NHL 22 technical test planned for late August

An NHL 22 technical test is planned for later this month, EA Vancouver’s Clement Kwong and Sean Ramjagsingh told Stevivor as part of a special hands-off preview event.

The latest iteration in the yearly hockey franchise was detailed earlier today and makes the move to EA’s Frostbite engine alongside EA Sports franchises FIFA and Madden NFL.

NHL 22 will also change things up using a new X-Factor system inspired by Madden NFL 22.

The technical test wasn’t specifically dated — all we know is that it’ll take place “later this month” — but we’ll of course keep you informed as we learn more.

NHL 22 heads to Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5 on 15 October 2021. Its special X-Factor Edition will provide three days of early access from 12 October 2021.
