THIS IS BREAKTHROUGH HOCKEY
NHL 22 is as much of a superstar as the players on the ice in the most realistic hockey gaming experience yet.
Everything you need to know, right in front of you
AUGMENTED REALITY BROADCAST
Get the info you need without taking your eyes off the ice as key game stats and more are projected onto physical surfaces in the game via an augmented reality-like visual package. Plus, every time you execute a highlight-reel play, a 3D graphic will project over your player to pump you up and demoralize your opponent.
Real players, real faces, real hockey
PLAYER FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
Overhauled player likenesses, eye movement animations, and shaders for hair and skin make players look and act more realistic everywhere on the ice. Eye movement and facial expressions visibly react to the changing environment and in-game moments.
Win the puck, deke, and shoot like never before
Stick play has been overhauled with new gameplay physics, resulting in moves that look, feel, and affect games in true-to-life ways. Expect realistic battles for the puck, fouls called for stick-to-body contact, and more.

SKILL MOVES AND ENVIRONMENTS
New skill moves, environments, and X-Factors will stand out for all the right reasons thanks to the new visual details provided by Frostbite. New gameplay mechanics and animations will make X-Factor abilities shine even more as they visually affect each game and interact with other players and the environment.
