NHL 14 Dynamic Ratings Updates

The developers of NHL have released more details on their upcoming NHL 14, scheduled to release September 10 in North America.

NHL 14 will now feature a dynamic ratings system for “Play Now” and “Online Versus” mode, based on how they play in real-life!

For example, if Sidney Crosby performs well over a stretch of games, then his in-game character will get a ratings boost, whereas if Crosby played poorly for a stretch, then his in-game character’s ratings will decrease.

You’ll be able to check which players are on a “hot” or “cold” streak but checking in the edit lines screen, or the Starting Lineups loading screen and checking a player singularly will tell you which categories are changed based on their streak.

Full details on the new Dynamic Ratings can be found at the link below:

Don’t forget to pre-order NHL 14 for exclusive pre-order content at your favourite game retailers! Details on NHL 14 pre-order bonuses can be found at the following link:
