For the first time, HockeyAllsvenskan will be featured in the popular game EA SPORTS™ NHL™ 18.
HockeyAllsvenskan is one of the new leagues that is included in NHL™ 18 from EA SPORTS ™, launching September 15th. This means that for the first time fans get the opportunity to play with teams from HockeyAllsvenskan and take control of some of the future stars in the popular video game. The league is fully integrated into the EA SPORTS™ NHL™ 18, which means that all 14 teams, players and kits are recreated in digital form.
EA SPORTS NHL™ 18 is available worldwide on 15 September. NHL™ 18 delivers the creativity of today's young NHL with new Creative Attack controls and the first-ever Defensive Skill Stick. Play the fast-paced, arcade-inspired 3-on-3 EA SPORTS™ NHL™ THREES mode, or reshape the league entirely with the new Expansion Draft and your own custom 32nd NHL team. Do it all with the most co-op and competitive multiplayer options ever delivered in an EA SPORTS NHL™ game. To pre-order NHL™ 18 now, visit the official website.
“With NHL 18, our goal is to deliver the most complete hockey experience possible for all of our fans around the world. We’re very excited to bring HockeyAllsvenskan into the game for fans to play and enjoy,” said Sean Ramjagsingh, Senior Producer, NHL™ 18.
- HockeyAllsvenskan thinks it's great fun that EA SPORTS has chosen to pick up the league in the game, it shows that we have a very popular and appreciated league with a lot of fans. But that will also give us the chance of new fans in audiences and countries that we normally do not reach. Being part of the game strengthens our brand and will help build profiles in the teams.
