This agonizing level of visual detail is just one of the many ways that EA Canada aims to make players feel the fight in the team's first official UFC licensed game, EA Sports UFC. It launches this spring, and it's coming to PS4.

We went hands-on with an early build of EA Sports UFC running on PS4. What we played showcased the developer's commitment to creating an authentic MMA fighter. And since the team is comprised of Fight Night series veterans, they're bringing a vast body of knowledge to EA Sports UFC.

Because EA Sports UFC is built for PS4′s hardware, there's no legacy code to compromise the visual realism. Each fighter has been scanned in using EA's proprietary technology, reflecting exact body dimensions, tattoos, and skin tone in painstakingly detailed character models....

On a much less scary front is Surge Deluxe, a new and improved version of developer Futurlab's acclaimed PlayStation Mobile game. Surge takes popular match-three gameplay and adds an electrifying twist for added depth and bright results. See where you can place on the online leaderboards.

There's more too, including brand new clean 'em up Dustforce, the second episode of The Wolf Among Us, an open beta for high-flying Ace Combat Infinity and a range of great discounts in our new February sale that begins today.
