EA‘s NHL series has brought us plenty of gameplay innovations, so much so that it caused 2k Sports‘ NHL titles to become extinct. Now, with NHL 12‘s additions of allowing for loose pucks when you wind up for the shot and players being hit into the benches, helmets flying loose and even goalies becoming more active in the play and allowing them to be hit instead of being a brick wall, we ask EA Sports, what can they come up with next?
That’s where NHL 13 comes in and it looks like they’re planning something big. The Road to NHL 13‘s video series from part 1 have been teasing some of the innovations I’ve mentioned earlier. In part 2 real world physics are mentioned as this is one of the first team games to offer them.
Check out the teaser below.
What do you think the next innovation will be? Let us know in the comments below. NHL 13 will release on September 11th, 2012.
