NHL 22 patch notes add new player likenesses
Three weeks into NHL22 and a lot of bugs have already been fixed. There were four new player appearances added to the game, along with improvements in AI, Physics, Shooting, and many other areas. Let’s look at some highlights from the NHL 22 patch.
Improvements in gameplay
Some goalies attempted to cover the net in some cases. This has been corrected. A fix has been made for the AI goalie who would drop the puck onto the bench. There is also a tuning improvement to the way it tracks the puck.
The shooting process has been improved. There are now more options for deflection locations and a better way to catch and release long distance one-timers. These were not considered good quality shots.
To make it easier to pick your team, an X-Factor filter was added to the Player search in Franchise Mode.
A few bugs have been fixed in Franchise mode. One example is the issue in which an NHL goalie could accidentally be assigned an AHL mask. There has been an improvement in line chemistry visibility and a problem with Career Goals not updating correctly in the record books.
This November update has seen the addition or updating of a number of team uniforms. This includes the Los Angeles Kings’ Alternate Uniform, Chicago Wolves Alternate Uniform, and the Home Away and Alternate Uniforms for the Providence Bruins, and the Kansas City Mavericks.
