EA have released a new trailer featuring the Ultimate Team game mode that is found in their latest edition of their successful hockey title http://www.trueachievements.com/NHL-12-xbox-360.htm
The video opens by reminding people how successful the franchise has been regarding game awards, and then continues with an explanation of how the Ultimate Team mode is implemented this season.
For those players familiar with this franchise or any of the other sports games from EA, Ultimate Team should not be any surprise. For the uninitiated, the game mode requires players to collect sports cards featuring individual players, and use those cards to build up a team. The team can then be used to play against other players' teams online, or even when the opponent is offline, as the virtual team will be downloaded directly from EA's servers.
Although I'm not the biggest fan of the Ultimate Team mode, it seems to be widely played and does add to the number of online options offered by the game. NHL 12
is already available in Europe, and will release on September 13th in North America and September 15th in Australia.
