NHL franchise producer Sean Ramjagsingh returns in the latest dev diary for NHL 14 to talk about one-touch dekes and gameplay balancing, including the addition of defensive strafing.
“The new one-touch dekes are intuitive: simply press the left bumper, or L1, and select a direction with the left stick,” describes Ramjagsingh in the video. “See space to the right? Simply hold that direction and press the button. Need to toe-drag around a defender? Hold that direction and tap deke.”
According to Ramjagsingh, pivots and high-speed turning have also been improved from NHL 13.
NHL 14 skates onto PS3 and Xbox 360 September 10 in North America, September 13 e’rywhere else in the world.
