NHL 15 Gameplay Trailer Banks on True Hockey Physics

By   /   Jul 17, 2014

A new gameplay trailer released for NHL 15 takes us back on to the ice to show the game’s realistic take on ‘true hockey physics.’

According to EA Sports, the latest NHL 15 “utilizes the power of next-generation consoles and the critically-acclaimed NHL Collision Physics system, to put every player on the ice into physics at all times.”

We’ve been hearing good things about the game’s new Physics engine for sometime now. Today we get to see that played in action as the new trailer showcases how every player is susceptible to authentic collisions. Combining that with an improved audio engine, players will now get an experience of greater realism upon the sight and sound of players hitting the ice and each other hard.

Similar to real-life hockey, NHL 15 can end up with unpredictable player pileups, net scrambles and “true-to-life secondary collisions.” Skating down the court, a mere brush can send a player scampering against nearby players.

Additionally, alongside the players, the game’s puck also features real-time physics, with authentic puck spins and bounces.

NHL 15 is scheduled for release on September 9 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. The game is now available for pre-order.
