NHL 17 Debuts World Cup of Hockey Mode, Trailer

International hockey fans now have a new reason to pick up EA’s latest entry in its NHL series, with the announcement of the all-new World Cup of Hockey mode.

With dozens of players from eight teams across the globe, NHL 17’s World Cup of Hockey mode promises to bring the same intense hockey gameplay to a larger stage. As showcased in the trailer below, players will have access to both current and retired international players with which to compose their teams, and compete against others from teams across Europe, Russia, and North America.

With the real World Cup of Hockey kicking off September 17, sports gamers will be able to access its virtual counterpart and the numerous other modes of NHL 17 a few days earlier, when it launches September 13 on PS4 and Xbox One.
