Det er snart til NHL 21 og EA Sport præsenterer i dag en ny gametrailer forud for spillets release d. 16. oktober. Gametraileren viser de nye muligheder, spilinnovationer og tricks, der er med til at gøre NHL 21 til det mest realistiske gameplay til dato.

Offensive Gameplay

Inspired by the creativity of Alex Ovechkin, Nikita Kucherov, Connor McDavid and others, the team has added four groundbreaking new moves to the offensive arsenal – “no move” deke, behind the net bank, between-the-legs one timer and “The Michigan.” In addition to the highlight reel material, a multitude of slips, banks and chips help maintain speed and aggression when moving into the offensive zone. 

Neutral Zone

The most dominant teams in the NHL use fluidity through the neutral zone to generate dangerous scoring opportunities. In NHL 21, AI has been improved to ensure that lines move as a unit in all three zones, filling the proper lands and gaps to make for smooth breakouts, crisp transitions and dangerous scoring chances. 

Defensive Zone 

In NHL 21 breakouts have become significantly more important, as AI updates see teams forecheck aggressively as a unit. Defensive strategy has been geared towards neutralizing speed and forcing offenses to move east and west instead of north and south. Goalies have improved control in responsiveness in all situations, allowing for never-say-die moments. 

Players interested in checking out NHL 21, can pre-order the game now (PS4Xbox One).
