Here’s some great news for Basketball fans strewn all across the globe. EA Sports announces a new iteration of the acclaimed series entitled NBA Elite 11. The latest title will hit the gaming scene packed with a new control scheme, new technology base and real-time physics system.
The NBA Elite 11 game includes some new innovative alterations with respect to gameplay. There is a new Hands-On Control scheme that brings about one-to-one responsiveness to actions and movements. This can be used with all the player’s defensive and offensive moves. This includes dunks, dribble moves, fadeaways, blocks, steals, mid-air adjustments and drives to the basket.
David Littman, Creative Director, NBA Elite 11 revealed, “NBA Elite 11 will give gamers the same skill set that a pro basketball player has at his disposal. This is the first basketball simulation videogame where you are controlling every movement, dribble move, shot, dunk, lay-up, steal and block in real time with one-to-one control. You’re no longer going to push a button and watch the computer generate a long animation sequence. It is like being on a basketball court with an amazing set of skills. This is going to change what people have come to expect from a basketball simulation videogame.”
Peter Moore, President, EA Sports stated, “We plan to profoundly evolve the interactive basketball experience in a way that the category has not seen for a decade. 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.”
The real-time physics system embedded in NBA Elite 11 allows gamers to now move independently and completely does away with the two-man interactions which were previously seen employed in earlier basketball simulation games. The game also comprises of a new skill-based shooting system which works on accurate user input and is based on the player’s position on the court.
NBA Elite 11 is scheduled to hit the PS3 and Xbox 360 by October this year for a price of $59.99.
