NHL 19 Reveals Their Cover Athlete

At the 2018 NHL Awards this past week in good old Las Vegas, EA Sports revealed Nashville Predators’ Norris Trophy-winning defenseman and Olympic gold-medalist, P.K. Subban, as the NHL 19 cover athlete. EA says that for the first time in franchise history, NHL 19 allows players to journey from the pond to the pros and play on outdoor rinks in new and returning game modes.

Players can create a character and express their look and playstyle with over 900 new customization items including, for the first time, lifestyle apparel inspired by pond hockey. On the ice, the animation technology Real Player Motion (RPM) Tech delivers explosive-edge skating with more acceleration and responsiveness that looks and feels better. NHL 19 also lets players compete with and against over 200 of the greatest hockey legends to ever play the sport, including Wayne Gretzky.

In NHL 19, the sport returns to the ponds where players can compete under a unified progression hub called World of CHEL that unites EA SPORTS Hockey League, NHL THREES Drop In and two new modes, NHL ONES and Pro-Am.

  • NHL ONES pits three players against each other in a 1v1v1 free-for-all with no rules and no stoppages. Players can win to rank up to new outdoor locations and defend their position as king-of-the-hill.
  • Players can also play in any World of CHEL mode to progress their online Create-A-Character, unlock rewards, and customize their look and their playstyle.

In the news that EA released, they also stated that fans can enjoy all that NHL 19 has to offer while also paying tribute to stars of the past with the addition of Legends, featuring over 200 of hockey’s greatest from all eras, including Wayne Gretzky. Players can compete as Hero Teams that combine squads of superstars from the past and present for an ultimate fantasy matchup. Play with the best of the best from all eras in both single-player and multiplayer modes.

Finally, the youthful expression of today’s hockey is also represented in NHL 19 where, for the first time, players can create a unique look with lifestyle gear and clothing, including hoodies, jackets, parkas, and knits frame hockey lifestyle brands and unique custom designs. New playstyle classes and player traits also let players customize the way they perform on the ice, allowing fans the freedom to create and compete as the players they’ve always wanted to be.

Phew, that was a lot of NHL news to digest, but it seems that the team at EA Canada is continuing to try to up its game and once again get a great hockey game out the door.
