NHL 18’s first trailer featured the Penguins romping the Capitals, bringing back painful memories from the playoffs. But in EA Sports’ new NHL Three’s gameplay trailer, the Capitals, especially Alex Ovechkin, look like a million bucks. That is secondary however to just how awesome this new game mode is.
NHL Threes is like a mix of NBA Street and a homerun derby mixed into one. The mode is more arcade-y than the rest of the game, focusing on “bigger hits, faster gameplay, and highlight-reel goals through fun three-on-three matches.”
And did I mention mascots can play too?
