NHL 21 will get a full proper reveal during August

EA Sports has announced that NHL 21 will launch in October of this year, which breaks the franchise’s September launch tradition. The upcoming hockey sim is slated to launch on PS4 and Xbox One, and if you already know you’re going to pick it up, NHL 21 pre-orders are available now for multiple editions.

“For NHL 21, we made the decision to focus on adding innovation and new features rather than the resource-heavy task of porting the game to new console technology,” the official statement reads. “You’ll still be able to play NHL 21 on the next-gen consoles through forward compatibility but we are fully focused on launching NHL 21 on the Xbox One and PS4 and look forward to the opportunities the next-gen systems will bring in the future.”

The lack of a native Xbox Series X version shouldn’t be that devastating to fans of the series. As the statement confirms, the Xbox One version will be playable, like most Xbox One video games, on the next gen console. The Xbox One version will also support 4K Ultra HD when played on an Xbox One X (and the Xbox Series X) so gamers will still be getting a premium experience. In addition, our site 5mmo.com has a large quantity of safe NHL 21 Coins For Sale.

While the game has already been announced, NHL 21 will get a full, proper reveal during August–we expect to learn new details about features and improvements made to the sim in the latest entry. In addition to getting an exact release date, we also expect to learn which hockey star will grace the cover. It’s worth noting that the Microsoft Store currently has NHL 21 listed to release on October 16.

NHL 21 is available in a Standard Edition, a Deluxe Edition, and an Ultimate Edition. Pre-ordering each version will unlock one, two, or five in-game Unlocked Hockey Bags respectively while the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions will also include a HUT Cover Athlete Choice Pack (Choice 1 of 6) and three days of early access.
