NHL 21 announced

Annual hockey game planned for October release

Posted on

Electronic Arts has announced today that NHL 21 is coming on October 16. Stanley Cup winner Alex Ovechkin will be the game’s cover athlete, for the second time.

NHL 21 promises an overhauled Be A Pro mode. Impress the front office, go early on draft day, and chase greatness as players earn a spot on the first line, compete for the Stanley Cup, and become the league’s next best.

Players now have more options to take control of the game and impose their playstyle on opponents. Players can dazzle with slips, banks and chips, while pulling off some of the most recognizable superstar-inspired moves. However, players will also have to deal with improved goalie positioning and control, as netminders are adapting to the game’s skill level faster with brand-new desperation moves and animations.

Also new is HUT RUSH. HUT RUSH is a streamlined version of HUT that lets players jump into HUT games quickly, rack up achievements, and unlock rewards by scoring with style.

In World of CHEL, the new Ranked Seasons allow players to compete across each of the four modes - ONES, THREES, Drop-In or Clubs - to earn rewards and play in the new EASHL Club Finals.

Additionally, Franchise Mode adds the Trade Deadline. Just like the real trade deadline, the market value of players will fluctuate as the day goes on, and live trade alerts will move rapidly via the trade deadline ticker.

NHL 21 will be available on October 16, 2020 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
