Create Custom Plays
Take any team into Practice mode, and train them to run custom rush and in-zone plays in-game. Do you want your team to run cycle plays down low or feed the point for a one-timer? Record the exact movements of each player, and watch as the AI executes them during gameplay.
All-New Skating Engine
New analog speed control gives you the variance needed to glide into the zone with control, or to get a burst of speed to step up on a defender. With new skating animations and responsiveness, you have the control to perform crossovers to maintain speed, or to carve tight turns for an immediate change in direction.
