NHL16 Early Access Now Available on Xbox One

NHL16 is now available to Xbox One Owners via EA Access.

The story is too old to be commented.

Early Access implies you're paying for an unfinished game. EA Access is a free six hour rental. Two totally different things.

ohhh very cool. TBH I got way less play out of NHL15 then I expected, so probably wont be grabbing 16. But will give it a try anyways, maybe I'll change my mind after 10 hrs.

NHL15 was a slap in the face with how many features were taken away. This one sounds like they've added them back in for the most part, so it should be better hopefully...

The gameplay was good and undoubtedly more realistic.

I understand they completely revamped everything for the new console generation, but it was bare-bones. There were some extremely basic functions and features that were missing and were never added in, and some other decisions that made modes practically unplayable (Be a Pro without skipping to next shift, I'm looking at you). EA made it sound as if a lot of the features would be added in the months after its release, but it was not nearly enough. I was back to NHL14 within a month or two.
