Next Gen Presentation & Trailers

Something that several players are talking about is the presentation that we've seen for the NHL 23 PS5 version.


In fact, the new presentation and interactive Stanley Cup is something that we should all be excited to see on next gen systems.

As you can see, the graphics received a significant upgrade for the NHL 23 PS5 and other next gen systems. We've also received a new game modes trailer.

With a ton of new additions to NHL 23, we're hoping that we'll receive an exclusive PlayStation trailer before the launch of the EA Play Trial.

Game Modes available on NHL 23

Franchise Mode will be a big draw this year and the recent trailer dove right in on what we can expect once the game releases.

It would seem that most of the game modes on the NHL 23 PS5 version will expand to Xbox Series X|S and the other current gen platforms.
