NHL 14 Be A Pro Becomes 'Live the Life Mode'

View author's profile

For added authenticity, knock your own teeth out now. NHL 14's Be A Pro Career Mode has become 'Live the Life Mode', which like Be A Pro, will enable you to pursue an all-encompassing career as an NHL ice hockey star, supposedly inspired "by working with real NHL and junior hockey players."

As before, you'll create your fledgling hockey player and take him from the minor leagues to NHL superstardom, climbing the league ranks while living the life of an NHL pro both on and off the ice. You'll interact with teammates outside the rink, engage in media interviews, choosing your words carefully regarding your performance on the ice. It sounds a bit like NBA 2K's career mode.

Making decisions that'll impact your pro's ratings and popularity among NHL fans, your teammates, family and management, the right choices will be rewarded with endorsement deals that bring in extra cash and exposure like magazine covers, billboard ads and even a cover spot on the EA Sports NHL game.

NHL 14 is facing off on September 10th in North America and September 13th in Europe. Check out the Live the Life Mode trailer below.

Sounds great, about time they seriously change up BaP. But, really, what does the added money have to do with anything? Doubt they will add the ability to buy anything.

I think this looks great. I get that it's a hockey game but this just adds a little something more than just playing game after game - mixes it up a little.

I could careless what anyone else thinks about this game, if you don't like it don't play it. That simple

As for me I've been a MAJOR NHL Fan since the day I was born which was in 1987. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game and play with my friends in our EASHL Club

@9 Same deal here, I usually buy FIFA, than NHL the next year. The small improvements do not justify a brand new game every single year. I'm really excited for NHL 13, my Leafs have a sweet roster this year! I would love to be drafted as a Leaf, because BaP looks great this year.

I think EA made a crucial mistake by withholding this game from the multi-generational level. Madden 25 will be available on 360, PS3, X1, and PS4, whereas this one is only getting the 360/PS3 treatment. NHL games have been tremendous fun for a long time, and honestly, between this and GTA5 not getting ported to the next gen, I am in no rush to get either the X1 or the PS4. Big mistakes there.
