Could a mod clean up the title? Bad idea to copy/paste from another site. :blush:

Here's to hoping GM Connected can carry over year to year. I would LOVE to see draft picks actually matter. :)

Xbox One/PS4 Features



12 PLAYER NHL COLLISION PHYSICS
For the first time in any sports game, real-world physics affects every player through every on-ice collision with the new 12 Player NHL Collision Physics. Utilizing the power of the next generation consoles, and building off the critically-acclaimed NHL Collision Physics system, every player on the ice is governed by physics at all times. 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.

REAL PUCK PHYSICS
The puck is one of the most complex items in the game to authentically replicate and it finally gets its due in NHL 15. Completely rebuilt puck physics result in a more realistic feel to every puck interaction. Everything on the ice, including the ice surface itself, is live which leads to the unpredictable and authentic puck spins, rolls and bounces seen in a real NHL game.

AUTHENTIC PLAYER & EQUIPMENT MODELS
The Next Generation Hockey Player has been rebuilt from the ice up. Now player models have three distinct layers - the body, equipment, and jersey. Each layer interacts independently, making every contact with the puck or other players even more realistic. Dynamic Cloth technology adds an extra layer of realism as it reacts to the player’s movement as they explode up the ice, helping bring the speed of the game to life.

UNPRECEDENTED PLAYER LIKENESS
Powered by the same technology that brought the most realistic representation of the athlete to EA SPORTS UFC, NHL 15 delivers groundbreaking player likeness, emotion and animation. From the strides a player takes to get up the ice to the emotion on their face after scoring a game winning goal, the players are as real as they’ve ever been.

SUPERSTAR SKILL STICK
Now all the tools of an NHL superstar are in your hands. The revolutionary Skill Stick has evolved 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.

AUTHENTIC ARENAS
There is no feeling like being there, and we are giving you the best seats in the house. The power of the next-gen consoles finally allows the NHL franchise to capture every detail of an NHL arena. Unique arena elements from 19,000+ seat capacities to lighting and player entrance tunnels are captured with a level of detail not possible on the previous generation. Now those home games will truly feel like home.

NEW COMMENTARY TEAM
New voices for a new generation. NHL 15 welcomes the NBC Sports commentary team of Mike 'Doc' Emrick and Eddie Olczyk to the broadcast booth. TSN analyst Ray Ferraro will provide game insights at ice level. Combined with Real Life Broadcast Integration that will feature real-world pre-game video commentary with Doc and Eddie set against in-game visuals, NHL 15 takes a revolutionary step forward in sports videogames; where the lines between the real world of sport broadcast and the game are blurred.

NBC SPORTS GAME DAY PRESENTATION
The most realistic broadcast package in a video game to-date is possible because of a new partnership with NBC Sports. Set the scene with the NHL on NBC crew welcoming you to the city during the game intros and immerse yourself in an experience that matches what you see on television with NHL on NBC graphics and branding.

LIVING CROWDS
NHL 15 sets a new standard in videogames with over 9,000 individual crowd models with 4x the animations of previous generations. Take a look through the glass and you’ll see fans hold up signs with your name on them, costume wearing superfans, or even sections full of team rivals rooting against you. Feel their behavior change after dropping the gloves, landing a big hit, or scoring a clutch goal. The crowd is alive.

VISION AI
An elevated level of player intelligence, Vision AI features evolved awareness with players reading and reacting to potential plays. Scoring area recognition, pass anticipation, and enhanced team breakouts all improve the flow of the game.

Multiplayer NHL Collision Physics
Year two of the critically-acclaimed NHL Collision Physics evolves to introduce true-to-life multiplayer collisions, net scrambles and player pileups, capturing the true desperation of every shift in the NHL.

Play old-school hockey with NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, suit up with an online team in EA SPORTS Hockey League, or build and play with your ultimate fantasy team in Hockey Ultimate Team. NHL15 brings with it the best sport game modes of a generation.

All-New Commentary Team
NHL 15 welcomes the NBC Sports™ commentary team of Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick and Eddie Olczyk to the broadcast booth. Doc and Eddie will anticipate plays and ramp up their intensity to match the action on the ice with over 35,000 lines of brand-new commentary.

Doc Emrick!!!! YES!

Too bad we don't get Pierre McGuire for the on-ice reports.

That commentary team is not going to be well-received in Canada. I'm surprised there aren't multiple teams (maybe there are?).

Anyway, new stuff looks interesting.

Why is that?

Why is that?

They don't get NBC and don't care for that team. They would want the CBC Hockey Night in Canada guys. Most Americans wouldn't know them. Best solution would be to have both at some point.

Um, this game will most likely be out in September.

Yes, NHL has Hockey Ultimate Team. Even though I don't play HUT, I will say that it is FAR superior to MUT just because you have so many more leagues' players (NHL, AHL, WHL, OHL, QMJHL and several European leagues).

Yep, probably around September 9th will be my guess for the release date. NHL 14 released on September 10th, NHL 13 released on September 11th, NHL 12 released on September 13th. So I'd imagine they release it the second week of September (the 9th) instead of the third week (the 16th). They really can't go beyond that because then they'll run into the release of FIFA 15 (which I'd guess they'll release either the fourth week on the 23rd or the very last day of September on the 30th).

I'm really really looking forward to FIFA and NHL this year, since I plan on buying both on the PS4. Being able to join a couple of you from here on TGT in FIFA and NHL games, that'll be a lot of fun.

If you can use more than one code (doubtful), I will give you mine since I have a connection for GameCenter and mlb.tv. :)

I suspect I will pick this bad-boy up around Christmas time. I haven't bought an NHL game since NHL 11 so I am long overdue.
