EA highlights NHL 13's True Performance Skating system


8:00 PM on 05.28.2012



The NHL franchise has always done well, but some fans still feel that it's getting a bit stagnant as of late. With this next iteration in the series, EA looks to introduce a few new enhancements that should change up NHL 13's dynamics. The trailer shows off EA's new fluid player animation system called True Performance Skating, as well as it's revamped player AI, Hockey I.Q.

As far as game feature trailers, go it does a pretty good job pumping up the game with it's rock music, fancy editing and snazzy titles. I always prefer the Rockstar's approach to these types of trailers; they may turn out a little long but the added narration helps to explain the features of the game rather then just blast loud music and shiny buzz words in your face.

NHL 13 is going to be hitting the ice on September 11 2012, along with a special Stanley Cup Collector's Edition. Time to strap those skates back on, Gordie.

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.more
