NHL 14 News Post

EA Sports has released their schedule of things to come for NHL 14. Tomorrow we'll see a collision physics blog and Developer Diary. Check out the rest of the schedule below.

May 2 – NHL® Collision Physics

Developed from the same core technology that powers the EA SPORTS FIFA critically-acclaimed Player Impact Engine, NHL® Collision Physics introduces bigger, more thrilling hits, and truer-to-life collisions. A new left-stick control scheme makes delivering a game-changing hit simpler and more rewarding than ever.

Mid-May – One-Touch Dekes/True Performance Skating
  • One-Touch Dekes – Experience what it feels like to be a superstar through a new, more responsive deking system controlled only with the left stick and one-button. From beginner to advanced gamers, the system allows for quicker reactive dekes and intuitive combination dekes, creating more moves than ever before.
  • True Performance Skating – Built on the breakthrough innovation that introduced physics-based skating and over 1,000 new skating animations to the EA SPORTS NHL franchise. The second year of the True Performance Skating features improved acceleration, explosive first-strides, quicker pivots and enhanced lateral skating, resulting in greater player responsiveness and unprecedented control.
Early June – Enforcer Engine

There is a code in hockey, when it's broken you have to respond. A first for the NHL franchise, Fight Night technology delivers a new 3rd person experience, physics-based punch targeting and player size differentiation to every fight, creating the most authentic and electrifying experience yet.

It's not so much that the hitting needs to be fixed, but rather that it works and responds with sliders. Looking forward to tomorrow none the less

Haha, no, the hitting absolutely needs to be fixed. It's terrible. Horrible, horrible animation. Terrible physics, players BOUNCING off of the ice. Uber-unrealistic collisions. Ya, it needs an overhaul. It's not a debate.

I am very worried about this new dekin system. how are they going to keep all the dekes with this one touch system? A lot of dekes are much more complicated than that. I hope they didn't ruin one of the best parts of the whole game.
