We thought the series’ new-gen debut was solid enough in our 6/10 review: “NHL 22 surprises by making its debut on a new console without removing any of its modes, but those who played NHL 21 may find this version a little too familiar. The switch to Frostbite does massively improve the fidelity of the rink – even if character models still look downright demonic – but should that really be the biggest change to the game?” There’s little else to add here – you’ll already know whether you want to download it or not – so we’ll leave you with a hearty GO RANGERS and remind you that you can find a list of All EA Play Games on PS5, PS4 through the link.
So, then. There’s no word on FIFA 22 or Battlefield 2042 joining the EA Play catalogue just yet, and instead, NHL 22 is about to be vaulted. With the start of the ice hockey season – see what we did there? – On May 12th, EA Canada’s skating sim will be released from the dungeon and will be available for free download and play on PS5 and PS4 for subscribers.
