Video games – « NHL 22 » graphically upgrades and confirms


After having stood still for a long time, the hockey franchise is finally renewing itself … without revolutionizing the genre.

We’ve been waiting for it for years: EA Sports’ Frostbite engine is finally making its way into the rinks. Tested on PS5, « NHL 22 » is beautiful and fluid, and the animations more polished. In addition, the DualSense brings a lot of novelties through the microphone and adaptive triggers, which reinforces the feeling of immersion.

Another novelty: the appearance of the X-Factors, kinds of special abilities specific to star players such as McDavid, Crosby and others. These abilities are especially useful in World of CHEL mode, to personalize your player by choosing the right skills to apply to your avatar. The more the career advances, the more the number of different X-Factors increases.

When it comes to gameplay, the series also takes a leap forward and becomes ultra-realistic. Those who prefer the arcade are not forgotten, thanks to the many more “fun” modes, such as NHL Threes or Ones Eliminator. « NHL 22 » has something to delight ice hockey fans with its new presentation and its many game modes, not to mention the presence of all National League clubs. Difficult for fans to spend the winter without falling for this new episode.

PS4, PS5, One, Series X / S. EA Sports. Multi.
