This is NHL 13
NHL 13 has undergone some serious improvements for this iteration, the biggest being True Performance Skating, which has revolutionized the in-game skating mechanics in NHL 13. Driven by real-world physics and more than 1,000 new gameplay animations NHL 13 authentically replicates the momentum, explosiveness and top-end speed of real NHL players. Combine True Performance Skating with the control offered by the Skill Stick and NHL 13 finally gives gamers access to the entire toolkit of an NHL player.
The demo features access to four different modes – Play Now, NHL Moments Live, Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) and Free Skate – and the ability to earn up to three HUT Item Packs to use in the full version of NHL 13.
A completely overhauled A.I. system, players are now fully aware of every other player on the ice, resulting in quicker, smarter and more true-to-life decision-making. EA SPORTS Hockey IQ also delivers the deepest and most customizable set of real-world hockey systems and strategies ever for the franchise.
NHL®13 now features the most athletic goalies ever seen in a video game. In the first period or with the game on the line, your favorite netminders scramble with more versatility and anticipate like never before with Complete Limb Movement.
The franchise’s most popular mode goes connected allowing gamers to manage, play, or coach with and against friends in their own 30 team human controlled league. GM’s can also take their experience with them with a mobile companion app, ensuring that they’ll never miss a single moment.
Presentation elements are as important to bringing an authentic hockey experience to your favorite console as gameplay. In NHL 13, we wanted to make sure the presentation overhaul matched the gameplay innovations we’d undertaken this year. From lighting, to stadiums, to player models, our goal was to ensure that the game looks as good as it feels. Read our in depth blog for full details.
