NHL 22 is here and a number of players on Xbox and PC are interested in when they can get their hands on the game via Xbox Game Pass. With EA Play included in the Game Pass library, the game is expected to eventually join the service.

NHL 22 is a big upgrade for the franchise including visual upgrades throughout the experience for enhanced realism. Players’ eye movements have been enhanced with new animations that help track the action around the players. Superstar X-Factor abilities help separate the best of the best from the rest of the team and make individual players stand out on the ice.

With EA Sports’ latest NHL game almost here, let’s get into what you need to know about NHL 22 on Game Pass and answer the questions ‘Is NHL 22 available on Game Pass?’ and ‘when will NHL 22 be on Game Pass?’


NHL 22 should come to Game Pass in April 2022. NHL 21 was added to EA Play and Game Pass in April 2021, so it seems likely that we will see NHL 2022 release around the same time of year. This all depends on if EA Play is still a part of the Game Pass library.

That should answer all the questions and queries relating to NHL 2022 on Game Pass.

A number of EA Sports games are already available on the service, with the full Game Pass games list available here. We also know about some of the games coming to the service in September, which we cover in our September 2021 Game Pass games list.
