With hockey season bearing down on us, 2K Sports has released information on a pair of new features that will debut in ‘NHL 2K8.’
First up is the ProStick, or simply put, the ability to stick-handle using the right analog stick. This functionality has been sorely missed for years so we applaud Visual Concepts finally including it.
The ProStick will work hand-in-hand with a new face-off interface, where stick positioning will be directly control via the right analog stick. Warnings, toss-outs, and tie-ups will all come into play. This should make face-offs require more skill to win as opposed to blind button-mashing luck.
‘NHL 2K8’ is due to arrive in stores in early September on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
