  • Creative Attacks and Defensive Skill Sticks Coming with NHL 18

    EA Sports details the new "Creative Attack" controls and the new "Defensive Skill Stick" that is coming with NHL 18.

    NHL 18 is upping player’s game on both sides of the puck with Creative Attack controls and an all-new Defensive Skill Stick. Creative Attack gives players the moves to execute Top 10-worthy offensive plays, inspired by what’s being seen in the new NHL. Players can implement one-handed dekes, between-the-legs shots and passes and much more. On defense, NHL 18 introduces the new Defensive Skill Stick, giving defensive players the tools to counter the new skill moves with extended poke checks, targeted stick control, and stick-sweeping to cover a zone.

    Players won’t be the only ones using these controls though, as the new Creative Teammate AI leverages all the same deking and passing tools to give opponents a true run for their money. AI Teammates will create smarter plays, leading to more effective moves up and down the ice.

    Finally, authentic 3-on-3 matches in EA SPORTS Hockey League introduce a whole new arena with more open ice and risk-vs-reward strategic gameplay.

    You can check out the new ways with which you can handle a stick in the latest gameplay features trailer that went live today. NHL 18 will be released on September 15. There is a beta coming soon, which you can sign up for on their website.

    I'll mention here and now that the news posts that went up near daily will more than likely be coming to an end soon.

    I'd rather I shifted focus to more original content than copy and pasting...
