EA NHL 18 game now allows Whalers as an expansion team

5 posts in this topic

this news was just released today, with the Whalers being mentioned below that the Whalers can be added as an expansion, are they trying to allow players get ready for a shakeup in the league?

 

The first NHL 18 details are in thanks to a survey that went out to fans over the weekend, and it looks like EA Canada will be adding quite a bit to this year's version, including a push toward a more arcade style of multiplayer.

 

Among other things, the survey details a new mode called "NHL Threes," which will take 3-on-3 overtime and expand it into a **ll game. It will include "over-the-top arena designs" and "multiple game modes," suggesting that it will be more than a simple one-off. It will also include a single-player "Circuit Mode" in which you "battle through leagues and complete challenges to make it to the big show."

 

On the gameplay side, NHL 18 will be revamping the deke system with the ability to string them together into combinations. It will also be including a "Defensive Skill Stick," which will give you **ll control over poke checks, keeping sticks extended, and sweeping back and forth for zone coverage, so it might be in your best interest to get good with those dekes.

 

Finally, EA Canada will be building out its franchise mode still **rther with the ability to create your own custom expansion. This is the natural next step from last year's relocation feature, which featured some really robust customization. Now you won't have to get rid of an existing team to build up an expansion. Say ****o to the new Hartford Whalers, everyone.

I read the article but it doesn't say anything much about the Whalers being an option for expansion team? Just that they're there

 

I asked EA to confirm and invited someone to come on the show to talk about it if they want.
