FMV Returns From The Grave As First NHL 15 Gameplay Video Hits The Net

Ready for the face off
EA Sports' NHL 15 is heading to Xbox One and Xbox 360 this year and while we've seen a bunch of "sizzle" trailers and pre-renders, live gameplay has been tough to come by.
EA have done the right thing though, and released a direct feed gameplay trailer, which shows the introduction to a match between the St Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks, complete with full-screen video shots of St. Louis, and a strangely awesome mix of live-action and gameplay when the game's presenters Mike Emrick and Eddie Olczyk turn up to introduce the action. It's an interesting approach and one that we'll probably see more of from EA as time goes on.
And we thought FMV died with the Mega-CD and Mad Dog McCree.
NHL 15 is out on September 9th, with a demo coming on August 26th.
(Watch out for the buzzer beating one-timer at the end of the trailer. You just can't coach that.)
