NHL 16 lets you play together and win together
NHL 16 developer EA Canada brought in die-hard fans of the series for feedback on the EA Sports Hockey League mode, and a new trailer from publisher Electronic Arts showcases that development process. Back in February, the Anaheim Ducks officially unveiled that their new San Diego-based AHL affiliate would take on the Gulls moniker that has been associated with hockey in the Southern Californian city for decades. The faces of Chicago hockey are now the faces of the National Hockey League-together.
Available to NHL 15 owners only, EA SPORTS NHL will be releasing a limited access EA SPORTS Hockey League Beta starting July 30 until August 6 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This will be your only chance to experience the new EASHL in NHL 16 before the game hits stores September 15. This fan-favorite online team mode has been reimagined and lets you choose specialized player classes to deliver a balanced competitive experience on the ice. Player skill and your ability to play as a team will now be the determining factor in who wins and loses. So, sharpen those skates and grab your buddies because the EA SPORTS Hockey League is back!
You can conduct team meeting to gauge the temperature of the team. Immediately after the stand-up meeting, you get a report that tells you who reacted well and who reacted poorly to your message. As you work with a player or do team meetings, you can tell which ones fit your management style. Simming through games is much speedier this year. Sim intervention also returns so you can step in to change the outcome of a game you started simming. Last year EA inexplicably automated the player entry draft, meaning all that time you spent scouting the eligible players was for naught. This year the draft is back。 The fantasy draft also returns, allowing you to change up the rosters before starting your GM career.

The front hand back hand did a complete 360. Not only do you fake out the goalie just as easily in NHL 14, but now you can just as easily go bar down with a backhand with literally any player. A shootout I did against someone online went to round 22 because me and the person I was versing were both doing that exact same move, until eventually I did it to early and the goalie caught on. The entire Be a Pro game mode seems very quickly put together and lacking some detailed features that provide ease of advancement and play through the game mode, and without them makes for a long experience that had me giving up after less than half my first season.
The new Precision Skating tool lets you make more purposeful movements and with seamless puck pick ups there is more control for the player and new options to maneuver into a scoring position. EA also adds in NHL Playoff beards when you take your team to the playoffs, more realistic arenas, players and commentary. The odds are very good for a NHL 16 demo to arrive before the NHL 16 release date. EA delivered a NHL 15 demo about two weeks before the NHL 15 release.
