8:23 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
SI Games has announced their first non-football (soccer) release, NHL Eastside Hockey Manager, is set to be revealed for both Mac and PC this Friday, July 2. In development for two years, this officially licensed management game should give fans of hockey a chance to take control of their very own team.
Here are a few more features listed in the press release:
A beta demo of the game is available now for download from the SI Games site. This 111MB download is a six-month trial to see how you like the title. The game needs a 333MHz processor running OS X 10.3 with 256MB of RAM.
- All of the NHL™ teams and players including most player photos – managers can choose their favourite franchise and guide it to Stanley Cup™ glory.
- The complete world of hockey, featuring 18 playable leagues from across the world, incorporating more than 250 playable teams with a database of 15,000 players, coaches and staff to choose from.
- A detailed transfer system that allows users to buy, trade and select the world's top players.
- A realistic in-game engine that simulates a hockey match, complete with live commentary, allowing managers to view and analyse player ratings and statistics, a period-by-period recap and, of course, all-important match statistics including shots and goals.
- Complex player personalities, which combine with true-to-life physical and mental attributes to determine how every player feels and plays throughout each match.
- Just like real-life professional hockey, NHL™:EHM uses two separate methods to allow players to move between teams: in North America, players are usually 'traded', while European leagues use a 'transfer' system similar to that used in football.
More details about the game can be found in the rest of the announcement or on SI Games' site. Stay tuned to IMG for word as the game heads towards release.
