to be one of the most immersive entries in the series.
