New NHL 18 Trailer Shows Playable Mascots


Electronic Arts today uploaded a new NHL 18 trailer to their EA Sports YouTube channel promoting the return of the 3v3 mode, and also included a surprising feature at the end: playable mascots!

That’s right, in NHL 18 you’re going to be able to play as the mascot of your favourite team. It appears the mascots can also perform unique moves and abilities, however the exact details of this are yet to be revealed. We’re excited to get our hands on a playable Fin the Whale from the Vancouver Canucks!

You can check out the new NHL 18 trailer featuring 3v3 mode and mascots below:

 

Official new NHL 18 trailer description:

An all-new 3-on-3 hockey experience with bigger hits, faster action and more goals. NHL THREES is inspired by fun, pick-up-and-play arcade sports games where you can play any way you want to, online or offline, co-op or competitive. NHL Threes amps up the action with faster skating, bigger bone-crushing hits, and more open-ice to create plays, execute big dangles, and score highlight-reel goals.

NHL 18 is scheduled to be released on September 15, 2017 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can pre-order the game on EA Early Access here, and head to the official NHL 18 website here.
