When asked about the beta on the PlayStation 5, the account said that the size is expected to be over 30GB for users on that platform.
“For this beta, still [no] information,” they said. “But for alpha version [it was] +30 GB.”
The NHL 22 beta is also expected to come for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles. A signup, if confirmed, is likely to be announced when the game is officially revealed at, or around, EA Play Live on July 22.
When revealed, it’s also expected that the series will make the jump to the Frostbite Engine after eight games on the Ignite Engine. With the anticipated jump, many fans are hoping for a return of the franchise to PC. Though a beta on the platform shouldn’t be expected.
