NHL 13 Video Showcases New Skating Engine

Posted May 19th, 2012 at 3:00 pm

EA Sports has released a new video for NHL 13 which arrives in sync with the feature news announced yesterday. The game will be receiving a brand new physics-driven skating engine which is put on heavy display in the trailer – though the footage in this form doesn’t make it readily apparent what the end benefit will be nor put it in the context where it can actually be evaluated. 

A game-changing innovation for the franchise that adds physics-driven skating and over 1000 new animations. True Performance Skating authentically replicates the explosiveness, momentum and top end speed displayed by today’s NHL players. True Performance Skating combined with the Skill Stick, finally gives gamers access to the entire toolset of an NHL player, delivering unprecedented control and unlocking a level of creativity never before possible in a hockey videogame.
