Players who pre-order EA Sports’ UFC 2 will be getting exclusive, day one access to the two playable Mike Tyson characters when the game releases. While all players will have the opportunity to unlock Tyson as they work their way through the game, the trailer showcasing the fighter’s immense strength and power may just make you think twice about waiting.
Two versions will be available in UFC 2, known as ‘Iron Mike Tyson’ and ‘Legacy Mike Tyson,’ respectively. Pre-ordering the standard edition of the game will get you day one access to both, while a pre-order of the deluxe edition will see both versions available to play immediately.
Speaking excitedly of Tyson’s inclusion in the game, Creative Director Brian Hayes said the following:
When you think about the most devastating fighters of all time, Mike Tyson is either around, or at the top of everyone’s list. It’s fun to think that if MMA was as popular back when he was competing as it is today, you might have seen Tyson put on four ounce gloves and step into the Octagon. This is one of those great ‘what ifs’ that we get to create when making a game like EA Sports’ UFC 2.
Tyson himself has admitted to being a huge UFC fan, and said that he is honoured to have been given the opportunity to appear in the game.
EA Sports’ UFC 2 is available worldwide for PS4 and Xbox One from March 17th.
