NHL 18 is the latest entry in the long running EA Sports series and it's now free on EA Access. That means any players that have the pass on Xbox One consoles can now hop into the game and enjoy the full experience. This allows easy access to all aspects of the game from Ultimate Team to Be a Pro and even the competitive Multiplayer, everything is included. It joins a long list of vault titles as a free game for unlimited play and enjoyment. Simply select the free with EA Access option to download the game from the store page on console or on the Xbox site and play it regularly. This removes the cost for the game granting full access to the entire core package. The download size is currently 26.78 GB so that's fairly decent for an install size.
NHL 18 finally has all the modes the series lost in the generation prior with news ones joining the fold. Engage in intense Threes where you battle in fast paced hockey action or even with the mascots. Other modes are expanded and this simulation of the sport aims to step it up with smaller tweaks to fine tune the realism. It's packed with content and is Xbox One X enhanced bringing 4k resolution to make the game look ever more realistic, no HDR support however. Enjoy the intense simulation of the long running EA Sports franchise in this latest year of release.
