NHL 15’s first screenshot looks almost lifelike

Electronic Arts has released the first screenshot for NHL 15 and, damn. It looks good. EA says NHL 15 "brings hockey to life like never before." Well, after seeing this screenshot, I'm a believer.

NHL 15 will be the first time EA Sports' hockey franchise appears on the Xbox One and PS4. As such, it offers "a new level of player likeness, intelligence and emotion; the most diverse and animated crowd of any sports game; and greater control with the Superstar Skill Stick." Additionally, as EA announced back in May, the game will feature 12 Player NHL Collision Physics as well as real puck physics.

NHL 15 is set to release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 this fall, though you can pre-order the game now for all sorts of extra perks.
