As we said in our first look at NHL 19, the latest hockey title from EA Sports boasts the biggest leap in player control we’ve seen this console generation. Powered by the same Real Player Motion technology used in EA’s FIFA, Madden, and UFC titles, the skating fidelity is finally making strides in a positive direction.
Players have much more burst skating out of a stop, and you can move more accurately in small spaces. EA even designed three different skating styles for players of various sizes. Though EA strangely decided against showing regular gameplay so you can see how it works in the wild, the latest gameplay trailer (showcased above) gives you a much better glimpse of the new edgework that’s possible in NHL 19.
