NHL 20 Patch 1.50 Available - Patch Notes Here

A new NHL 20 game update is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, fixing some issues with gameplay, presentation, World of CHEL and HUT. They will also add the True Dynamic 9 Pro helmet, some new jerseys and give users the ability to skip Play of the Period replays.

Once the patch is available, we will update this post.

UPDATE: (1-30-20) The patch is available now for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Check out the patch notes below.

Gameplay

  • Fixed a rare case where the puck could stop dead when passed or shot around the boards
  • Various interception logic tuning
  • Reduced player ability for pickups outside skaters field of view (1 hand behind the back pickups) so they do not play as often and as unrealistically fast
  • Defensive awareness attribute made more effective and tuned the windows in which players can intercept pucks within their field of view
  • Improved player head tracking of the puck
  • Players tuned to have less balance/preparedness when pivoting or backskating with the puck
  • Fixed the issue where holding pass would negate spins from working which opened up holes in skating blends
  • Fixed an issue where slapshots in the defensive end would target your own net instead of the left stick direction
  • Further improvements to covers for pucks underneath the goaltender
  • Fixed a case where the goalie would continuously lose the puck when performing a between the legs cover
  • Fixed a few cases where the puck was able to slip past the goalie unintentionally while they were tight to the post
  • Increased the amount of stick contact on legs/skates needed to cause a trip

Presentation

  • Added additional commentary
  • Added consensus skip to Play of the Period replays

  1. Yes the patch will install automatically (as long as you have your console set to keep my games up to date - xbox), no it's not a tuner. As far as I know, there hasn't been any tuners released.
    Typically to see the new jerseys, all you have to do is download the new roster that gets released after the patch and make it the active roster.
    I sure hope this patch fixes whatever glitch that causes both goalie stats during the game intro my Franchise mode to show the home goalie's stats...
    Also are we getting more 'guest commentary' options? They have a whole section in the settings for it but still just Snoop Dogg, and that one's really wearing out it's welcome already. >_>

    Just started a season's game and it looks like they fix it :) Yes !
    As for Snoop, you can shut him off in the settings...

    What is the date stamp on the new roster because the latest I have is Jan 17 2020 and I can’t seem to get the latest updated content
    Looks like a patch, tuner and new roster today.
    Rosters are dated 1/29 (if I remember correctly). Glad goalie stats are fixed, I forget to pay attention in the game I just finished.
    Back to my Seattle Sea Lions franchise!

    so franchise gets the shaft again

    Really? To me these all look like Franchise Improvements. :)

    If I could go back in time, I'd tell my eyes not to look at the new Avalanche and Kings jerseys..... Ouch !
    I think you guys missed the Jets and Flames Heritage ones, these are nice !
    Help me out guys. I have never seen Play of the Period. 
    Are we talking about the replay right after the period ends?  Maybe I just don’t know because it doesn’t say it. 
    I’m talking season mode by the way.

    That's why you've never seen it - it's a HUT/EASHL only thing. Not even regular online versus has it.

    Those are both in since the December patch, I think.
    Make sure you guys download the latest ''gameplay update'', the latest tuner...
    That being said, it is confusing, cause it looks like it stays version 1.00 ??? Anyone sees the same thing I am ?
    I just played a game with the ''latest'' tuner plugged in my slider set, and it played very well ! You can really see the head tracking for the puck and players adjusting when they receive a behind the back breakout pass. It looks and feels amazing !
    Will play a few test games and will surely switch to the latest tuner in my set, if the gameplay stays the same :)

    Ohhhh ok. Cool. Wondered if I was missing something.
    You know, as I've mentioned in several posts, I've been with this series since NHLPA Hockey '93, on the SNES, and I'm beyond disgusted with the current online portion. With that, what in the entire f#$k is the deal with attempting to play goalie in EASHL (6vs6)? In NHL' 19, my save percentage wasn't even remotely as ridiculous as this year's travesty, and nowhere near the amount of soft and weak goals getting vacuumed by the back of the net.
    How and/or why in the blue hell are human goalies being treated so poorly? It's almost as if the forwards are shooting at an empty net, regardless of your positioning. The puck WILL find it's way to give the other team an advantage, despite every effort to ensure that it doesn't.
    With that, and now 13-straight losses as a goalie (apparition), I've had enough of this lazy, weak, pathetic, lackluster, etc., version of a hockey video game. This piece of sh*t game has been permanently removed from my PS4.
    The fixed goalie records/stats applies to existing Franchises? I downloaded the patch/tuner, but not the roster, so will need to do that to get the jerseys.

    Yes the Goalie stats at the Popup at the beginning of the game are solved, but the stats from the individual Team leader in Player scoring during the game are now wrong. They also did not remove ,, first game after trade ,, first career Goal ..... so it doesn’t matter how many Games your traded Player plays, or how many Goals he shots, it will always be the first one. Pathetic !
    Can anyone tell me if season mode has been patched?
    By that I mean, when you try to move players it always says something like
    "Team 'X' would have less than 2 playable goalies" or something like that.
    Despite no goalies being involved in the movement, thus making season mode player movement pointless.

    Those are in but they didn't add the Buffalo Sabres blue 50th anniversary jerseys

    Stats are fixed in existing Franchises. Game is playing well following the patch-tuner. Happy with what I've been seeing.

    Last Game with MTL against PIT* : Trailing 2-0 after 2nd period, going into 3rd, lead 3-2 with 1:12 remaining, PIT scores 3-3, going into OT and i lost 4-3.
    What a Game ! Great Job EA !

    Pretty much, a tweak to passing but that's about it. (penalties 4/4, fighting 2/2 - 7 minute periods)
    What's the tweak? Accuracy?

    I believe it's just pass assist bumped up to 50 as my passes were all over the place. I also use the "classic" camera which is my favorite camera all these years.
    I'm about 0.500 with my Seattle Sea Lions.
