Not to be left out of the hockey news today, Electronic Arts announced today that their hockey title, NHL 10, is also available in store today world-wide for the PS3 and Xbox 360. If you're wondering, the other hockey game released today was 2K Sports' NHL 2K10.
NHL 10's new gameplay features include first-person fighting, all-new board play, Battle for the Cup and Be A Tough Guy modes. NHL 10 features more than 200 gameplay refinements that replicate the finesse of hockey and deliver the most responsive entry in the series. EA is quick to remind us that the franchise has won 19 sports game of the year awards since 2007.
A new first-person fighting engine enables players to trade punches with an NHL tough guy. Feel what it’s like to be on the ice in the skates of an NHL player to throw and dodge punches. Winning one-on-one battles for possession of the puck along the boards is now a test of will and skill. Utilizing an all-new board physics engine, players can use their body to shield the puck on the boards and then kick-pass it to teammates.
Play with injuries, intimidate the opposing team, line-match to shut down superstars all in front of frenzied crowds with storylines that carry across the entire series. Plus, all-new interactive crowds bring the emotion of playoff hockey to life with towel-waving fans, glass bangers and crowds that react to the action on the ice. Players can one-time loose pucks, score from their knees, knock pucks out of the air and lift a leg to fake a shot on goal -- just like real-world.
