EA Sports has released a new trailer showcasing the new physics engine being employed in NHL 15, which will be the first National Hockey League video game released onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
According to EA Sports, real-world physics affects every player through every on-ice collision with the new 12 Player NHL Collision Physics. It's designed so that the hard-hitting chaos of NHL hockey comes through in true-to-life fashion, including secondary collisions, net scrambles and player pileups.
Within that physical chaos, there is still the need to control the puck. In NHL 15, puck physics have been completely overhauled. Completely rebuilt puck physics result in a more realistic feel to every puck interaction. Everything on the ice, including the ice surface itself, is live, which can lead to unpredictable and authentic puck spins, rolls and bounces -- just like those seen in actual NHL games.
NHL 15 is scheduled to release for PlayStation 3 and 4 as well as Xbox 360 and One on Sept. 9.
