NHL 22 is officially coming, and EA Sports wants you to take part in the upcoming beta. The company announced via social media that registration is now open for players.
By visiting EA’s website, players can sign up for what the company is calling the “NHL 22 Technical Test” for PlayStation 5 (PS5), PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X or S. The beta is expected towards the end of August with codes being emailed to those enrolled.
Those hoping to see a beta for the game on PC are sure to be disappointed. That said, that doesn’t necessarily mean the game won’t be coming to that platform. After all, the Madden 22 beta didn’t have a PC version but the game is still releasing there.
A beta for NHL 22 was previously spotted via data mining, but nothing had been announced. With the technical test finally coming at the end of August, fans should expect to start seeing more about the game in the coming days and weeks.
A Sigh of Relief for NHL 22 Players
Many have been worried about the status of the game after it didn’t appear during EA Play Week back in July. With the game likely coming with an October launch for the second year in a row, keep things until later in the summer just makes sense. By having a later reveal, it gives NHL 22 more of an exclusive news window rather than sharing it with Madden 22 and FIFA 22 which come out in August and September, respectively.
NHL 22 is rumored to be seeing major changes, including a jump to a new engine and more as it makes it’s debut on the next-gen consoles.
