On top of the monthly free games with Xbox Live Gold, members are also treated to Free play Days – where an Xbox game goes free for a set period of time. From 12:01am PDT Tuesday, August 15 until 11:59pm PDT Monday, August 21 you can download and play UFC 2 until your heart’s content. For a limited time during and following the event, you can also purchase the full game for a whopping 75% off the asking price!
Those savvy enough to take advantage of EA Access and the games in the vault, UFC 2 has been part of the collection for a while… I recommend you subscribe asap, the vault is excellent value for money and you also get additional savings when purchasing EA games and DLC digitally.
The week began with three new additions to EA access with the Mass Effect trilogy but it seems EA weren’t finished with the update to the EA Access Vault. As of yesterday, Mirror’s Edge and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst joined the Vault, and as of today UFC 2 does.
[Edit] The previously mentioned Skate 3 has joined the ever growing list of backwards compatible titles, but is currently not in the EA Access Fault.
Both Catalyst and UFC 2 are relatively new titles, so it’s a great boon to see them hit the Vault so early. Moreover, our very own Rich Berry gave Catalyst a whopping 8/10 in his review, stating that:
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst mixes open world mechanics from many other titles in the genre and lovingly wraps it in the slick style of the City of Glass. It looks stunning and runs smoothly…
Meanwhile, our own Derek McRoberts gave UFC 2 a staggering 8.9/10 in his review, stating:
If you have any interest in realistic fighting games, UFC2 is a sound investment I can’t recommend enough.
Indeed, if you’ve got EA Access we can’t recommend picking these title up enough.
What other EA titles would you like to see in the Vault? Why not tell us in the comments below.
Ah, Conor McGregor. Certifiable ( I’ll let you tell him) but massively respected in the UFC Octagon. The current UFC Featherweight Champion obviously features heavily in the upcoming follow-up to the hugely successful UFC. Imaginatively titled UFC 2.
EA Sports are ramping up the smack-talk by releasing a new official gameplay trailer for UFC 2. This sequel will feature an all new Knockout Physics System.
It invites all budding fighters to step into the Octagon and experience the thrill of finishing the fight.
Coming to Xbox One in the Spring this year, UFC 2 hopes to bring the walk along with the talk. Maybe you’ll get to land one on Conor himself.
