UFC 4 Update 6.0 Live With New Fighters and Patch Notes

EA Sports has released a new update, with patch notes, for UFC 4 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. Most notably, the update adds two brand new licensed fighters, Alex Perez and Michael Chandler, with the latter proving to be a bit controversial not only because he's never fought in the UFC, but because he's getting in the game before many other ranked fighters.

In addition to this, the update comes with a plethora of updates to gameplay, modes, movesets, and even fighter likeness. Of all this, EA chose to highlight the changes it's made to knockouts based on community feedback. With the update, EA has added something it calls "Lights Out," which will occur when you KO an opponent with a high damage strike. According to EA, these knockouts come with "drastically" increased ragdoll physics and will cause an automatic and immediate finish to the fight.

Below, you can check out the update's full patch notes, courtesy of EA:
