For the cover of NHL 20, we will have Auston Matthews. Auston Matthews is a talented young player for the Toronto Maple Leafs. He will play a key role in order to bring out the game’s key new features. Matthews was obviously very happy when it was announced when he would be put on the cover. He said, “Growing up, I always admired all the players who got to be on the cover of the game. This is a very cool honor, and I am proud to represent my organization.” He further added that he’s very competitive about the game. So, he is excited to play against his teammates in NHL 20.
EA made the cover announcement during the NHL awards, in which the league’s best performers are awarded. A gameplay trailer for NHL 20 was also released. EA Vancouver is going to build upon the NHL 19’s introduction of Real Player Motion (RPM) Technology.
The system is designed to make the game more lifelike. The new game will also have a new feature that is called Signature Shots. With this, players like Matthews, P.K. Subban, and Alexander Ovechkin will have their recognizable shot styles brought into the game.
