Packed with New Features
QUICKHIT NFL Football launches this week with hundreds of improvements since the company released its beta last October. New additions include: Color commentary from Super Bowl-winning head coach Bill Cowher; the Free Agent Wire where users can sign Hall of Fame stars like Barry Sanders or Warren Moon; and the Playbook Shop introducing plays like the Wildcat offense.
Most importantly, users can coach their free online NFL team through that team’s division and season schedules. For example, users who choose a New Orleans Saints team would have the option to play through the NFC Divisional Challenge or jump right into the Saints 2010 NFL Schedule against the Minnesota Vikings– a repeat of last year’s NFC Championship!
3D Experience Unveiled
One of the most notable new elements of the game is the 3D upgrade. Powered by Unity’s sophisticated platform, this enhanced version of QUICKHIT NFL Football features dynamic 3D camera angles, advanced visual effects and a complete animation overhaul, adding to the authenticity of the game. QUICKHIT NFL Football is the first of its kind where Flash and Unity versions are compatible, making it possible for Flash users to compete head-to-head with upgraded 3D users. The 3D edition can be added as a standalone item or is free for all PRO Members, which is a new offering users can subscribe to on a monthly, six-month or annual basis.
