EA have unveiled the next installment in the NBA franchise. NBA Elite 11 will revolutionize the basketball simulation market as it’ll feature a brand new control scheme, new technology and real-time physics system:
“We plan to profoundly evolve the interactive basketball experience in a way that the category has not seen for a decade,” said Peter Moore, President for EA Sports. “In NBA ELITE 11, we’ll introduce a gameplay experience that gives fans the control on the court that they have been begging for in a basketball game for years,” he added.
The new control scheme is dubbed as ‘Hands-On Control’ and will allow one-to-one responsiveness of a player’s movement and actions on the court. This will give you additional control of players rather than the predetermined control system of previous years.
Each player will move independently of each other and remove the need for two-man interactions. The new skill-based shooting system will require much more accuracy.
EA are hoping to re-invent the series with the new control methods which will ensure that the game is a real simulation of basketball rather than a typical video game interpretation.
NBA Elite 11 will be out on PS3 and Xbox 360 in October.
