EA SPORTS has announced plans to release the NHL 13 demo on August 21 for PSN and XBL (August 22 on PSN in Europe). This year’s demo is headlined by True Performance Skating and EA SPORTS Hockey I.Q.
The demo will feature access to four different modes – Play Now, NHL Moments Live, Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) and Free Skate – and the ability to earn up to three HUT Item Packs to use in the full version of NHL 13.
In Play Now, select either the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings or the New Jersey Devils as you battle it out in the third period. The period will start with a randomized score each time you play.
The new NHL Moments Live mode offers you the chance to relive some of the most thrilling moments from today’s NHL. In the demo, relive the dramatic overtime showdown of Game Five of the Western Conference Final between the Kings and Phoenix Coyotes. The moment is introduced by real-world NHL footage in the menu video showcase.
Hockey Ultimate Team features a revamped design, improved reward system and a new playoff format. In Free Skate, players can practice the new gameplay mechanics.
NHL 13 will be in stores on September 11, 2012 in North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
