EA seems to be going all out when it comes to ensuring that the roster of their upcoming UFC 2 is a star studded one. Having already announced that the game will feature ex-WWE fan favourite Phil “CM Punk” Brooks and boxing icon ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson (click on each name respectively to view our original articles), EA have now raised the stakes even further by announcing that a true martial arts legend in the form of Bruce Lee will again feature in the franchise having previously been a playable character in EA Sports UFC.
There are a number of different ways that Lee, who starred in legendary films such as Enter the Dragon, can be unlocked:
1 – Get EA SPORTS UFC 2
Fans who own EA SPORTS UFC and purchase EA SPORTS UFC 2 will get Day 1 access to Bruce Lee for FREE. Play as the martial arts legend in the Welterweight, Bantamweight, Featherweight, and Lightweight divisions.
2 – Beat Career Mode
Fire up your copy of EA SPORTS UFC 2 and start fighting! Complete Career Mode and get inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame to unlock the martial arts legend for play in the Flyweight, Bantamweight, Featherweight and Lightweight divisions. Beating career mode also unlocks legends Mike Tyson, Bas Rutten, and Kazushi Sakuraba.
