EA Sports won't release NHL 16, the next game in its pro hockey series, until September 15. However, a major part of that game, the EA Sports Hockey League, can be tried out now in beta form if you are a member of the EA Access subscription service on the Xbox One console.
EA Access already allows gamers to play over 10 full EA games for $4.99 a month or $29.99 for a year. Those users can download NHL 15 to get the access to EA Sports Hockey League beta. EA says:
"This fan-favorite online team mode has been reimagined and lets you choose specialized player classes to deliver a balanced competitive experience on the ice. Player skill and your ability to play as a team will now be the determining factor in who wins and loses hockey games."
The beta period will last until August 6.
