EA Sports is letting players of the upcoming NHL 14 video game to shape their legacies both on and off the ice.
Inspired through interactions with actual NHL and junior hockey players, NHL 14 introduces the new "Live the Life" mode, poised to take the place of the franchise's standard "Be a Pro" career mode. In the past, players took their created pro from the minors to NHL superstardom. This time around, players not only can climb the league ranks, but they will truly live the life of a NHL pro on and off the ice.
From interactions with teammates outside of the rink, to choosing words wisely in media interviews, to their on-ice performance, gamers will be prompted to make decisions that affect their pro's ratings and likeablity with fans, teammates, family and management. As players make the right choices, their pros will be rewarded with higher ratings and endorsement offers that promise extra cash and unprecedented exposure, such as magazine covers, billboards and the esteemed cover athlete recognition on the video game itself.
NHL 14 is scheduled for release on September 10 in North America and by September 13 worldwide for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
