EA Sports officially announced NHL 15 today, with a hefty list of new features. It's due this fall for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A cover vote is open now too, letting you help determine who takes center ice from a pool of eight contenders.

The PS4 and XBO versions will feature collision and puck physics, letting both the players and puck bounce off each other realistically. The Skill Stick and player AI have been given some revisions to be smarter and more fluid. The NHL likeness presentation is also getting a boost with a partnership with NBC Sports for making the broadcast graphics and commentary similar to those when you watch a match on TV. The crowds have been given an overhaul to make them react to big plays, and the arenas have been given an extra layer of detail.

The official vote is being done in brackets, as right now there are eight players facing off two-by-two. The winner will be announced at the 2014 NHL Awards on June 24.

        this would be perfect for me. i end up buying these games once in a while and never playing them. i'd much rather play a quick game on the go than to sit down and play this for a few hours on the couch instead of something with a story like AC or infamous. i'm afraid that they won't bother. they've been doing fifa yearly but from what i read, they made fifa 13 and just reskin it every year. i dont see anything about new madden on vita either.

          I'm ok with a reskinned NHL or Madden every year just so I get my updates. I would still buy them.

      oh so that means it's going to suck even more.

        NBC's presentation is nice, just their commentary usually sucks. This is probably a good idea to try and mimic tv though. Anything to make people's access watching it on national broadcast easier and better.

        As a Canadian, step one will be to turn off the terribad American commentary. Oh god, I can't watch hockey on US channels, it hurts so much.

          PuckTrax was the worst. I remember when the did that back int he '90s. Fucking bloom on the puck and swoosh lines on slapshots was terrible.

          Mostly UX for the menu systems. There's a lot of screens in dem sports games.

      Looking forward to this so much. I skipped 14 because it wasn't available for the PS4. Been playing FIFA with friends instead, and while it's a good game, it just isn't as much fun as NHL is.
