NHL 94 Comes As An NHL 21 Preorder Bonus

NHL 94 Rewind features today's teams and rosters with controls and graphics from 1994.


Publisher EA Sports has announced a new preorder bonus for those who buy NHL 21 early on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One: a throwback to NHL 94 that will be available on October 30.

NHL 94 Rewind is a retro-style throwback to the 1994 NHL title. It includes today's teams and rosters, but with the controls and visuals from NHL 94. Instead of the realistic style of modern NHL games, this throwback features 16-bit graphics with 2D sprites and more simplified gameplay mechanics.
