NHL 20 Content Update October 25th


Check out our CHEL notes with our October Patch update here.

Dear Devs: Will Custom Music Finally Make a Return in NHL 20?

Since it is a topic in quite a few threads, I thought it deserved it's own. I really loved the custom music feature in the last-gen games. I'm aware that in the beginning of the PS4 (not sure about the Xbox one) era it wasn't possible to play your own music on the new systems. But now you're able to listen to your songs from a flash drive, and to import them into games as well. MLB The Show has a custom music feature that works great IMO:



There's lots of people complaining about the the soundtracks of the current-gen games. The return of custom music would solve their problems. And I know I'm not the only one that would love to put in own tracks and playlists for goal songs/horns, breaks, powerplays, PKs, intermissions, wins, menu music etc. The return of custom music would please a lot of people that like authenticity.

I bought every game of the series since NHL 97, but I've always been a strictly offline guy (I'm probably too old for all these online shenanigans). Since the switch to the new consoles, Franchise and other offline modes seem to get much less love. Being at least close to the real show is quite important to me (and others), thus the more customization options we can have, the better.

So, dear devs, are there any plans to bring back custom music?

    That is not even close to custom music.

    I do not want to necessarily listen to music every single minute I am playing hockey. But, for the times there is music, I want it to be my music. I want my own goal horns, etc.

    Spotify does nothing for this except play music over the game sounds.
  • This was in NFL 2k5 on an XBOX..Absolutely no excuse for every sports game to feature this in 2019. But, it's EA. Bare minimum and corner-cutting. They don't even fix or address glaring lies like offline Legends.
  • I am still incredibly confused why they chose this painful and cringe worthy soundtrack over the authentic goal songs. Like why would you choose a soundtrack that most people turned off on day 1 because it's so bad over the authentic goal songs which actually add authenticity to the game while you are PLAYING the game.
  • So, are devs only answering gameplay related questions?

    I agree 100%!. Get rid of soundtracks and bring back licensed goal songs. Just give us generic background music because honestly most of us turn it off after a few times playing anyways. Chelsea dagger and crowd chant, all 31 teams should have their goal songs instead. Spend the money on licensing those instead! Thank you.

    They don't even have to, just bring back custom music, EA could save some money, and we can put in whatever music we like. It seems so simple.
  • Custom Music would breathe so much life in to this game.

    LMAO very true.

    I do enjoy the option to have the generic music in the background versus the soundtrack so that I don't have to be reminded about a singer's favorite color.

    :D:D:D:D:D

    Yea I switch it up too every now and then. If at least we could block the songs we dislike the most, would at least be a start.
