UFC 4 is a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting game developed by EA Vancouver and published under the EA Sports label. It was released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One on August 14, 2020.
As someone who has loved playing fighting games since International Karate and FIST II on the Commodore 64 in the 1980s, I think it’s great to see new elements such as grabbling and clinch fighting included in a video game.
UFC 4 features many different game modes. You can play solo by taking on the career mode, or you can fight other players online to test your skills once you’ve mastered the game truly.
So is UFC 4 cross-platform, meaning is UFC 4 crossplay so you can play with friends across different gaming platforms?
UFC 4 isn’t cross-platform, meaning you can’t crossplay with friends on consoles if you’re running the game on Microsoft Windows and vice versa. Likewise, UFC 4 isn’t crossplay between Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S and PS4 or PS5. However, UFC 4 is cross-gen (through backward compatibility for now), allowing players within the same console platform to play the game together.

The career mode in UFC 4 is much more robust and interesting than in UFC 3.
UFC 4 has a career mode that focuses on four important elements to keep things exciting. It’s about fighter evolution, the relationship system, the injury system, and unscripted storylines.
What happens during your career mode depends on how you perform in fights and what happens during the fights.
This means that you can form natural rivalries. You’ll need to work hard to keep improving your fighter so that you can move up the ranks. Eventually, you might be able to become a champion in the UFC.
Fighting in UFC 4 is very technical in some ways. You have different types of fighting, just like in MMA matches.
You can fight by striking while standing up, but there’s also ground-based fighting, wrestling, and jujitsu to consider. Players can attempt to knock opponents out in many ways, and there are also many ways to submit opponents.
The game has many different MMA fighters, which you can choose from. There are 229 unique fighters in this title and 81 alternate versions of fighters.
With a huge roster to play, it’ll be difficult to see everything this game offers. You’ll also be able to create your fighter for the career mode.
