NHL 15 Content Update #3 now available on Xbox One and PS4
Online Team Play, Rookie draft, and tons of gameplay improvements
EA Sports has released the third major content update for NHL 15, which is now available for download on Xbox One and PS4. While the update contains your typical gameplay and presentation changes, the two major features it brings are online team play and the Rookie Draft in Be a GM.
Online team play allows you to play online with up to ten players, locked to a single position using real-world rosters. Matches will be 5 versus 5 ranked with AI controlled goalies.
Also, for the first time in the NHL franchise, you can become a real NHL GM and feel the pressure of a rookie draft. The draft is set to a default of three minutes per pick, but if you need more time to make a pick or work out a trade then you can call a timeout. Trades can be made at any time during the draft, and the computer will also propose trades to each other as well as to you.
In addition to these two new modes, here are the rest of the update notes:
