EA Sports MMA
Live & online
MMA has become very popular & EA Sports naturally developed a console game for this sport. Console games are much more than solitary experiences today, so our brief for this project involved a lot of community features. The highlight was the concept of live broadcasts. Users could register to participate in live in-game fights against other users that were then streamed & commentated on the website. The whole experience felt very close to the TV sports broadcasts we know, but with the difference that the graphics were game-graphics & the players with sitting at home at their consoles. In addition to this full live-stream system, users could share highlights of their fights, as well as custom-created fights, & battle for the top positions on the global leaderboards.
