NHL 15 News Post



It looks like we will get our first look at NHL 15 on Monday, May 5th.

Last April, EA Sports revealed the first NHL 14 screenshot, trailer and fact sheet. They also kicked off the cover vote a week later.

What are you hoping to see or hear about NHL 15 on Monday?

To be fair, that's how most of the next-gen sports games have been so far.
Madden looks to play no differently, The Show is the same, was NBA2K14 that much different from last to next gen?

I loved how different NHL07 was. I was hoping for a new engine for next-gen, but I doubt we get it.
It's too much money to invest.

I'll just say I won't be surprised if the game is very similar to this generation, but with better graphics and hopefully an upgrade in presentation and commentary.
But the AI and gameplay will most likely be the same.

I'm anticipating little, to no change.

It'll probably be a screenshot of a bench brawl.

Didn't mention FIFA 14? I think it changed the most (imo) between the generations.

I am not "hoping", but expecting NHL 15 to knock my socks off! They didn't produce a version for the initial next-gen, so all my eggs are in the basket, looking for them to "WOW" me with an incredible experience on next-gen, in NHL15; giving EA at least a cycle and a half for this up coming version!
cheers

The most significant thing I'm looking for is to see if they make the jump to the PS4 this year. I thought it was odd that NHL 14 wasn't on the new systems.

I've heard a lot of rumors as to what's been updated. Some of it sounds great. It really does. If you can't wait until Monday, PM me and I'll give you the list.

Skipped NHL 14 because of the switch to XB1 & PS4, really looking forward to getting a hockey game this year.

This, a thousand times. We need some next-gen hockey!

What worries me is that last year, the EA team seemed a bit miffed that NHL wasn't going to be next-gen for the launch of the new consoles.
It makes me wonder just how much work was done on the next-gen version?

I hope our socks are knocked off. I'm just not going to hold my breath.

I think assuming it will be on next gen consoles is a little premature. Look what happened with fifa World Cup and nhl 14. As always my expectations are lowered every year.

This game will be the reason if I even will buy a console from this generation.

100% will be on current-gen and last. Next year will be a true current gen experience though. Glad 14 didn't come out for current like Madden did as we can all see it was nothing special. Should of just waited until next year.

In my opinion, NHL 15 will make the jump to next-gen platforms this fall. When sports games debut on next-gen systems, they typically come out a bit flat and lack the overall "wow" factor. This fall's release will definitely look visually appealing, however I bet we won't see any major game play innovation/changes until fall 2015.

There was no NHL on 360 or PS3 their first year either. The market for NHL is much smaller than it is for FIFA and Madden.

As far as the World Cup game, it would have been the second FIFA title to be released in a 5 month span on systems that barely have built up a user base.

I for one want every god damn player's face scanned and implemented!!! I'm so sick of half of my team having generic faces! One of the best beardsmen in Hockey Brent Burns is just a generic face. Also give us GameFace in Live the Life. So I can actually... you know... try to live the life.

Also if I hear "Checkmark glove, checkmark save, checkmark..." one more f'n time. I will be boycotting this series.

But let's face it. How much different are some of these sports games from 10 years ago?

I admit I'm a jaded gamer. I've lived through several 'next-gen' releases and I've found that certain sports franchises haven't really improved a whole lot.
The graphics always seem to get better, but gameplay and AI haven't made the equivalent jump that the hardware has.

I'm hoping for a next-gen screenshot. That would be awesome.

I hope to see that the lack of attention given to the last couple installments in this series has not gone in vain, and that resources were used all the while in preparation for '15.

I try not to act entitled, but I feel like we're owed something for sticking it out with this title and being bent over for so long.

What I want the most is gameplay, gm mode, and presentation to actually start reflecting real life. Game-play aside, gm mode and presentation just require effort. There's not much need for innovation in these areas, it's just monkey-see-monky-do. I know game-play is a tough thing to do, but I'm hoping they can really cook on these new systems.
