NHL 18 Franchise Mode Trailer Released

NHL 18 is just three weeks away, and EA Sports has released the latest trailer to build up the excitement for this year’s installment.

The new Franchise Mode trailer touches on new features coming to the mode, including expansion, in-season contract negotiations, and changes to the prospect rating system.

Players will be able to create their own expansion team to enter the NHL as the 32nd team. They also get to create their brand new AHL affiliate in cities like Helsinki, Quebec City and Kansas City.

Also, for the first time, players will now be able sign players mid-season to contract extensions.

NHL 18 launches on September 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Those who pre-order the game’s deluxe edition will gain access to the game three days earlier on September 12. EA Access subscribers will get to play even earlier, on September 7.
