DO NOT BUY NHL 15

on Tue Aug 19, 2014 6:11 pm
You have to vote with your wallets to get big companies to change. EA had an extra year, and failed to deliver several key online modes to their next gen offerings.  No GM Connected mode for online franchises (this eliminates my purchase) and no EASHL that has a bit of a cult following. There's no OTP (Online Team Play), though EA thinks they might patch it in. There's also no Live the Life mode either.

The last gen versions of these games remain untouched, except for commentary additions. Not buying the game would show whether EA can man up, or if they'll just fall by the wayside on this franchise.

Official word via EA's ugly mouth

The planned lowkey Franchise I had is officially cancelled. Sad

Oh, it gets worse for EA. There are even fewer things in the game than they admitted to. Users playing the game via EA Access saw how bleak it was firsthad.

Here is a list of features that were present in NHL 14 but missing from NHL 15, per the Operation Sports community.

  • No GM Connected
  • No Online Team Play (when this is patched into the game later this year, it will use real NHL players and teams)
  • No EA Sports Hockey League
  • No EA Sports Arena
  • No Online Shootouts
  • No Live the Life
  • No Be A Legend
  • No Winter Classic
