EA Sports to Release Special Edition NHL 19 to Honor Wayne Gretzky

So, if you are a fan of the NHL, or just a plain old Canadian, then you know who number 99 was, and still is, as Wayne Gretzky was a Canadian born hockey star that is considered one of, if not, the best players to hit the ice. Well, EA Sports is paying homage to him as they have announced A Sports NHL 19 ‘99 Edition’, and it’s already availble for a limited time as a digital download on the Xbox One.

The 99 Edition features new cover art of The Great One himself and added benefits in Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) including the choice of one-of-five Gretzky player items as a permanent addition to one’s rosters, eight gold packs and the choice of one-of-six NHL legends.  

The NHL 19 ‘99 Edition’ comes with the option of one-of-five Wayne Gretzky player items from the Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues, New York Rangers or Team Canada for gamers to add to their HUT roster. Additionally, gamers can choose one-of-six NHL legends to add to their HUT roster, including Mark Messier, Guy Lafleur, Marcel Dionne, Mats Sundin, Peter Forsberg or Brett Hull. Gamers can pair their choice legend with Gretzky, as well as over 200 Legends and alumni available to play in HUT, to form a dynamic line-up of all-time greats.

EA Sports states that the Great One will feel as dominant as ever on the ice, thanks to Real Player Motion (RPM) technology, redefining player movement and control. A new physics collision technology adds to gameplay innovation to create jaw-dropping hits that are more life-like, varied, situationally contextual and satisfying. Providing a true blast from the past, Gretzky joins a roster of over 200 playable legends and alumni, the largest contingent of available legends in EA SPORTS NHL history.
