NHL 22 Game Mode Updates

Ultimate Team

NHL 22 Game Mode Updates

50 X-Factor players will get special upgradeable versions called Power-up player items in HUT. These items start out lower rated than the player’s base item, but they can be upgraded at launch to be +1 OVR from their base. These items can be upgraded further throughout the season based on live content, and as they move up the “upgrade tiers” they might unlock new synergy slots, customization options, or ability unlocks. It costs either HUT Coins or special Power-up collectibles to upgrade a Power-up item.

World of Chel

Make your World of Chel player even more unstoppable with an X-Factor ability. Pick one that suits your style of play and add it when customizing your player.

Be A Pro

Similarly to World of Chel, in Be A Pro you can earn X-Factor abilities as you progress and upgrade your player. Choose your paths and storyline, then complete long-term challenges to unlock X-Factor abilities.

Franchise

 

New X-Factor reports in Franchise mode show X-Factors on both pro and amateur scouting reports, adding another layer to the Fog of War system that requires scouting to unlock. Use X-Factor reports to plan and build your team, as these abilities can influence trade value and team management. Maximize line chemistry by utilizing players with different X-Factors that complement each other.
