NHL 15 Features for Xbox One and
True Hockey Physics:
12 Player NHL Collision Physics - For the first time,
real-world physics affect every player through every on-ice collision
with the new 12 Player NHL® Collision Physics. Utilizing
the power of the new 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.
The Next-Generation Hockey Player:
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 across
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 new dekes, all
with an intuitive right stick control scheme that is easy to use but
packed with depth.
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.
NBC Sports Broadcast Package:
A 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. Leveraging the same Vision AI
foundation that the players have, and just like a live broadcast, Doc,
Eddie and Ray will anticipate plays and ramp up their intensity to
match the action on the ice with more than 35,000 lines of brand-new
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.
Real Life Broadcast Integration - When we say Doc and Eddie are
in the game, we mean really in the game. Taking commentary integration
to the next level, NHL 15 will feature real world pre-game
video commentary with Doc and Eddie. Set against NHL 15 in-game
visuals, the result is a revolutionary step forward in sports
videogames, where the lines between the real world of sport broadcast
and the game are blurred.
Unrivalled In-Arena Experience:
Over 9,000 Crowd Models - NHL 15 sets a new standard in
videogames with more than 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.
Living Crowds - The crowd is alive. Feel the crowd behavior
change after dropping the gloves, landing a big hit, or scoring a
clutch goal. Individual behaviors are mapped to each person in the
crowd, as they anticipate the play, taunt players, clap to music from
the dynamic Jumbotron or even take a quick break from the action to
snap a selfie and immortalize their experience.
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 more than 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.
