GREATNESS: You can raise the cup early with the Deluxe Edition

The Deluxe Edition will cost $79.99, or $71.99 for EA Play members.

For this price you'll get 5 HUT Diamond Choice Packs, a HUT Synergy Veteran Choice Pack, HUT Cover Athlete Choice Pack, 3 days of Early Access, an XP Boost and Bonus Trait/Specialization Points for Be A Pro, and 2 World of Chel Hockey Bags.

NHL 21 Great Eight Edition

NHL 21 will be picking up a unique new edition called the Great Eight Edition.

LEGENDARY: The Great Eight Edition gives you the most fuel to push yourself to legendary status

It costs $99.99, or $89.99 for EA Play members.

This Edition comes with some big pre-order bonuses, including the 3-days of Early Access shared with the Deluxe Edition.

The differences for this Edition include double the starting HUT Diamond Choice packs of the Deluxe Edition (which will also be released twice as fast), and some extra rewards like Chel Hockey Bags.

Which edition is the best?

If you are a dedicated HUT player, then the Great Eight Edition is definitely the one for you.

Not only do you get some seriously awesome extras, but you also get a head start on grinding out rewards.

However, if you are mostly an offline player then $40 is a lot to pay for early access. Those that focus on single player modes are best served by the Standard Edition.
