Just after the Madden hype train is leaving the station, EA is bringing out info on NHL 15. Must be a move to try and overshadow MLB 14 The Show a bit. #GoBlackhawks

Runs until June 1st in a 3 round tourney. Underwhelming options, but at least EA narrowed it down.

And that's it. Oh and the Gold Packs are spread out once per week, so if you skip a week, you're likely SOL.

Gameplay
Stick Skills are easier to use on the right stick, but still deep to master. Player AI is now better to find shooting spots and anticipate passing lanes.

New announcers
The best update to the game is the inclusion of the best sportscaster in all of sports, Doc Emrick and his partner Eddie Olczyk.

Authentic Arenas and Living Crowds
There are said to be 9,000 different fan models in the game.

Physics
All 12 players on the ice will have their own physics calculations. So collisions will be realistic, and huddles along the boards for pucks will be natural. The puck physics were completely redone to be more unpredictable.

Graphics
The hockey players are made up of 3 separate models. The player, their equipment layer, and then their jersey.  Player details will use the UFC graphics engine to reproduce high quality scans of each player.

Because of course it is...

Still no KHL, not a big deal except for the most hardcore (and Russians).

It's likely that the EASHL (Multi-player, 12 players control an individual on the ice) will not make an appearance in the PS4 and XBone versions of the game. They will still be present in the PS3 and 360 versions though.

The mounting evidence of no EASHL in next-gen NHL 15 is almost definitive. EA has to be on thin ice with this game now, and if this expands to include no Connected GM mode as well, they're losing a good number of purchases, including mine.

In the latest development of whether NHL 15 on PS4 will have all the features or not, it is hypothesized that Career modes might be all rolled up into one mega mode.  EA Sports is expected to reveal the game modes this week. They better bring it...

The PS4/XBone achievement lists have been leaked by someone seeing the game show up in the XBone Dashboard.
>> Twitch archive of achievements
The list makes no mention of EASHL and GM Connected mode at all. Pretty sad when you consider the extra development time they had for this year by not releasing a PS4 version last year.

Looks like the NHL Franchise is over before it began. :/
