NHL 15 Patch Will Add In Some Of The Missing Features
But not all of them.
NHL finally makes its debut on the next generation platforms this year with NHL 15, and it appears to be a completely botched debut, lacking in features and game modes from last year to such a startling degree that it appears as if this year’s game will only have a fourth of the content that last year’s game had.
Now, EA have responded to all the complaints about the game, and confirmed that a patch will be shipping out after the game’s launch that adds in some (although not all) of the missing features.
These missing features include Online Team Play (which lets each player control one player individually in the game, leading to 6v6 matches) and amateur drafts for the Be A GM mode. As for the latter, even though the feature will be added back in some capacity, EA has confirmed that it will be different from how it was handled in NHL 14.
So essentially, it sounds like EA is fully aware that they are shipping an incomplete product. What with this game, The Sims 4, Battlefield 4, and so on, they really aren’t doing a whole lot to ingratiate themselves to me right now.
