How to change the camera angle in NHL 21

Zoom, broadcast, overhead — you know the drill.

NHL 21 has a variety of different camera angles to choose from. From broadcast-like camera shots to overhead views that can allow you to see plays form in real-time, there’s something for everyone. But if you’re a newcomer to the NHL franchise, you might be wondering how to change the camera angle in NHL 21. It’s actually pretty simple to do, but there are a few steps involved.

First off, find the Settings in the NHL 21 main menu, or at the in-game Pause screen. Once you click on Settings, scroll over to the Audio & Visual Settings tab and click on it. Here, you will find a number of camera settings. To change the actual camera angle, move over to the Camera setting. You’ll be able to choose from a plethora of options, including a Dynamic camera, a Broadcast angle, or an Overhead setting. Additionally, you can turn the Auto Zoom on or off, as well as change the direction of the camera perspective.

Move to the Audio & Visual Settings tab, and you’ll be able to mess with the camera settings from there.

Our recommendation, as far as NHL 21 camera angles go, is to use the Overhead view. This angle is higher than most of the other options, thus allowing you to see more ice, and visualize and plan plays better.
