NHL 24 Patch 1.4.0 Drops: All-Star Upgrades & Gameplay Tweaks

Revamped Goalies and All-Star Excitement Spice Up EA SPORTS™ NHL 24

Gameplay Enhancements: Goalie X-Factor Revolution

EA SPORTS NHL 24 just ramped up the ice action with Patch 1.4.0, unleashing a slew of updates and gameplay changes. For all the puck stoppers out there, get ready for the revamped Goalie X-Factors. The new abilities – ‘Light Work’, ‘Extra Padding’, ‘Whirlwind’, ‘Handled It’, and ‘Energizer’ – bring more strategic depth to your defense. Tailor your goalie’s skills to match your playstyle and dominate the crease like never before!

Balancing the Net: A Fair Play for Goalies

Size matters, but not in the way you think! Patch 1.4.0 introduces a critical balancing act for goalie sizes. Whether you’re rooting for a towering giant or a swift, smaller goalie, ‘Save Reach’ now scales by height, meaning less penalty for the smaller ones and more for the larger goalies. This tweak lets you pick your favorite netminder without stressing over size disadvantages. It’s a game-changer for goalies across the board!

Precision in the Crease: Goalie Save Accuracy

EA SPORTS™ doesn’t stop there – goalie save accuracy gets a major boost too. The closer and more aligned your goalie is to the puck, the higher the precision score. But beware, if they’re out of position, reaching for far-off saves, the precision score takes a hit. This change brings a more realistic, skill-based approach to goaltending, making those clutch saves even more satisfying.

All-Star Weekend: New Jerseys and a LAN Event to Remember

As the All-Star Weekend approaches, NHL 24 players can now sport the latest All-Star uniforms, adding some flair to the rink. But that’s not all – on February 2nd, 2024, witness the first NHL LAN event of the season. The EA SPORTS NHL All-Star Open pits top players like CadCooks, Deeks, Geimer, and Polgz against each other. The champion not only bags a cool $2,000 USD but also secures a spot in the North American Bracket. It’s a face-off you won’t want to miss!

Stay tuned to GamingLyfe for more updates and check out the full patch notes for all the deets. NHL 24 is heating up the ice, and we’re just getting started!
