Last year's professional fighting game EA Sports UFC, released only for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, is expanding to new platforms. Electronic Arts on Tuesday released a mobile version of the game for iOS and Android phones and tablets. The free game is available now on iTunes and Google Play.
EA Sports UFC for mobile was developed by EA Canada in partnership with the team that developed the EA Sports UFC console version. The mobile version makes use of the console edition's codebase to offer "HD-quality visuals," Electronic Arts said today in a press release.
