Electronic Arts announced today that EA Sports NHL 12 is now available in retail stores throughout North America.
EA Sports NHL 12 is available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, where it authentically captures hockey as it is played on the ice with over 300 game play refinements highlighted by three key innovations in Anticipation AI, Dynamic Goalies and the Full Contact Physics Engine.
Anticipation AI takes NHL 12 to the next level as players will now intuitively determine their next move by reading and anticipating the play. With the Full Contact Physics Engine, size and strength matter. NHL 12 continues to innovate by giving you true to life collisions and control over the battles in the crease.
Bigger forwards will be able to plant themselves in front of the goalie for screens and larger defensemen will be able to drive smaller forwards out of the crease. Users will be given total control, by choosing to spin off their check to get in position, or use their size and strength to overpower the opposition.
With Dynamic Goalies, goalies are live for the first time ever. Players can make contact with goalies as they crash the crease and goalies will battle through traffic in front of the net as they fight through screens to make awe-inspiring saves.
"As a winner of twenty-two sports game of the year awards, the NHL franchise has a history of producing high quality and innovative entertainment experiences and this year we have taken it to new heights. With over 300 gameplay improvements and the ability to play with some of the NHL's greatest legends, such as Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux, NHL 12 is our most exciting offering yet," says Dean Richards, General Manager Team & Action Sports, EA Sports.
NHL 12 is the second title to participate in the EA Sports Season Ticket program. Season Ticket subscribers are provided full digital access to EA Sports NHL 12 three days before retail launch.
