NHL 20 is adding battle royale

  • For those who don’t purchase each new edition of EA Sports’ NHL franchise annually, it’s often difficult to tell just how much it has evolved on a year-by-year basis. There are the continual and never ending tweaks to skating, shooting, passing and other maneuvers, but you wouldn’t notice that unless you go looking for them. A a new mode or two will usually be announced, perhaps some new change aimed at improving multiplayer, and a host of smaller improvements that are otherwise notable but don’t steal the spotlight compared to the bigger features.

     

    With NHL 20, it won’t be hard to see what’s changed. That’s because developer EA Vancouver, in addition to the usual assortment of gameplay shifts and additions that come with any annualized sports franchise, is expressly taking aim at how it’s all presented. The entire broadcast package, from the motion graphics to the commentary, is undergoing a major overhaul. Are you looking for Cheap NHL 20 Coins?

    A team OVR rating is based on the mix of all individual player ratings, so we should see some increase to that in NHL 20. It would be hard not to give each player on the team some sort of upgrade. With larger ones coming for a handful of players. I’d expect to see the Carolina Hurricanes at 90-91 OVR at the start of NHL 20. The ratings over the next few slides are predictions. I wish I was privileged enough to know the actual ratings but sadly, I’m not. Which players are going to have the biggest impact on the Carolina Hurricanes OVR rating? It’s time to take a look.

     

    Moving to game modes, NHL 20 is adding battle royale, really. Called Eliminator in NHL 20, this competitive mode is a winner-take-all competition inspired by battle royale, EA says. It comes in two versions: Ones and Threes Eliminator. In Ones, 81 players compete against each other though not at the same time in what EA calls a survival tournament that plays out until one player wins. The Ones mode was introduced in NHL 19, and it features groups of three players duking it out solo. These matches will continue until one player is crowned grand champion. In the Threes variation of Eliminator, which is basically Squads from battle royale, teams of three will compete until one team remains.

     

    Top NHL players will be skating on the Rideau Canal this fall, in the upcoming NHL 20 video game. One of the new game features in EA Sports upcoming release was adding four new outdoor locations, bringing the game to never before seen places and iconic locations like the capital's famous Rideau Canal. A picture can be scene on the gaming website that shows the city's popular Corktown Footbridge overlooking two makeshift ice rinks on the frozen canal. Both Edmonton Oilers Captain Connor McDavid and New Jersey Devils Subban can be seen in another picture playing on the Canal.
