Thanks for being part of this journey as we head into the launch of NHL 15 on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, the start of a new generation of hockey videogames. We’re incredibly proud of the next-generation gameplay and presentation experience we’ve created for all our fans. From the Next-Generation Hockey Player and True Hockey Physics to the Unrivalled In-Arena Experience and a revolution in Broadcast Presentation, I’m extremely proud of what our team has delivered in one year on new technology. The focus on a new gameplay and presentation engine will not only deliver a great game now, but also give us the foundation to deliver next-generation hockey experiences to you for the years to come.

However, we’re not done. We’re committed to keeping the experience fresh throughout the hockey season, in addition to the roster and ratings updates you’ve always received, the list below contains the free content updates for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 we’re working on and our expected window on when you will see them in the game:

September:

Playoff Mode
Create a custom offline tournament bracket with up to 16 teams from any of the 12 leagues in the game. Play or simulate each game and track player and team stats throughout the tournament.





Be A Pro - Coach Feedback
Get the coach’s feedback while you are on the bench. The coach will give you tips on how to stay on top of your game and grade you on your play.

3 Stars of the Game
At the end of the game, see the three stars and their high level stats. Will apply to every game mode.



Hockey Ultimate Team
Several content updates, including:
• Changed layout and navigation in HUT store
• New animations for player items
• Improved edit lines screen to better identify players that are injured or require contract extensions

October:

Online Team Play
Online multiplayer mode where every player on the ice can be human controlled.



GM Draft
For the first time in the NHL franchise, you will be put on the clock and feel the pressure like real NHL GM’s. You will now only have 3 minutes to make a draft pick. If the pressure is too much, you can also call timeouts to extend the amount of time you have to make a draft pick or potentially negotiate a trade. You can make trades at any time during the draft. The CPU will also propose trades to each other and the user throughout the draft.

------

As always your feedback is fundamental to how we make NHL better and better, so we will also be looking to what you want to see implemented in the game.

Thanks
Sean

Can you elaborate on why the online team play is only 5 vs 5.

Thanks

So will "Sim to Next Shift" not be patched? Or is it still being looked into and will be updated about it at a later time?

Yea. Would like to know why its only 5vs5 as well. Is goalie not going to be human? It says "every player on the ice"

Goalies add another level of complexity. We want to get OTP into your hands asap as we continue to work on fleshing out the experience.

No goalie control.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. The answer may not be what most want to hear, but I appreciate you taking the time to do so none-the-less.

So in the spirit of continued open communication, can you further elaborate on if and when it might be implemented?

Once again thanks in advance.

Thanks for the message. At this point, i don't have any info to share on goalie control. It's obviously a big part of the EASHL experience which we are building towards as part of our commitment to bring that mode back.

I actually think this is for the best, at least until when or if lobbies are added.

It will be very difficult to find a random drop-in game where both goalies are actually competent. This will ensure there's no trolling and that most games actually play out past the first period.
