  • 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.
