Hockey franchise adds Superstar X-Factors
Electronic Arts has announced the launch of NHL 22, the first EA SPORTS NHL game powered by the Frostbite engine.
The new engine promises overhauled player likenesses and uniform micro-details. Through the new broadcast elements, players can see game stats integrated directly into the action through overlays on environment surfaces.
Superstar X-Factors make the best players feel distinctly like their real-life counterparts. This unique ability system elevates the most elite players in the league, making their presence on the ice more influential than ever with traits based on their real-world skills.
Be A Pro takes players deeper into the game with fresh multi-season storylines with a re-designed progression system that now includes X-Factors, and the ability to enhance characters based on skill and play style. The World of Chel has been streamlined with a new hub and a revamped Party Flow that makes migrating from one game to another with friends easier.
In early December, a new game update will add Roster Sharing, the long-awaited community feature that gives players the ability to download and distribute their top player rosters to use in Franchise mode.
Developed by EA Vancouver and EA Bucharest, NHL 22 is now available on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, as well as Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
