Over the past two weeks, we have been thrilled to roll out one of the most asked-for features from our fans, and now we are pleased to announce another title available for digital pre-order and pre-download – NHL 15.
Built to harness the power of the Xbox One, NHL 15 brings hockey to life the sights, sounds and feel of real NHL action like never before. Every player is affected by real-world physics leading to multiplayer collisions and pileups through 12 Player NHL Collision Physics. NHL 15 welcomes Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick, Eddie Olczyk and analyst Ray Ferraro providing insight through revolutionary real life visuals all presented in an authentic NBC Sports Broadcast Package. This is the next generation of Hockey.
To celebrate the launch of the game, the following two NHL 15 game bundles are available for pre-order globally, starting today, through the Xbox Store on the console or online at store.xbox.com:
- Xbox One NHL 15 Pre-Order, available starting today for $59.99, includes the standard game, plus $15 of Hockey Ultimate Team content.
- Xbox One NHL 15 Ultimate Edition, available starting today for $69.99, includes the standard game, plus over $40 added value of exclusive content.
As an added bonus, you can get 10 percent off your purchase and an exclusive trial five days before the release date, if you sign up for EA Access before you pre-order NHL 15.
Here’s how it works. When a title becomes available for digital pre-order in the Xbox Store, select “Pre-purchase” to buy and download the game. You will be charged the full amount upon transaction and may use any supported payment method, including an existing Microsoft account balance or credit card. The game will download, along with any updates issued before the release date, so the game is up-to-date and ready to play. Then, when the game is officially released to the Xbox Store, timed with local launch availability, simply go to the game in My Games & Apps, go to your pre-pinned tile, or say “Xbox, go to NHL 15” to start playing. Titles will be available after midnight local time on the release date in your corresponding country, though some countries with multiple time zones will align to one release time. For example, in the United States, NHL 15 will be available for play at 12:01 a.m. PT on its release day.
Similar to other digital downloads, you will need a consistent Internet connection to download a pre-ordered game and your Xbox One will need to be turned on or in connected standby (Instant On) mode. Of course, you can check the download progress at any time in your download queue, My Games & Apps, or on the game details page. And if you have multiple games loading simultaneously, you can prioritize titles, pause, and resume downloads in your queue.
