After more than 10 million votes were cast, Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has defeated Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban to be the NHL 15 cover athlete.
Bergeron reacted to the news:
Being featured on the cover of NHL 15 is a dream come true. The fact that the cover is selected entirely by fans is an incredible feeling. The passion and support from hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, is unlike any other sport and I’m so grateful to everyone who voted for me.
Coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, here’s a quick overview of what to expect from NHL 15:
NHL 15 ushers in an exciting new era of hockey video games with the most detailed and authentic hockey experience ever delivered. Introducing true collision physics for all 12 players on the ice, NHL 15 delivers a level of realism for a new generation of game consoles that allows players to be immersed in the sights, sounds and feel of the sport like never before. Players can now look, move, play and think like an NHL athlete with detailed new player modeling and an expansive new set of tools, including the Superstar Skill Stick and Vision AI that heighten on-ice control and player intelligence.
Emotions run high in NHL 15 as players compete in arenas filled with dynamically modeled fans that react to the play on the ice like they would in real life. Announced by an all-new broadcast team led by veteran NBC Sports hockey commentators Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, Eddie Olczyk and TSN on-ice analyst Ray Ferraro, NHL 15 takes revolutionary steps forward in authentic game commentary.
NHL 15 will be available on September 9 in North America and September 12 in Europe.
