Detailed information about the Be A GM mode in NHL 17

The new works of EA's "North American Hockey League career" NHL 17 is the 26th installment in the NHL game series and was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on September 13, 2016 in North America and September 15 in Europe. Compare to popular football video game and basketball video game, hockey video game is not so hot. But EA has kept its high standard and wants to make a better NHL series. NHL 16 which is released by EA on the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms has used the new teams set, but in other aspects, it's not obvious compared to NHL 15. NHL 17 will give players more free gaming experience through the most fit the current trend of deeper game modes. Then how about the new game?
 
Be A GM mode has also borrowed a few ideas from other sports sims. It’s similar like the story mode Journey of FIFA 17 and the MyCareer mode of NBA 2K17. This game mode has great market and is worth to making it better. And FIFA 17 has sold greatly thanks to this game mode.  In NHL 17, now called Franchise Mode, you don’t just control the coach and team, you also get to make calls about marketing, stadium maintenance, as well as scouting and trades. Although, you can get different departments to automatically make decisions if you don’t want to obsess over the small details.
 
You report directly to the team owner, meeting broad KPIs like upgrading the parking lot or hosting six play-off games. Ultimately, you also get to decide if you want to move the team to a new city. Although there are plenty of options, the impact of choices you make is difficult to quantify: you auto-scout players and hire them (or not), or you fix the bathrooms (or don’t). In the end you can always simply stop simulating games and take control of the team to get a couple of late season wins, if you need them to make it to the playoffs.
 
In short, EA is ambitious for NHL 17. After the total waste of time that was NHL 15 and the solid comeback of last year’s NHL 16, 2017 isn’t a season of significant change for this year’s NHL game. It’s more a season of consolidation and playing it safe. Although there are the minor changes typical of an annual sports franchise, the big ticket changes are sparse. Sparse, but not entirely without merit. In the end NHL 17 is a solid game. It has plenty of modes, a nod to the history of the game, and an excess of heavy hitting, fast action, and skillful teamwork.
