As promised, EA has revealed their NHL 22 gameplay trailer today. The team goes over the details of the Frostbite Engine, Superstar X-Factors, enhanced stick physics, augmented reality UI and more.
- Augmented Reality Broadcast: All new augmented reality-like visual design seamlessly integrates game stats directly into the action through overlays on environment surfaces.
- Player Facial 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.
- 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.
- Skill Moves & Environments: new moves and environments will shine with amazing detail thanks to Frostbite.
We will have a breakdown up shortly, but let us know your thoughts.
