NHL 18 is back with a brand new mode called Threes. Players join together online or on the couch to take on another team of 3 in a smaller than regulation size rink. Shacknews recently had our hands-on NHL 18 and this was definitely our favorite part of the game. The new Threes mode add some arcade-like wrinkles to tradional hockey gameplay. At the beginning of the game, the host selects the total goals required to win the game. If at the end of the game neither team has won, the teams just keep squaring off in new periods. Another gameplay mechanic is the Money Puck which takes two goals away from the opposing team when you score. This can cause drastic sways in momentum. In an epic battle with several other media outlets, I lead my team of mascots to victory. Please take a look at this exclusive 40 minute gameplay marathon of NHL Threes captured on a PS4 Pro.
