Old Time Hockey Coming to PS4

There was a time period when hockey was really violent and brutal, sure it is still kind of rough, but watch some games from the 1970’s and compare it to today. It is a whole different style of play nowadays compared to the past and there is a new retro style hockey game that is looking to capture some of hockey’s violent past.

Old Time Hockey is a new hockey game being developed by V7 Entertainment and it hearkens back to both hockey in the 1970’s and sports games from the early 1990’s. Taking inspiration from NHL 94, NBA Jam and Tecmo Bowl, Old Time Hockey is a simpler style hockey game with 5 on 5 arcade gameplay that encourages the more violent and aggressive nature of the sport’s history.

The game will feature an exhibition mode and a story mode that focuses on a low level team in the Bush League. Check out the announcement trailer below and head on over to the official website for more details. Old Time Hockey is set to release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2017.
