While successful, the most recent decade of EA Sports NHL video games have featured relative consistency. Gamers heard Gary Thorne and Bill Clement commentate, while hitting and passing was exciting, but arguably unrealistic.
Below, NHL 15 Producer Peter Sobczak introduces some of the features in the franchise's most recent edition, which hits stores Sept. 9. According to Sobczak, the new game features more realistic puck movement and contact between multiple players. That is not to mention a more detailed crowd and a new broadcast team, featuring Doc Emrick, Eddie Olyzyk and Ray Ferraro.
Rangers fans beware. The opponent in the video may bring back bad memories.
