NHL 13 makes changes to Hockey Ultimate Team

Sep 2, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

The next game in the long-running EA Sports’ NHL series is coming out in mere weeks (Sept. 11 if you live in North America) and NHL 13 will include a redesigned Hockey Ultimate Team mode.

Among the most noteworthy changes being announced are the removal of salary cap and career length restricts, which should give players more flexibility when building their team. In addition to that, team chemistry will play a bigger role in your on-ice success or failure. You’ll also have the ability to take on top HUT teams, even when the owner is offline.

EA has a video to provide a rundown of the changes being made to HUT:

    I think the Ultimate Team mode in NHL or Madden is something I’d have been pretty into when I was 8, but as an adult I don’t see the appeal. Like, fantasy draft mode but with virtual trading cards? Umm, okay…

      Ultimate team is around more because it makes them a lot of money than any other reason.

    Don’t buy it until we know there won’t be a lockout!!!

      …Yes. Because that makes sense. Deprive a game developer of money when the NHL and NHLPA only get a small cut of what comes from the game.

      Don’t be a tool.
