NHL 14’s Latest Trailer Showcases Gameplay Improvements to Passing, Puck Pickups, Chops, Pokes and More

EA Canada has been making some good improvements to NHL 14‘s gameplay, specifically stick related movesets such as passing, puck pickups, chops and pokes and more. NHL 14 will release on September 10th in North America and on September 13th worldwide for PS3 and Xbox 360.

While I appreciate the overall improvements to accuracy and control, one of the most interesting upgrades is awarding players a huge advantage during Face Offs if they hold their stick position before the puck drop, which prevents players from spamming and makes the Face Off more realistic. Watch the trailer below to see all the new features.
