NHL 15 News Post


We wanted to post this as a quick reference guide for those of you looking for specific NHL 15 game modes on each console.

If you are curious why certain modes didn't make the cut, make sure you read our interview with NHL 15 Producer Sean Ramjagsingh. He also contributed to the AMA hosted on our Forums.

NHL 15 PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Game Modes
  • Hockey Ultimate Team
    Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) is the most played mode in EA SPORTS NHL and it’s easy to see why. Nowhere else can you build and play with a team composed of all your favorite players to create an ultimate dream team. Battle your way through 10 divisions in Online Seasons and face-off against other fan created teams from around the hockey world.
  • Online Versus Play
    Online Versus Play connects you with other NHL®15 players from around the globe. Take control of any team in NHL 15 and Play a Friend for bragging rights, or jump into Ranked Quick Match to play an opponent with a similar skill set.
  • Be a GM
    Take control of your favorite NHL franchise and guide them to Stanley Cup glory! Manage your team through free agency, the trade deadline, and the rookie draft to build a legendary NHL dynasty. Play up to 25 seasons as you play the roles of GM, coach, and player, all at once.
  • Be a Pro
    Take control of your created player and guide them from the fourth line to superstardom. On the ice, score big goals, win key face-offs, land devastating hits, and play within your coaches system to earn more ice time. The more you get in your coaches good books, the more opportunities you’ll have to become a NHL star and lead your team to a Stanley Cup championship.
  • NHL® Moments Live
    NHL® Moments Live lets you relive, recreate or alter some of the most exciting moments from the current and past NHL season. Relive Daniel Alfredsson’s return to Ottawa, recreate Ben Scrivens’ 59 save performance against San Jose, or alter the outcome of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Moments will be updated where and when available throughout the 2014-15 NHL season.

Is it HUT really the most played mode in this series?
 
# 2 EliJ27 @ 08/22/14 10:29 AM
I just hope we can still create players and edit things to our liking, if EA takes that away from this game i'm done.
 
# 3 EliJ27 @ 08/22/14 10:34 AM
Since this is kind of a topic of game modes and modes in the game,I want to know some of your opinions on why or why not you think the NHL series could benefit if they added a TeamBuilder in future titles. I personally love the customization aspect of games, It makes me feel like I have more control of my game that I pay nearly $70 for. As we all know the create-a-team in the NHL series has grown quite stale.
 
# 4 gabbers895 @ 08/22/14 10:37 AM
Interesting, neither mentions the inclusion of things like Season, Playoff, Tournament, Shootout.

Maybe a good sign that these modes are next Gen?
 
# 5 T5063 @ 08/22/14 10:48 AM
So GM mode is exactly the same as NHL14?

Notice a difference? Uh-oh. Gotta be a typo or something, right?
 
# 7 aparks87 @ 08/22/14 10:52 AM
So you cant just play a season as your favorite on either next gen or current gen consoles? Or is that Be a GM ?

Yeah, this difference in wording has really got me scratching my head.

Every statement from EA, it feels like that I need PROOF before I believe in whatever they claim. Maybe in their part because they earn more extra money out of this mode?

Unfortunately yes! Check the interview with RAM. I am so annoyed about how to improve your relationship with other GM's ....by trading picks 5-6 years down the line.... WOW!

Tricky EA trying to fool us again?
 
# 11 Dazraz @ 08/22/14 11:58 AM
So we have all these different licensed Leagues in NHL 15 but are unable to incorporate them in a Single Season/Tournament Mode. Crazy. EA did exactly this last year with FIFA only to....you guessed it, bring it back in this year. Looks like I'll wait out until NHL 16 then.
 
# 12 Haeyena @ 08/22/14 12:59 PM
I'd like to know how you start out in BAP, drafted or place yourself on your favorite team? And I'd like to know if you can be demoted to the minors. I know that's all Live the Life stuff, but it would immerse me more for sure.
 
# 13 PensDynasty87 @ 08/22/14 01:27 PM
Be a pro to me has always been pointless, yes it has it's moments of being fun but ea has this thing where everybody u make has to end up being a superstar top line guy. For once id likd to be able to be a 3rd liner n stay there.
 
# 14 pm83 @ 08/22/14 01:48 PM
Season mode? What the...

This definitely sealed the deal. No 15 for me.
 
# 15 garyjr33 @ 08/22/14 02:01 PM
The difference in wording there is probably just that a difference in wording so they don't sound so repetitive in writing the same statement word for word.
 
# 16 Joman66 @ 08/22/14 03:24 PM
Practice Mode
We’re talkin’ about practice!

Love that Iverson reference.
 
# 17 PPerfect_CJ @ 08/22/14 03:33 PM
If Steve got this directly from EA, then it's pretty telling that HUT is at the top of the list. I'm passing. Just gonna stick with '14 on PS3.
 
# 18 riichiieriich @ 08/22/14 04:09 PM
HUT isn't the most played game mode but it does make them the most money. That's all EA cares about. I bet they'd have just HUT as the only game mode if they could.

Well, hopefully season mode is so barebone and simple mode they didnt mention it...
Or they dropped it. They only need the other leagues for more HUT cards for ppl to get... :-/

No offline 30-team Season or Franchise Mode.

Highly, highly disappointed. I guess I'll have to miss out on Doc and NBC.

Truly saddened.
