NHL 23 Xbox Series X|S is a next gen version of the game and will have a wide array of graphics upgrades over current gen platforms.

We saw this last year with some of the on-ice imagery and enhanced graphics. We're hoping to get an Xbox Series X|S deep dive in the coming weeks.

The gameplay trailer above details things like the X-Factor updates along with some of the last-minute puck movement details in NHL 23.

Once we receive a specific NHL 23 Xbox Series X|S version of the trailers we'll replace the one above.

DOWNLOAD: You should be able to begin downloading the game the night before.

The increase in size will likely be due to some of the upgrades that were implemented this year and some of the upgraded graphics.

Once the download size is officially released for the NHL 23 Xbox Series X|S version, we'll let you know.

Pre Order Rewards For Various Editions

The Standard Edition of the game doesn't offer very many rewards but it's still worth it to consider purchasing since it's so inexpensive.

You'll receive an X-Factor Women HUT Choice Pack, which is great for NHL 23 Xbox Series X|S HUT players but you won't get early access.
