With generic arenas and generally passive crowds, previous NHL efforts never captured the vigor and enthusiasm of hockey fans. NHL 15 changes that.

In a new trailer released at Gamescom, you can see just how far developer EA Canada is going to capturing the pageantry of the NHL, with authentic arenas, team superfans, and a full array of personnel doing their jobs around the arena. Ushers, photographers, cameramen, and concessions attendants are all present. Check out the improvements yourself in this trailer:

NHL 15 drops the puck on September 9 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Look for a demo of the game featuring a rematch of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers on August 26.
