A Look at Hockey IQ in NHL 13

Posted June 15th, 2012 at 3:15 pm

EA Sports has released a new video going over one of the initially announced new features for NHL 13. Hockey IQ is the new AI system for players, goalies, and team systems that governs behavior on the ice. 

A completely overhauled A.I. system, players and goalies are now fully aware of every other player on the ice, resulting in quicker, smarter and more true-to-life decision-making. In previous NHL games, players were only aware of skaters in their immediate proximity and goalies could only react to the player in control of the puck. EA SPORTS Hockey IQ also delivers the deepest and most customizable set of real-world hockey systems and strategies ever for the franchise.
