EA Canada has announced a PlayStation 4 bundle for its upcoming NHL 18. Costing $379.99, it will include a 1TB PlayStation 4 console, a DualShock 4 controller, and a copy of NHL 18. The bundle will release September 15, the same day as the actual game’s release.
If you’re interested in NHL 18, make sure to check out our beta impressions of the game:
Three versus three is the name of the NHL 18 Beta, or at least it really should be since most people have tried 6v6 and versus multiplayer before. So while I could go into detail about those modes, which outside of gameplay tweaks haven’t changed much, I will spend the majority of this short impressions piece talking about the biggest addition to NHL 18.
Before I get into the new mode, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the interface in the beta. I know it might be a tiny thing for some but it felt quicker to me. This is something I have often complained about in previous games. Menus loaded quicker, the overall look was crisper, and it just felt better even though it’s the same basic UI in past games. The in-game menu has also seen a very nice update to it, especially in EASHL, where it tells you exactly who you are waiting for to begin a new period. This allowed me to direct my anger at that person directly.
