Debuting on the Frostbite Engine for the first time, NHL 22 has a gameplay trailer out to show off its slick new moves. Those moves enabled by the technology leap in detail:
Superstar X-Factors - elevate the most elite players in the league making their presence on ice more influential than ever.
Improved stick physics - new physically-true stick interactions mean more realistic movement along the boards without sticks poking through geometry, more accurate penalty calls from stick-on-body contact and battles for the puck that are fair and based on skill.
Player expressions - players are more lifelike than ever with detailed eye movement and tracking and facial expressions that react to the changing environment and events around them.
NHL 22 released October 15th for both last and next-gen Playstation and Xbox consoles. EA Play members will get access even earlier than that. The game does support Dual Entitlement, so buy it once per ecosystem and play it on both generations at your pleasure.
