Watch The NHL 18 Gameplay Features Trailer

EA Sports has released a brand new trailer for NHL 18 that showcases the game’s new gameplay mechanics.

The trailer touches on the new dekes that have been introduced, the debuting defensive skillstick, creative A.I., and 3-on-3 EASHL games.

Some of the new dekes include full one-handed moves, between the legs shots and passes, and the ability to perform multiple moves from the same stick position. For the defensive skill stick, defensemen can target poke checks and even angle your stick to cut off the forward.

Creative AI sees CPU teammates make better decisions with the puck, including bank passes and better breakouts.

NHL 18 launches on September 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Those who preorder the game’s deluxe edition will gain access to the game three days earlier on September 12.
