For those that may have missed it, the NHL 20 Open beta was this past weekend. It gave us a chance to check out the CHEL mode as well as the new NHL Ones mode. CHEL mode is still CHEL tho it has been improved. Fans of that won’t be disappointed. Threes has also made its return which made me happy. Ones tho is pretty cool, tho the name is a bit misleading. Threes is a 3v3 game so a person would thing ones is a 1v1 game. It is not, but that is a good thing.
Ones may be my favorite addition to the game because it forces you to become good at puck handling and taking advantage of your opponents’ mistakes. See you will pick one NHL star, and face off against two others in a 1v1v1 game. that’s right it’s a three-man free for all. The graphics and sound are also top notch as you would expect. All in all, if you are a hockey fan this open beta convinced me to say this one is worth buying even if you picked up NHL19 assuming you aren’t just a casual fan that plays a game here or there. If you happen to have an older version like 17 tho, now is certainly the time to get this one. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
