NHL 16 continues to build on their authentic arenas and atmosphere with signature effects and well known props throughout the league. Check out a few examples in the images below. If you missed it last week, check out the details for the Wild, Red Wings, Flames and Capitals here.



Tampa Bay Lightning – Amalie Arena

The lightning-throwing Tesla coils will now be seen and heard at the home of the Eastern Conference Champions after every home goal & victory.



Pittsburgh Penguins – CONSOL Energy Center

Home and away benches have been updated to ensure that players are situated on the correct side of the ice.



Nashville Predators – Bridgestone Arena

At the start of home games, the intimidating symbol of the Nashville Predators will be lifted to the rafters as Doc Emrick and Eddie Olczyk welcome you to the broadcast.



Carolina Hurricanes – PNC Arena

This 18,680 seat arena is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. It hosted North Carolina’s first ever professional sports championship when the Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup in 2006. That Stanley Cup banner, along with retired player numbers from this franchise can be seen hanging from the rafters of PNC Arena.

Nice! PNC Looks pretty darn close to what it looks like in real life. I was kinda skeptical when I heard it was in. Also that lightning bolt is a cool addition to Tampa games. Having been to a few Preds games I'd say you can't NOT have the Predator head on the ice as the team comes out of the dressing room. I usually try not to place visual aspects over gameplay but these are nice.

EDIT: Also I have to wonder if the Hurricane warning siren will be in game for Canes games. Not a biggy but that would be awesome if that were in.

I'm really enjoying this feature of NHL 16. Previous NHL games have featured little individuality from 1 rink to another. Details like this are neither game breakers or game makers but they do add a lot to the overall immersion to the end product.

Unless they re-timed everything, the "broadcast" starts when the players are already skating on the ice, so of course we wouldn't see the players skate through the Predator head.
