NHL 16 News Post



EA has just unveiled a new NHL 16 EASHL trailer which looks at the revamped mode from the perspective of fans of the series, who they claim helped shape this year's mode.

In the video, NHL 16 producer Sean Ramjagsingh said, "It was an opportunity for us to reimagine EA Sports Hockey League. Involving fans early was really important."

The video shows various clips of EASHL gameplay but also has a few interesting stories of the players play time with the game. Overall, the video has a very "this game is much better this year" tone to it.

Check out the video above for some player anecdotes of their playtime and some gameplay footage.

What do you all think?

Saw some things I liked from the gameplay in the video. Default is way too fast, but I can see some good potential with slider adjustments.

Here are some screenshots of the EASHL player classes attribute ratings that were shown.

Playmaker and Hybrid Goalie weren't shown long enough to see their full bars fill up. But the other classes were.

Huh, game developers listening to feedback from people who actually buy their games... EA Sports - It's "finally" in the game.

Haha Jayson somehow I don't think that Playmaker one is final.

Nobody does pr videos like EA. How many time was the term "new game" and "new experience" used in this video? Reminds me of the youtubers hyping up BF4 and BFH before release. Phrases like "they changed everything", "completely new experience" allow me not to take them seriously. They themselves admitted in the Q&A that they didn't change everything. Call me skeptical but I'll be waiting for a deep discount before purchasing. Another thing I noticed is that goalies are still not required to push of when down in the butterfly to move, smh. It's 2015 and even fifa has had footplanting for a while now, something as simple as that seems basic. Even nhl 2k8 had it.

Do you have a link to this interview?

The passing, especially D to D, looks phenomenal.

This is an EA hype video, so of course they would edit out any negative thoughts on the mode. Relax guys. Of course there will be issues, but be excited that we will get EASHL back.

I like the ability to be able to change makeup before the game. It's better that way than picking before and getting into a game where all 3 forwards are grinders. Of course there will be trolling with it, but can't prevent trolling 100%.

The pre-game stats thing I think would bring more quitting. If a guy join a game and is on the opposite team of players who have scored tons of goals, they may want to quit fearing they are inferior.

I for one am excited for this mode and see what changes have been made. Toeing the blue line and D-D passing could be great

This may be a nitpicky thing, but does anyone else feel the colored icons over the players looked a little too large? Hopefully they scale that down a little bit, I can see it becoming a distraction.

Still, some positives from this video. Still not sold, but they're getting close to what NHL 15 should have been.

Whoops! EA Sports leaks San Diego Gulls jerseys in new NHL 16 video

Yeah I also noticed teal and yellow switched sides. It was the opposite in NHL 15.

Aside from that, I hope the defensive AI asking is fixed cause the skating still looked like NHL 15 when trying to position

Nice to aleast hear that the D-men may now be a bit more than traffic cones.

looks like they went back to the original NHL 2010-2014 position colors.

C : red
LW: green
RW: blue
LD: teal
RD: yellow

I wonder what the story is for the change in NHL15, that was such an easily avoidable mistake.

Hopefully, they still allow to turn on opposite team colors for 1 on 1 coverage.

As The Rock once said "It doesn't matter!".
As long as this jersey existed, all others will be darlings in comparison.
