Drive The Puck In NHL 16 - Out Now
EA Sports is happy to announce that the ice is ready and players are welcome to skate onto it, as NHL 16 is available now, thanks to feedback from some of the most dedicated fans.
“This year has been an incredible journey for the development team,” said Sean Ramjagsingh, Senior Producer, EA SPORTS NHL. “We’ve worked closer with our fans than ever before to truly understand what they wanted in this year’s game. The team is incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished with NHL 16 and we can’t wait for fans to get their hands on the finished product they helped shape.”
Hockey fans will discover new levels of depth and more ways to play in NHL 16. For those craving team play, they can jump into either 6 v. 6 Online Team Play, Online Couch Co-op, or the fan favorite, EASHL, that delivers a new player class system for a more competitive and balanced experience. Fans looking to dive into single players modes will discover a new Be A Pro progression system where how they play on the ice shapes who they become in the NHL. Be A GM introduces an all new morale management feature and now fans can play through single player offline seasons in Hockey Ultimate Team.
From what you play to how you play. NHL 16 includes the all new On-Ice Visual Trainer and smarter Coach Feedback; both tools will teach new players how to learn the fundamentals and give returning players tips on how to build on their NHL skills. Combined with improved gameplay balance and control at every position as well as an unrivaled game day atmosphere, NHL 16 puts you into the heart of a team, where you’ll play together and win together.
For players on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, EA Sports NHL Legacy Edition brings together the most popular modes and award-winning gameplay features from nine years of NHL hockey for fans looking for a hockey fix on these consoles.
