In a new producer-hosted NHL 10 trailer, EA Sports is showcasing the upcoming title's "Battle for the Cup" mode. Essentially, the mode boils down to kicking off a best-of 1, 3, 5 or 7 game playoff series from the main menu, but tweaks to the game's crowd, AI and other enhancements crank the pressure on high to perform.
Also revealed (albeit last week) was the game's "Be a GM" mode (video after the break), where players take on the role of a team's General Manager and attempt to build a dynasty over his tenure as the man in charge. With so many additions and enhancements hitting the ice in NHL 10, we eagerly await more details on what rival NHL 2K10 has in store. We totally hope they drop the gloves for our hard-earned cash.
