The "what you need to know" section mentions NHL 2022 as coming only for Ultimate. That's wrong and it's a mistake that comes from a console-centric perspective, since on regular GP PC you get it on EA play without needing Ultimate. It's already confusing for some people as it is to have a media outlet put up inaccurate information that at this point should be common knowledge.
NHL 22 has not been announced for PC Game Pass via EA Play. According to Xbox, it is only coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One...through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play.
I'm really excited to try Trek to Yomi. I have enjoyed everything I have seen and read of that game.
