EA Sports has announced all of the details surrounding the upcoming open beta for NHL 18.
The beta will run from July 25 to August 1 and will be available to players who have registered online.
Both PS4 and Xbox One gamers will be able to participate.
For the beta, you will be able to play in three different modes: the EA Sports Hockey League mode, the all-new NHL Threes mode (a more arcade based, three on three gameplay), and Online Versus.
From EA Sports:
Lace up your skates and jump into 3-on-3 and experience the speed, skill and creativity of the today’s NHL. Bringing authentic NHL 3-on-3 overtime to EA SPORTS Hockey League, you can now choose to play 3-on-3 full matches, opening up more ice for you and your teammates to get creative, pull off big plays, and showcase brand new skill moves. With more space to attack – and to make mistakes – 3-on-3 EASHL is higher stakes with more competition and skills.
EA Sports’ NHL 18 launches on September 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One starting from $59.99 in the US. The preorder of the game’s deluxe edition will gain access to the game three days earlier, on September 12. One of the most interesting new things will be the ability to play an expansion mode, getting your chance to become the next GM of the expansion team Vegas Golden Knights and adding your custom 32nd team to the league.
