EA highlights NHL 13's True Performance Skating system

May 28 // Jason Cabral    @jasondcabral

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.
