UFC 5 is not yet available to pre order but things could change as soon as the UFC 5 Cover Athlete is announced.

Generally, the reveals of the game itself and the cover athlete coincide with the title going live for pre order on various platforms.

EA previously stated that UFC 4 and NHL 21 will run as they do on the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro and will not receive next-gen upgrades.

Don't worry previous-gen players, we also expect EA to release UFC 5 on the PS4 and Xbox One too!
