NHL 22 is another installment of EA’s hockey simulator series. It has been produced since 1994, which is quite impressive. Since the first game, the graphics have come an incredible way, which now results in a truly immersive experience. NHL 22 includes many upgrades and new features, including the X-Factors, which seem to be the apple of developers’ eyes.
NHL 22 introduces players to the new feature of X-Factors. These superstar players (with Auston Matthews, Artemi Panarin, and David Pastrnak in the lead) offer you the ultimate skills and special moves, like Shock and Awe, Make it Snappy, and Shnipe. The most elite shooting abilities in the game will take your matches to the next level.
Additionally, NHL 22 provides you with some new skating abilities. After all, the game is not only about shooting. Wheels will let you get out of agility, speed, or acceleration penalties; Elite Edges will improve your maneuverability with tight turns; Ankle Breaker will give you the opportunity to deke opponents at top speed with no penalty risk. Lastly, In Reverse will let you skate backward as smoothly as any other direction.
With the Frostbite-powered gameplay updates, NHL 22 includes new physics, updated visuals, and realistic animations. Enjoy the more visible visual data, players’ facial expressions, new stick physics, and environments. Choose if you want to play in Ultimate Team, World of Chel, Be a Pro, or Franchise mode, and become the ultimate hockey champion!
