The EA SPORTS Hockey League Beta

Available to NHL 15 owners only, EA SPORTS NHL will be releasing a limited access EA SPORTS Hockey League Beta starting July 30 until August 6 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This will be your only chance to experience the new EASHL in NHL 16 before the game hits stores September 15. This fan-favorite online team mode has been reimagined and lets you choose specialized player classes to deliver a balanced competitive experience on the ice. Player skill and your ability to play as a team will now be the determining factor in who wins and loses. So, sharpen those skates and grab your buddies because the EA SPORTS Hockey League is back!


For players who own NHL 15 on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 – Jump into NHL 15 starting July 30 and you’ll see a new panel in the main menu hub to download the NHL 16 EASHL Beta. NHL 15 is required to access the beta initially, but is not required after you have successfully downloaded as the beta will be accessibly directly from your console hard drive.

For players who own NHL 15 on either Xbox 360 or PS3 - If you’ve upgraded to a new console, you have a chance to get access to the NHL 16 EASHL Beta. If selected, you will receive a beta access code via your EA Account email on July 30 which can then be redeemed on either an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 (access code platform determined based on your previous console preference). If you haven’t opted in to receive emails from EA SPORTS NHL, change your preferences here. Sign up before July 25, 11:59 AM PT for a chance to be eligible to receive a code. Limited quantities available.

*Must be 18+. Internet connection, EA Account, and Xbox One or PlayStation 4 Console required to participate.
