EA Sports has just announced their plans to launch their NHL 16 EASHL beta, starting July 30 until August 6, for Xbox One (including EA Access version) and PlayStation 4 users. If you purchased the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version and have upgraded to current-gen console, you have a chance to access the beta as well. Look here for the details. The beta will weigh in at roughly 5GB.
Below are some notes from the NHL 16 EASHL beta FAQ.
Will I be able to customize my player or goalie in the beta?
Yes. You will be able to create a custom player in the EASHL beta. You will be able to edit a player or goalie’s general information, appearance, and equipment. Any creation or customization in the beta does not carry over to the full game. For more information on EASHL customization click here.
Will my player and team stats carry over to the main game?
Player and team stats will not carry over to the main game when NHL 16 launches in September. However, individual & team skills you learn through this beta will!
Will I have to re-create my team when NHL 16 launches on September 15?
Teams created in the beta will not carry over to NHL 16.
Does a team need to have a full lineup to play a game?
No, you can play an EASHL game without a full lineup and as little as 2 human controlled players. In those circumstances, AI will take control of non-human controlled players.
