A mobile version of EA Sports UFC, the first UFC video game from EA Sports, is now available worldwide on Android and iOS, publisher Electronic Arts announced today.

EA had previously soft-launched the game two months ago in Canada, Singapore, South Korea and Russia. Prior to today's global launch, it had racked up more than 2 million downloads, according to EA.

EA Sports UFC on mobile was developed by EA Canada, the same studio that made the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game that launched last June. The developers of the mobile version "worked in partnership" with the console team, according to a press release from EA, but they're somewhat different experiences. This isn't the first mobile version of a fighting game from EA: The company previously released iOS versions of 2010's EA Sports MMA and 2011's Fight Night Champion.

EA Sports UFC mobile lets you choose from a roster of over 70 UFC fighters and level them up as you play, unlocking special moves and new opponents with the coins you earn. In addition, you can play along with real-world bouts in live events for exclusive rewards. The free-to-play title offers in-app purchases of a currency known as "gold" in amounts ranging from $1.99 to $99.99.

You can download EA Sports UFC for smartphones and tablets from the App Store or Google Play, and check out a trailer above. For more on the game, check out our review of the console version, which is available free to EA Access subscribers, and see the gameplay video below.
