EA Sports Hockey League (EASHL) is back for NHL 19. This year, it will be part of the brand new ‘World of CHEL,’ a sector of the game that figures to see the most activity. World of CHEL (WoC) includes ONES, THREES Drop-In and Pro-Am modes in addition to EASHL.
According to EA, “These game modes offer different ways to explore the impact each player class has, and with recently-unveiled mechanics like RPM skating and overhauled collision physics, you’ll be able to customize your character to suit your playstyle.”
The biggest feature added in WoC is finally being able to customize player classes, skills and traits. WoC offers each player five loadout slots, each of which can be fully customized. There are 12 different skater classes. From there, you can change the player’s height, weight and handedness. Next, add two traits and a specialty to boost your ratings even further. No matter what type of player you are, there’s a player build for you in NHL 19.
Additionally, WoC has added over 900 pieces of hockey gear for use in casual modes. From parkas to beanies, there are no limits to the possibilities for customization.
NHL 19 is available on Xbox One and PS4 on September 14. If you pre-order the Legend Edition or Ultimate Edition, you’ll unlock early access and be able to hit the ice on September 11. SGO will have ongoing coverage of news and information about NHL 19 throughout the lead up to release day.
