EA Sports has just unveiled a trailer for a brand new game mode from NHL 17, The World Cup of Hockey. A simulation of the upcoming international tournament taking place in Toronto this September, The World Cup of Hockey features all of the official World Cup teams, rosters, and uniforms. Players can also recreate the tournament’s official schedule.
Players can select how many international teams they and their friends want to control and battle for international hockey supremacy in this offline tournament.
Unfortunately, The World Cup of Hockey will not be integrated into Franchise or Be a Pro Mode and will only be available as a standalone game mode. However, disappointment aside, it looks like there’s still a lot of fun to be had competing in this best-on-best tournament.
