NHL 15 coming this Fall
New generaion of hockey brings improved physics, new presentation
Electronic Arts today announced NHL 15, the first title in a new generation of hockey videogames.
On PS4 and Xbox One, players can experience the hard hitting chaos and unpredictability of the sport as real-world physics are extended to all 12 players on the ice, as well as the puck itself. Look, move, play and think like a real hockey player with all new authentic player modelling and an evolved arsenal of tools, including the Superstar Skill Stick and Vision AI.
You’ll play in front of fans created with 9,000 dynamic and individual crowd models, in authentic arenas across the National Hockey League. Finally, NHL 15 overhauls the look of the game with the new NBC Sports Game Day Presentation featuring the commentary team of Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick and Eddie Olczy. TSN analyst Ray Ferraro will also provide insights at ice level.
On current generation consoles, however, fans can look forward to only to improvements of the Collision Physics engine, and the new commentary team.
In partnership with the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association, starting today fans get to decide the cover with the launch of NHL 15 Cover Vote Campaign. From a pool of eight superstars, fans are encouraged to visit NHL.com to vote as often as possible to ensure their favorite player advances through the weekly elimination rounds.
NHL 15 Cover Athlete candidates are Patrice Bergeron, Logan Couture, Drew Doughty, Matt Duchene, Erik Karlsson, Phil Kessel, T.J. Oshie, and P.K. Subban.
NHL 15 will hit stores worldwide this fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
