UFC 4 (EA Sports)

EA Sports UFC 4 is a mixed martial arts fighting game based on the mixed martial arts promotion Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). This game features a lot of different game modes, including a very interesting career mode which serves as an onboarding experience that will teach you the basic four MMA disciplines (boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and jiujitsu).

This variety of game modes translates into a lot of complex menus and on-screen content which has serious implications regarding Localization.

At EA Madrid, we were in charge of providing Localization support for complex languages like Japanese, Korean, Russian, Simplified and Traditional Chinese. 


Worked as Localization Software Engineer analyzing the state of the UI system in the earliest phases of the development to provide feedback about potential issues regarding Localization and fixing layout bugs for the languages mentioned above.


One of the most remarkable experiences for me in this project was that I had the opportunity to extend the functionality of the Engine's Font Loading System, which reduced significantly the impact of complex languages on the Localization side.




UFC 4 is the last release of the acclaimed UFC's saga, published by EA Sports.
