X-Factor Updates


NHL 23 is introducing two completely new X-Factors to highlight the world-class skills of our two cover athletes. Sarah Nurse’s X-Factor is called “Relentless,” and it increases your ability to shoot and pass while off balance, reflecting how prolific a scorer Nurse is. Trevor Zegras’ move, “Skilled Up,” brings an entirely new skill move to the game: his famous flip pass over the net.


Last Chance Puck Movement


Bringing an all-new layer of authenticity and realism to the game, Last Chance Puck Movement introduces 500 new animations based on types of player contact and last-minute desperation plays. These new animations reflect real hockey and actual on-ice plays to develop and improve this specific – and important – area of gameplay.

Strategy


NHL 23 also brings more control over every action on the ice with updated strategies. Now included are the 1-3-1 power play and the 1-1-2 on the penalty kill, which counters the aforementioned 1-3-1. New Assisted Strategies send an in-game pop-up to notify players if it might be helpful to change their strategy in the middle of a game.


Franchise Mode


One highly-requested feature is coming to Franchise Mode: Custom Leagues. Become the true commissioner of your league by customizing nearly every setup option: choose the number of teams (6 to 48), divisions (2-8), and conferences in your league. Plus, you can even change the minimum and maximum salary cap for maximum control over your dream league.

Cross-Platform Matchmaking


Cross-Platform Matchmaking is coming to NHL 23 in a post-launch update later this year, and it’s going to revolutionize how you play online. Players across the same console generation will be able to play against each other in online World of Chel and Ultimate Team modes. This will reduce wait times in matchmaking by turning four matchmaking pools into two.


Online Versus Save Lines And Strategies


Nobody likes having to set up their lines and strategies every single time they go into online versus mode, so NHL 23 is introducing a new feature that lets you save your lines and strategies. Jump into games faster and be ready for any opponent.


Ultimate Team


Women’s Players in HUT

For the first time ever, Ultimate Team is expanding the available players even further with the introduction of women’s IIHF players and mixed women’s and men’s HUT rosters. Now you’ll have more options than ever when building your HUT squad, with the best players in the world available. NHL 23 live content and events will incorporate both men’s and women’s players, so standout players in both leagues will get recognized with special player items.

NHL 23

Hut Rivals


In an effort to provide more incentives to play (and win), a new immediate reward structure for HUT Rivals is being introduced: win-based rewards. If you get on a HUT Rivals win streak, you’ll get an additional reward on top of your typical reward—immediately after each win. The higher your division, the better the additional reward is. 

NHL 23 officially launches on October 14 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and is available now for those who purchase the X-Factor Edition. Grab your friends and gear up for the most dynamic, connected, and visually rich version of Chel yet.
