True Hockey Physics - For the first time in any sports game, real-world physics affects every player through every on-ice collision with the new 12 Player NHL® Collision Physics. Completely rebuilt Real Puck Physics result in a more realistic feel to every puck interaction. Everything on the ice, including the ice surface itself, is live which leads to the unpredictable and authentic puck spins, rolls and bounces seen in a real NHL game.
The Next-Generation Hockey Player - The Next Generation Hockey Player has been rebuilt from the ice up using Authentic Player & Equipment Models which has three distinct layers - the body, equipment, and jersey. Each layer interacts independently, making every contact with the puck or other players even more realistic. Combined with Unprecedented Player Likeness NHL 15 delivers groundbreaking player likeness, emotion and animation.
