EA Sports today..er yesterday..( a bit late sorry) released their 3rd and final video highlighting the improvements made to the latest installment of the NHL Franchise. This one highlights the newly implemented Enforcer Engine, created for use in the Fight Night franchise. These fights now have a 3rd person perspective and it will use a physics-based punch targeting. Player size differentiation, user-controlled celebrations afterwards, and damage that remains through the entirety of the game round out the litany of changes. EA announced that NHL won’t be coming to any next-gen consoles. Is this a bad thing? Maybe not. I don’t know how many next-gen titles people are going to buy right off the bat. You can only play one game at a time right? EA is doing the smart thing here. Put all your energy into this generation and make it an awesome experience.
Now that all three videos are available, here is a classic fight starring the great Patrick Roy facing off against Chris Osgood.
