NHL 16 drops September 15th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and last Wednesday EA revealed the different rewards players can take advantage of for pre-ordering NHL 16. Those that plan on sticking with their Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3 consoles can look at picking up NHL Legacy Edition on the same date as NHL 16. Below you can find a breakdown of the different rewards you can get for pre-ordering NHL 16 and NHL Legacy Edition:
NHL 16 Standard Edition
Those that pre-order a physical copy of the Standard Edition NHL 16 for $59.99 USD will receive 15 Gold Packs in HUT over a period of 15 weeks (one pack per week).
In addition to the 15 packs in NHL 16, players that currently own a copy of NHL 15 and pre-order NHL 16 through the PlayStation Store or Xbox Marketplace will immediately receive 10 Gold Packs for use when they start up HUT in NHL 16.
GameStop/EB Games Exclusive
Those that head to a GameStop/EB Games to place their pre-order of the Standard Edition of NHL 16 for $59.99 USD will get 25 Gold Packs over 25 weeks (one pack per week).
NHL 16 Deluxe Edition
Available in both digital and physical versions, the Deluxe Edition of NHL 16 offers players the most content for pre-ordering. Those that pre-order this version for $69.99 USD get 40 Gold Packs distributed over 20 weeks (two packs per week).
NHL Legacy Edition
Players on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will unfortunately miss out on NHL 16, but can still get their NHL fix with NHL Legacy Edition. Those that pre-order NHL Legacy Edition will get 15 Gold Packs across 15 weeks (one per week), as well as EASHL content ("Playmaker Boost Pack" and 1 Skate Slot). If you pre-order from GameStop/EB Games you will receive an additional 10 Gold Packs. This means you will receive 25 Gold Packs across 25 weeks (one per week) for pre-ordering through GameStop/EB Games.
At this time there is no way to pre-order NHL Legacy Edition digitally through the Xbox Marketplace or PlayStation Store.
