EA is pooling its resources to improve this year’s NHL sim, NHL 14, which it revealed today with a trailer.
The publisher promises much-improved player physics built from the ‘Player Impact Engine’ tech originally devised for its brilliant FIFA games.
NHL 14 will also be taking its fighting more seriously this year, with a new ‘Enforcer Engine’ which borrows tech from the Fight Night boxing series.
A new ‘Be a Pro Career Mode’, now called ‘Live the Life’, will apparently let you experience the life on of an NHL player, “now featuring on and off-ice elements”.
EA has confirmed an NHL 14 release date of September 10 in US and September 13 in Europe, coming to PS3 and Xbox 360.
