NHL 17 Release Date: 7 Things Gamers Need to Know



Play NHL 17 Early

Play NHL 17 Early

One of the best things about EA Sports games is that you can play them early. This is in addition to the NHL 17 beta.

EA Access is available on Xbox One only, and it offers 10 hours of early play, five days before the NHL 17 release date. The Play First trial Trial of NHL 17 starts on September 8th, likely around 1 PM Eastern. 

You need to pay for access to EA Access, but even if you join up for one month in the fall you can try out a lot of the new sports games early.

There is no EA Access for PS4 and no PC NHL 17 release.

    Hopefully there will be NHL 17 on mobile in all version as the game mirror image to NHL 13 on XBOX 360/PS3 w/ updated roster and commentary. Gameplay can be similar to FIFA 14 mobile.

    I really hope that they add in the trade in request option in this year’s game mode “be a pro”..pretty sure that is what most players get the game for..they had the option on nhl 14…do not understand how a “next gen” game could have less details..anyway hope you they worked on that game mode!!!!!

    Solid video, still the skating engine in this game is awful and when you run a 1-2-2 blue line forecheck, the D men always get caught skating up the ice and your left with breakaways and 2 on 1’s all game long. Sometimes seems like players pivoting to turn is equivalent to a Mac truck making a u-turn on the highway, and lets not mention receiving the puck at the blue line as a D-man and trying to pivot and back skate to take a clapper when a lane opens up. Would really like to see the short-side glitch goal in the slot go away, and hopefully the skating in circles in the slot until a lane opens for a one-timer on the far side goes away. Ruins the integrity of the game for those who like to score in all facets and for those who understand how to play the game of hockey, as opposed to arcade style gaming for people who know nothing about the sport and score/attempt to score the same way all game long.

    Man if I had a nickel for every time I said to myself, “I wish I was in Saskatoon. “
