On top of confirming the game's release date, EA released a new cinematic trailer for EA Sports UFC 2 that shows off the game's gorgeous graphics and some of the world's best fighters. There's also a quick glimpse of EA Sports UFC 2 cover star Ronda Rousey's shocking bout with Holly Holm.

In addition, EA announced a preorder bonus package for EA Sports UFC 2.

Everyone who preorders the game will get the fighters Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba right out of the gate, as well as a mystery fighter to be named later.

"Adding them is huge, and fans are going to go nuts when we reveal who the mystery fighter is," creative director Brian Hayes said in a statement. "I can't wait."

EA Sports UFC 2 adds a new knockout physics system, new character models, and a handful of fresh modes. For more, you can watch the first gameplay here and read GameSpot's interview with Hayes.
