EA SPORTS Launches NFL Blitz
Electronic Arts has just revealed that the all-new HD version of NFL Blitz from EA SPORTS is now available via digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
“We look forward to introducing the over-the-top football action that made NFL Blitz a classic arcade hit to a new generation of gamers," said Cam Weber, general manager of American Football for EA SPORTS in a statement. "And we are excited to deliver to fans of the original game, the new NFL Blitz complete with online features and in high definition for the first time.”
Apart from the ability to create a true dream team by collecting player cards in Elite League, the recharged NFL Blitz offers fans the opportunity to battle rivals 7-on-7, fight their way through the Blitz Gauntlet, or take over the online leader boards in Blitz Battles. NFL Blitz hits the virtual gridiron with blazing 60fps/60Hz game play, featuring the twitch game play and ultra-responsive controls of the original game, combined with all-new single-player and cooperative game modes.
Fans were given the opportunity to choose the NFL player who would become the first-ever digital cover athlete for an EA SPORTS game with NFL Blitz entering into a new era and Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was selected over fellow Pro Bowlers Roddy White and Patrick Willis. FAns exercised their right to vote for the NFL Blitz cover during the 2011 Spike "Video Game Awards," the company stated in a press release.
