  • What I meant to say is do you need EA play in order to play the game 3 days early?

    Hello! You will get early access with the Champions and Ultimate editions. You also have early access with an EA Play subscription.
  • Great so either way you get the Early Access from one of those two options
  • Also is the exact date and time that the Early Access will be available posted somewhere?

    The 8th if you have EA access (it's a 10 hour trial)

    The 13th if you get an upgraded version of the game.

    October 13th is when the game releases for everyone. Those with the upgraded versions get 3 days early access.

    Wrong, October 16th would have been the date if players do not order one of the premium editions of NHL 21.

    Thought I read that too but today I saw the officially date is set to 13th, maybe they moved it closer. Either way, I dont complain. More hockey for me! 😁✌️

    Strange. Does that mean we get it on the 10th then or did I but one of the special editions for nothing? I would've gotten the standard edition if i knew that
  • Yes you will sitt in your armchair and enjoy NHL hockey at the time of the 10th oct! 😃👌

    Apologies for the confusion. The EA Play trial starts the 8th. The special editions will launch on the 13th and the standard edition will launch on the 16th.
