NHL 24 is surely in the works as we draw to the end of the NHL 23 title.
Fans are eagerly awaiting news surrounding a 2023 release, but what will EA have in store for us this year?
Find out when NHL 24 will be released and how to gain Early Access below.
NHL 24 Release Date
There is no official NHL 24 release date yet, but we have a pretty good idea of when it will land.
Last year, NHL 23 was released worldwide on Friday, 14 October 2022, following the same schedule as previous years and dropping on the second Friday of the month.
That gives us a predicted release date of Friday, 13 October for NHL 24.
Of course, fans should be able to get Early Access through Pre-Orders and the EA Play Trial, which should get them on the title as soon as Tuesday, 10 October.
NHL 24 Early Access
As is standard for EA Sports titles, a 10-hour time-limited EA Play Trial should be rolled out for NHL 24.
This will be an exclusive offer for EA Play subscribers only (Xbox Game Pass Ultimate includes EA Play), and after the 10-hour time limit expires the trial will end.
The trial will be a full version of the game, but once the 10-hour clock has run out, players will have to purchase the full game in order to continue playing.
Early Access will also likely be offered as a bonus to those who Pre-Order the X-Factor Edition of the title.
