EA Sports decided it needs to assess the state of its hockey game.
And so we have a beta. Its available on the Xbox One until August 8. You can check the improved online mode and a new 3 vs 3 mode that appeared in the game.
Although the beta tests are open and all you need to do is download the beta client, there is some possibility that not everybody will be able to play. This is because the game is still in testing phase.
There’s not much we know about the game but it promises:
“(…)the creativity of today’s young NHL with new Creative Attack controls and the all-new Defensive Skill Stick. Play the fast-paced, arcade-inspired 3-on-3 EA SPORTS™ NHL® THREES mode, or reshape the league entirely with the new Expansion Draft and your own custom 32nd NHL team. Do it all with the most co-op and competitive multiplayer options ever delivered in an EA SPORTS NHL® sports game.”
The full game will be available on September 22.
