NHL 18 itself promises a host of new features and new game mdoes. Connor McDavid will be on the cover of the NHL 18, it’s a well-deserved honor for the Oilers captain, who scored 100 points last season, and won the Hart Memorial Trophy and Ted Lindsay, two prizes awarded to the player considered most valuable to his team. It turns out that NHL 18 Coins are matter to each players.
Of course, a feature many have long waited for is something to even the ice with all those offensive skill-stick superstars, and for the first time ever, the series is touting a defensive skill stick as well. That means when you’re skating backwards as the lone hope on a 2-on-1 back the other way, you can swing your stick back and forth and try to take away both the shot and the passing lane if you’re good enough.
Another major new element is a brand new game mode that feels like a throwback to the Wayne Gretzky or NHL Hitz days of arcade hockey. The brand new NHL THREES combines bone-crunching hits and crazy shots with the 3-on-3play of the NHL’s relatively new overtime rules.
NHL 18 will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. EA SPORTS wants to give you even more new details, reference from here. Welcome to NHL 18, faster, more physical, more goals: a good old arcade gameplay, NHL THREES will be playable in many ways: in local multiplayer, online and in campaign mode, which opposes you to different opponents, much like a league.
