Following the announcement of Madden NFL 15, EA Sports has today unveiled NHL 15 with a short teaser trailer and a few initial details on what this particular installment will be bringing to the ice. You can expect improved player likenesses, intelligence and emotion as well as a "diverse and animated" crowd. Also, the game will include something called the 'Superstar Skill Stick'.
NHL 15 also marks the series' debut on current/next-gen consoles, with new '12 Player NHL Collision Physics' with real-world physics that affect every player on the ice. "Feel the hard-hitting chaos of NHL hockey through true-to-life secondary collisions, net scrambles and player pileups, capturing the desperation of every shift" says the official website.
Real puck physics, authentic arenas, players and equipment models are all promised, while the Superstar Skill Stick has apparently been designed to "give even more control to the player". "Protect the puck, receive passes without breaking stride, and discover an arsenal of sweet new dekes, all with an intuitive right stick control scheme that is easy to use but packed with depth," the blurb adds.
NHL 15 will also include the new NBC Sports commentary team of Mike 'Doc' Emrick and Eddie Olczyk, while TSN analyst Ray Ferraro "will provide game insights at ice level". The whole game will actually include NBC Sports game day presentation throughout, with the graphics, build-up and commentary all present and correct.
NHL 15 will be facing off in autumn 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3. Check out the teaser below.
