EA Sports has officially unveiled NHL 24, and the excitement is palpable. The game is scheduled to hit consoles on October 6, 2023. This installment of the game promises a blend of cutting-edge features and heart-pounding action.
EA has also announced the game’s cover athlete. It is none other than the Colorado Avalanche’s superstar defenseman, Cale Makar. You’ll be able to play NHL 24 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
The Exhaust Engine that is being introduced in the game will encompass two groundbreaking systems: the Sustained Pressure System and the Goalie Fatigue System. The first one rewards aggressive offensive players by temporarily reducing the opponents’ attributes. The Goalie Fatigue System diminishes the goaltenders ability to protect the goal as they receive more and more shots.
The physics-based Contact system will deliver lifelike body checks. It’ll enable players to execute powerful hits that can result in turnovers, shattered glass, or even sending opponents to the bench.
NHL 24 has also revamped its cross-play functionality. Players can now engage in various modes across different console generations, uniting PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One enthusiasts.
It doesn’t end there. The game introduces more features improving maneuvers, creating a more exciting goalie experience, and making more intuitive controls. The game is designed to immerse you in action and realism.
NHL 24 is poised to redefine the virtual hockey landscape. The technological innovation that has gone into its making combined with the thrill of the sport itself is all set to take you on an unforgettable trip through hours of competitive gameplay.
