NHL 19 is set to release worldwide on September 14 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, bringing the most authentic hockey experience to date.
Players can lace up their skates and get ready to play against some of the greatest legends in the game. Play on outdoor rinks for the first time in the franchise, exploring frozen landscapes that highlight the on-ice action, or hone edge-work with Real Player Motion Technology.
Hockey returns to the outdoors
As mentioned above, NHL 19 will take the game back to ponds. For the first time in franchise history, compete in the EA Sports Hockey League, NHL Threes, Play Now, and brand-new modes NHL Ones and Pro-Am on the pond.
In NHL Ones, the gamer and two other players compete in a 1v1v1 free-for-all gauntlet where they can showcase their skills and creativity with no rules, no stoppages, and no limits.
Looks, feels, and plays better
With Real Player Motion Tech, a re-invented physics collision system, and over 900 original item designs to deck out your create-a-player, NHL 19 brings the most exhilarating entry to the franchise yet.
RPM Tech delivers beautiful animations, the ability to accelerate off corners, and movement that was never possible previously. These mechanics give the ability to explode off the edge of your skates and pick up speed in all-new ways.
Customised to express yourself
From authentic NHL apparel to pond hockey lifestyle clothing, players can express like never before, thanks to the thousands of outfit combinations available to players in NHL 19.
Over 900 new items are available to create-a-character in NHL 19 allowing designing a player that suits their personality. Players can show off your personality in the World of Chel, where they will compete on outdoor rinks in modes like EASHL, NHL THREES, and many more.
Over 200 legends of the sport
Players test themselves against the best of the best, or take dream team up against others as over 200 legends of the game are introduced in NHL 19.
Superstars of today’s game playing alongside historical figures of past seasons is another possibility to explore, particularly in Hockey Ultimate Team, where gamers have the chance to build a fantasy team thanks to solo challenges, online play, and much more.
The cover athletes

These two superstars will represent the spirit of NHL 19. With multiple editions available, these two talented players will have their own covers, as P.K. will represent the standard edition, while Gretzky graces the Deluxe and Super Deluxe covers.
