NHL 11 News Post


During the NHL 11 Developer chat today, it was announced that the NHL 11 demo will be released in North America on Tuesday August 17th and in EU on Wednesday August 18th. (On the 17th, 2AM PST for X360, and between 1-5PM PST for PS3)

Quick overview of what is included in the demo. You will get a first look at HUT. What is included in HUT will be a starter pack, with a mix of prospects and some rare cards. You will get to play through an offline tournament. Each portion of the tournament bracket you get to play will be the 3rd period of the game. You win? you move on, you lose? you start from the beginning of the tourney.

We will also be including Battle for The Cup in the demo as well. Very similar to last year. It will be Chicago vs Philly, 3rd period of Game 7.

Just the way first party works. Demo dates are subject to first party, so if it they don't launch on these days, it'll be due to issues to first party release.

In case anyone is wondering, your demo HUT team is only for the demo and will not carry over when you buy NHL11. We will be releasing a blog later this week / weekend, outlining all demo info.

UPDATE: Here are some ways you can earn some free HUT packs through the demo. 1) Play the demo. 2) Win the HUT tourney in the demo 3) Invite a friend to the NHL11 demo. To be clear, you will NOT earn 2 packs if you play the demo and win the HUT tourney. You will either get 1 free pack for playing the demo, or 1 free pack for winning the tourney. So when you play the demo, you have an opportunity to get 2 free packs for your actual HUT team in NHL 11.

Was just telling one of my boys earlier today that this demo should be coming out on Tues. Can't wait to see what this new, real time physics engine brings. This is where current gen gaming should be....

Well, since my Xbox crapped out and is being sent to Microsoft tomorrow (hopefully), I'll be relying on the communities impressions. What a buzzkill after all this waiting.

Oh, yea, I definitely know. I play the demos every year and wanted to buy the game the last two years but never did. THIS TIME, I won't forget the gravy! Lol.

This demo is the only thing that will keep me from playing NCAA.

Oh well, I'll appreciate it that much more when I get it back...hopefully with few days of the demo before it releases so I'm not that far behind when I whoop you guys in Ultimate Team. There is a lot I don't like about the mode, but there is a lot that might be fun about it as well.

I'll try it for what it is, I suppose.

They (Microsoft) are giving me a free month of Gold which is awesome. Xbox customer support was really great to work with!!!

Time to play the game, Triple H-style.
