You know that canny little trick developers like to pull? The one where they bellow about trailers being made ‘entirely from gameplay footage,' only for that to be a big ol' steaming pile of BS? Yep, EA Sports love that one. Here it is again, fresh from Gamescom.

But let's not be the cynical bastards of cynical cynicism we sometimes are. Whichever way you slice it, NHL 15 is looking more authentically hockeytastic than games ever have before. From what we can tell of this in-engine business, anywho.

Previously, we saw the spangly new realistic puck physics, and how they'd help the attempt to emulate the sport itself as closely as possible. Now, in this footage from the show, we see the atmosphere of hockey (yelling, burly dudes punching face, yelling to encourage more burly dudes to punch face) being brought to lavish life.

Yes indeed. These are crowd physics, right here. And that's not even a thing, which shows just how revolutionary we're being. Take a look at this suitably dramatic new trailer, as we await the game's September 9 release.
