EA has announced that NHL 15 will kick off a “grand new generation” of hockey videogames that are due for release on September 9, 2014 in North America and September 12, 2014 in Europe. Everything from the visuals, gameplay, and sound are being overhauled in an attempt to make NHL 15 better than ever before, they’ve claimed.
“This is the start of a new era for the award-winning NHL videogame franchise,” said Dean Richards, General Manager at EA Sports NHL. “New technology gives us the freedom and horsepower to change almost every part of the game. From the way players look and move on the ice, to the unrivaled electricity of the in-arena experience, to the sights and sounds of an all new broadcast team, NHL 15 brings the game we love to life in ways that were never possible before.”
During EA’s Gamescom presentation we were shown a new gameplay trailer – check it out below.
