Disponibile la demo di NHL 10


Sul marketplace di Xbox 360, esclusivamente per gli utenti Gold, è disponibile la demo del prossimo NHL 10 di EA Sports.

La migliore simulazione di hockey sul ghiaccio del mercato ritorna migliorata e carica di innovazioni inedite. Nella demo sarà possibile testare le modalità "Battle for the Cup" e "Be A Tough Guy".

La prima consente di giocare una delle partite della Stanley Cup, nello specifico il match tra Detroit e Pittsburg. Sarà possibile prendere confidenza con le nuove meccaniche della serie come la possibilità di fare falli "regolari" e di provocare il team avversario.

In "Be A Tough Guy" invece dovremo prendere le difese della superstar della nostra squadra e adempiere ad una serie di compiti inerenti al nostro ruolo.

La demo sarà disponibile anche per PS3 e per gli utenti Silver di Xbox Live a partire dal prossimo 27 Settembre.

Il comunicato stampa ufficiale come di consueto dopo il break.

25th August, 2009 – The EA SPORTS NHL franchise begins a new era with gameplay innovations that deliver a new standard of toughness and the emotion of playoff hockey on the ice and in the arena, with the launch today of its NHL 10 demo exclusively on Xbox Live Marketplace for Gold subscribers.

NHL 10, the franchise that has won 19 sports game of the year awards over the past two years, will showcase two new game modes in the demo that launches today: Battle for the Cup and Be A Tough Guy. Experience the emotion and drama of the third period of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup™ Championship between Detroit and Pittsburgh in Battle for the Cup. The new mode features playable injuries, the ability to intimidate the opposing team, and line-matching to shut down superstars all in front of frenzied towel waving crowds with storylines that carry across the entire series. Play as your favourite team’s enforcer in Be A Tough Guy, where it is your job to protect your superstars, fight when needed, and finish all checks. The enhanced Be a Pro mode also includes a prospects game before heading to the draft and watching your name appear on the NHL draft board.

Beginning today the NHL 10 demo on Xbox 360 will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace to XBOX LIVE Gold members. On August 27th it will be available to download for XBOX LIVE Silver members and for the PLAYSTATION3 at the PLAYSTATION Store.

NHL 10 features a new first-person fighting engine that 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. Plus, winning one-on-one battles for possession of the puck along the boards becomes 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. Bigger, stronger players pin opponents to the boards while fanatical fans bang on the glass, just like real life. Master the techniques of both these game-changing features with tutorials, available on the demo.

NHL 10 features more than 200 gameplay refinements that replicate the skill and finesse of hockey and deliver the most responsive and authentic action ever for the series. 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. A new 360° precision passing mechanic delivers control over the speed and direction of passes so players can bank passes off the boards or play the puck into space for teammates to skate on to it.
