EA Sports announced today that its hocky sim game NHL 12 will be released on September 13 in North America and September 9 in Europe for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The game was featured in the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
mong the new features is the long-waited ability to hit the goalies. The goalies will also be able to fight each other. The Be A Pro mode has been improved; players will now get tasks from coaches and execute them. The physics engine has been changed, with more realistic hits with helmets coming off, knuckleball shots, shattered glass, and more improved puck movements. The players will be able to play the NHL Winter Classic under snowfall at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field as 70,000+ rabid fans provide inspiration by cheering while donning Winter Classic gear. An all-new feature, the Action Tracker, tracks the game’s every movement.
