NHL 20 On PS4/Xbox One Now Available With EA Access 10-Hour Trial

The puck drops early.


NHL 20 is slated for release on September 13 across Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but EA Access members can start playing right now. A 10-hour Play First trial for the hockey simulation game is out now on both platforms. As per usual, this is not a limited demo or anything of the sort: It's the full version of NHL 20, but you're limited to playing for 10 hours total. You'll have to pick up the game and wait for launch to play more than that.

EA typically releases its new games on EA Access about five days before release, so this is something of a change of form given that NHL 20's release was still a full seven days away at the time of the trial's debut. It's not immediately clear why EA chose to release NHL 20 on EA Access so early, but hockey fans aren't complaining.

The NHL 20 file size on Xbox One is about 30 GB; it's likely similar on PlayStation 4.

The game brings back the pond hockey mode from NHL 19, while it also has its own unique spin on battle royale. In addition, NHL 20 makes a major change for the commentary and broadcast package. EA has also released a list of the top 50 players, and Connor McDavid is No. 1.
