New Video Games for the Week of September 11th

NHL 14

NHL 14

NHL 14 is an ice hockey video game developed by EA Canada and published by EA Sports. It is the 23rd installment of the NHL series and will be released on September 10, 2013 in North America, and three days later in Europe as well as Australia and New Zealand. However, the game will be released on September 7, 2013 for subscribers of the EA Sports Season Ticket service. Like the NHL 13 cover, anybody could vote on the player(s) they wished to see on the cover of NHL 14. The vote started on April 22, 2013 with 60 NHL players (2 players per team) in a single-elimination voting with two players in each match-up, and was closed on June 2, 2013. Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur and Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky qualified for the final, and Brodeur was announced as the winner on June 28, 2013. NHL 14 will mark the first time since NHL 97 that a goaltender is featured on the cover (John Vanbiesbrouck was on the cover that year), as well as the first goaltender on any ice hockey video game cover since Marty Turco on 2K Sports’ NHL 2K6. Jonas Hiller was featured on the cover of NHL 12, but only in PAL regions. NHL 14 has overhauls to two game engines, based on other sports titles developed by EA Canada. The collision physics are now powered by the same core technology behind the FIFA Player Impact Engine. For more realistic fights, the game employs the new Enforcer Engine based on the Fight Night series. In addition, the True Performance Skating engine got some more improvements, and the game has a new deking system. The game’s Be a Pro career mode now has off-the-ice interactions to dictate the player’s overall legacy. NHL 14 will also feature a modernized version of NHL ’94, called NHL ’94 Anniversary mode, featuring current rosters and updated graphics to commemorate the game’s 20th anniversary.
