NHL 14 demo skates on to Xbox 360 and PS3 today

With all of the excitement surroundings Gamescom and the announcements that came of EA's press conference, I felt the need to remind you that the demo for NHL 14 is due out today on Xbox 360 and PS3. It features three modes: the NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, Play Now, and Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT). All three are detailed below.

Play Now – Powered by a generation of EA Sports innovation, NHL 14 is hockey at its best. In the NHL 14 demo, players jump into the third period of a game and play as either the Boston Bruins or the Chicago Blackhawks to experience the speed, skill and aggression of the two teams from the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.

NHL 94 Anniversary Mode – Players will have a chance to experience a heated third period between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL 94 Anniversary Mode. Featuring big goals and even bigger hits, the mode offers nods to its hockey video gaming roots through classic button controls, a retro presentation style including blue ice, classic star-shaped player indicators, organ music and much more.

Hockey Ultimate Team Tournament – Build, manage and compete in Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) to create a fantasy team without boundaries. HUT in NHL 14 introduces all new features including online seasons and an auction assistant. In the NHL 14 demo, take part in a mini tournament against the Halifax Mooseheads, Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks and Team Canada.

NHL 14 is due out for Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 10.
