EA announces NHL 15 game modes, absence of EASHL in next-gen versions

Posted on August 20, 2014 AT 01:30pm

EA today announced the six game modes that NHL 15 will launch with on PS4 and Xbox One and eight game modes for PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Those modes, no doubt quite familiar to any longstanding fans of the NHL series, are: Play Now, Be A Pro, Be A GM, Online Versus, Hockey Ultimate Team, and NHL Moments. NHL 15’s PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will also tout the return of NHL 94 Anniversary Mode from last year’s NHL entry and Practice Mode.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will also launch with Online Team Play and EA Sports Hockey League, the former which will be added to NHL 15 on PS4 and Xbox One as part of its future content updates, the latter which won’t be included at all.

“While we can’t deliver EASHL in NHL 15 on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, we have huge plans for the mode in future iterations of the game,” reads the post on NHL 15’s official website outlining the game modes. “We will be putting together a small EASHL committee made up of you, the fans, to ensure that we deliver an experience that is bigger and better than any of us would have imagined when we first introduced the feature in NHL ’09.”

NHL 15 launches across PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 September 9 in North America, September 12 in PAL territories.
