I am always impressed that EA can keep bringing new gameplay aspects to the NHL players. This year’s big addition was the EA Sports Ultimate Hockey League (EAUHL).
Players are dealt a pack of starter cards and are sent to build up their fledgling team of all-stars from there by either earning in-game currency through their play on the ice or by purchasing them with real world money. The setup is pretty dense and shouldn’t be traversed by those not willing to delve into some seriously minute details, but hardcore hockey fans are going to get a kick out of it.
Take your team online or train up offline and earn pucks to buy more cards. While my team is pretty terrible right now, I plan to work my players and maybe get a few W’s on the board. They are nowhere near ready for online play though.
I do love the NHL series but my mind still seems to be on a another upcoming game. Can you guess what it is?
