Ready to hit the ice with NHL 20? The Ultimate and Deluxe Editions of EA’s latest hockey experience are now here!
Launching on Xbox One and PS4 in Ultimate and Deluxe form, NHL 20 is EA’s latest attempt to replicate the intensity of ice hockey as they take everything that they’ve learnt over the years to provide the most cutting-edge experience yet.
NHL 20 launches in Standard Edition form come the 13th September – and you’ll be able to pick up a copy of that for just £59.99 – but for those who can’t wait, or just have to get their hands on the most content packed editions available, then today is the day to hit the ice. See, the NHL 20 Ultimate Edition and NHL 20 Digital Deluxe Edition are both here – and should you be a hockey fanatic, these will be your very best options.
NHL 20 builds on the previous EA hockey release of NHL 19 to provide the most realistic experience yet. It is this which will let you show off your puck skills with Signature Shots and style customisations, as you get the chance to compete in new game modes and replicate the careers of your favourite NHL players.
New shot animations are in place, whilst super fluid gameplay is found to be taken in at breakneck speeds, as a new broadcasting package ensures that taking part in NHL 20 is as close to getting involved in the real thing as is humanly possible. When you drop brand new game modes in to the action too, with ONES now playable with friends on the sofa, HUT Squad Battles delivering unique rewards, and the Eliminator mode providing perfect bragging rights, and it’s easy to see what and why EA have taken the route they have.
It is these bigger, bolder, brasher, editions of NHL 20 that are the main focus though and the Digital Deluxe Edition for £79.99 doesn’t just drop the 3-days of early ice-hitting action, but also include up to 5 HUT Diamond Player Choice Packs, a HUT Hometown Hero Choice Pack and a couple of Unlocked World of Chel Hockey Bags. And then the Ultimate Edition takes all that and just goes even bigger with 10 instead of 5 HUT Diamonds and an entry to the exclusive HUT Launch Competitive Season. It will set you back a rather cool £89.99 though.
NHL™ 20 introduces cutting-edge gameplay innovation to showcase your skills, more customization to unlock your style, and new modes to compete with friends. RPM Tech-powered gameplay introduces Signature Shots that replicate your favorite NHL players’ real-world shot styles. Over 45 new shot animations make every attack a threat, and new passing and puck pick-ups create faster, fluid gameplay executed at full speed. A revamped broadcast package delivers all-new visuals and commentary. Combined with over 1,100 new customization items for your club and character, your biggest goals look incredible during the action and in the highlight reel. Finally, NHL 20 adds three new game modes. HUT Squad Battles features weekly teams, built by athletes and artists, to challenge for unique rewards. The fan-favorite ONES can now be played with friends on the couch, and the all-new Eliminator mode in World of CHEL introduces winner-take-all competition where you and your friends compete to be the best in the barn.
