NHL 18’s Threes Mode Shown Off In New Trailer

One of the new features EA is introducing in the upcoming NHL 18 is Threes, a faster-paced, arcade-y take on hockey. Today, the publisher released a new trailer that highlights some of the ways it differs from the series’ more realistic approach to the sport.

EA describes Threes as a three-on-three arcade-inspired hockey experience with “bigger hits, faster action, bigger plays, beautiful dangles, and more goals.” There is no icing or offsides in the mode, and every penalty will result in a penalty shot. Threes will also feature its own unique single-player campaign that will challenge players with completing regional circuits. You can take a look at some of the action that awaits in the trailer above.

PS4 and Xbox One players have a chance to sample Threes early right now. It’s one of the three modes featured in the game’s open beta, which available for all players to join. The other two modes included in the beta are the traditional online versus mode and EA Sports Hockey League, a more authentic three-on-three game of hockey with “higher stakes with more competition and skills.” The open beta runs until August 8.

NHL 18 releases for PS4 and Xbox One on September 15. Those who pre-order the title will get it three days earlier.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
