NHL 17 features detailed
This year's hockey sim includes a variety of changes and new modes
Electronic Arts has announced the full feature set coming to NHL 17 this Fall.
The new Draft Champions mode will mix fantasy draft with fast rounds of superstar picks. For the first time in franchise history, the World Cup of Hockey game mode lets you take to the ice on a global stage and compete with your national hockey heroes.
The next generation of Be a GM introduces Franchise Mode where you answer directly to the owner and take total control of the team and the business, from fan concessions to promotional nights to the arena and city you compete in.
The new Net Battle system lets you fight for that critical space in front of the crease on offense and defense. Authentic goaltenders both look and play the part with lifelike stances and smarter Reactionary Save Intelligence that lets goalies read and react with an athletic save or get big with the body to block the puck.
EA SPORTS Hockey League (EASHL) introduces an all-new Player Rank progression system to earn and unlock customization items for your player, team and arena. Use the new Team Editor to customize your team’s identity, including logos, colors, patches, and – for the first time ever – use the all-new Arena Creator in EASHL and Franchise Mode.
NHL 17 will be released this Fall on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
