The game team's been hard at work enhancing NHL from top to bottom. From faster responses, to smoother transition, read all about the new and improved features in NHL® 20.
We’ve introduced the next innovation in Real Player Motion (RPM) technology. Superstar Signature Shots allow your favorite NHL players to get the puck on the net using their trademark moves from real life.
Revamped animations mean players no longer slow down when doing things like passing and picking up the puck. Contextual animations make NHL® 20 gameplay feel more lifelike than ever.
Finally, goalies are able to more accurately control the puck . In NHL® 20 they can now control the pace of the game with controlled saves, redirects, and a new suite of covers.
Two-man booth commentary
James Cybulski, the new play-by-play announcer, and Ray Ferraro, the main color commentator, take over as announcers. Their back-and-forth banter is sure to make matches sound like the real thing.
New broadcast graphics package
We’ve updated our displays so that you have more space on your screen to smack the puck around. The score clock is now on the bottom of the screen, which also frees up visibility and mimics the tickers you see on TV.
Play of the Game sequences
Celebrate victories and great shots from other players online with the Play of the Game sequence. At the end of every Hockey League and HUT game, we’ll show off one stand-out goal, save, or hit with slow motion and camerawork, making you look great.
With a new Squad Battle mode and new rewards on the horizon, there’s plenty to get excited about with NHL ® 20.
Here’s what you can expect to see in HUT this year. You can also read a full deep-dive on our NHL HUT game modes .
