NHL 22 is ready to bring the long standing hockey game into a new era this year, so PS5 users should start getting excited for what is the series' first next gen release.
We've got our NHL 22 cover athlete and our reveal trailer! So far, the game looks incredible and we can't wait to share it with you.
NHL 22 is looking to bring key updates and features to the PS5, so let's get you up to speed on everything there is to know.
LATEST - Familiar face becomes a 2-time cover athlete
We had our own speculations as to who we thought would end up gracing the cover of NHL 22, but we didn't expect this fan-favorite.
This Toronto Maple Leaf Center was the cover athlete of NHL 20 and is back to shine on the cover again. Check out the NHL 22 covers below!
Auston Matthews is a favorite around the league and definitely a great choice to be on the cover, we just didn't expect him to return so soon.
We finally have a release date for NHL 22, the official release date is October 15, 2021, and it will launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5 that day.
The game typically came out in mid-September pre-pandemic. Perhaps, the reason for the later release this year was due to them taking more time getting the game ready for next gen systems.

Next gen versions of the title will have better graphics, cool new features, and improved game modes, so prepare for a steeper price on those consoles.
The current gen version should carries the usual $59.99 price tag for the Standard Edition The next gen Standard Edition costs $69.99.
