UFC 5 is just a day away and fans want to know if the new title will be coming to PS4.
UFC 5, the next installment in the MMA series, comes with new modes, improved graphics and a roster full of the best fighters in the world. After a successful but controversial UFC 294, the game aims to bring all MMA fans back into the Octagon on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
But will players on current-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4 have access to UFC 5?
No, UFC 5 will not be released on PS4. Unfortunately, UFC 5 is only available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for all current-gen users.
In an exclusive interview with DexertoUFC 5 developer Nate McDonald revealed the reasons behind releasing the game only on next-gen consoles.
“The main reason for this is that the team really wanted to focus on making the UFC 5 experience the best possible experience.” [next] “Generation consoles,” McDonald explained, “so players can experience the truly hyper-realistic character representations, facial movements of their favorite fighters, and next-level environmental fidelity.” And the highest resolution possible.”
In other words, the game was developed specifically for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S and will therefore not be released for PlayStation 4.
No, UFC 5 does not support cross-play or cross-progression. Players on PlayStation 5 cannot play with their friends on Xbox Series X|S. They also cannot continue their progress from one platform to another.
Without crossplay, players will be limited to who they can play UFC 5 with on launch day.
UFC 5 launches on Friday, October 27, 2023. Those who pre-ordered the game can now pre-load UFC 5 on either PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S, so you can get started as soon as it goes live.
