Electronic Arts has released a new video for NHL 12 which will be shipping on September 9th in Europe and September 13th in North America. In the revamped Be a Pro mode, you will experience the pursuit of greatness and legendary moments in your playing career, shatter historic records and cement yourself in NHL history. Additionally, the better you play, the more ice time you'll get where you can simulate to your next shift so you're always on the ice as you play out your entire career in pursuit of the Stanley Cup. With the NHL 12 Full Contact Physics Engine, you will experience the skill and aggression of hockey from shattered glass to flying helmets to knocking players over the boards and into the bench; crash the crease too hard and you'll knock the net off and send the goalie flying. Size and physicality will be emphasized as bigger players will be able to throw their weight around as they screen the goalie and battle in front of the net.
