NHL 15: Next-gen player gameplay

Players' realism moves to whole new level in NHL 15
Players’ realism moves to whole new level in NHL 15

EA Sports released their second gameplay trailer for NHL 15 since their E3 showing. The game was awarded the E3 Critic Award for “Best Sports Game” last week and the newest glimpse of the upcoming game highlights the difference in players’ equipment and jerseys, and their reaction to action going on around them.

NHL 15 producer, Sean Ramjagsingh, shows off the jerseys’ ability to flutter when hit with a puck, or when skating with speed.


NHL 15 will release on September 7th this year on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

It should be noted that many of the promoted features of the game will not be included in the 360 and PS3 versions. They will be in-essence a re-hash of NHL 14, but with new commentators.

  1. It is sad when this will be my first Hockey game bought since the PS1 days……over Madden! Can’t believe EA’s chosen to implement real time physics in this, and NOT Madden lol. Wow.

  2. NHL is a much faster pace and really benefits from real-time physics. Even visually the game looks amazing on the next-gen consoles.

  3. NHL is def faster, but all sports games would benefit greatly from real time physics. Case in point, UFC is fun and realistic because of the punches and kicks landing accurately. And that’s with bad input lag. I remember years ago when EA was considering implementing Natural Motion physics in Madden, but never did. I left the series when it failed to evolve where it counts. It’s like they’re sitting on that NFL license so comfortably controlling football games. Won’t go back until they give me what feels real. Can’t wait to see how NHL turns out, so I can show my boys what next gen sports feels like.

  4. It is terrible that their exclusivity license has stymied the competitive innovation that you’d like to see in all games.

  5. […] next-gen platforms and well as PS4 and Xbox 360, and annual sports installments in the form of the revamped NHL 15 and always-improving FIFA […]
