Everyone’s favorite new mascot is now a video game character! Gritty, the Flyers lovable mascot, is now playable in NHL20. However, he can only be chosen when playing ones or threes mode.
“We have Ones, which is an off-line version, where you and two other buddies can sit on your couch and play free-for-all pond hockey. We have a number of NHL stars, alumni players, and mascots that you can unlock with this mode and one of them is Gritty. So, you can play as Gritty against other mascots, against current starts like Conor McDavid, legends like Mario Lemieux. It’s great, great fun,” William Ho, creative director of EA Sports NHL, said.
You must work a bit to unlock Gritty. In threes, players are immersed into an arcade-inspired over-the-top hockey mode in a smaller rink.
Ho also said to not count out the friendly orange mascot as the cover star for NHL 21. The latest edition of the EA Sports NHL franchise is available for PlayStation 4 (PS4) and Xbox One. NHL20 was released on September 13th.
If you enjoy playing hockey video games and love the Flyers, you’ll love being able to play as Gritty in NHL20! What a great way to commemorate Gritty being with the team.
