NHL 14 Collision Physics shown off in new gameplay trailer
EA Sports has released a new trailer for NHL 14 showing off the game's new collision physics. I know we were teased with a screenshot of the new engine last month, but today's video offers us a first-look at the collision physics in action. In addition to seeing NHL 14's adrenaline-pumping gameplay, producer Sean Ramjagsingh explains to us the technology that went into creating the new physics in the game.
The all-new NHL Collision Physics is built from FIFA's award-winning player impact engine, but has been evolved to fit the aggressive nature of hockey. Collisions now take into account player size, speed, momentum, and body position into account to deliver more realistic hits. This should create more authentic reactions from huge hits, glancing blows, limb-on-limb collisions and everything in between, all based on new rag doll physics.
NHL 14 is due out on September 10, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Voting is currently underway for the game's cover athlete.
