20 Comments

EA Sports rolled out the NHL 13 demo on Xbox Live and Playstation Network today.

(Unless you have a PS3 in Europe. Then you’ll need to wait until Wednesday.)

The demo includes four playable modes.

  • “Play Now” is the basic team vs. team mode. In the case of the demo, players can choose to control the Los Angeles Kings or New Jersey Devils.
  • “Hockey Ultimate Team” allows players to put together teams in a card-collecting style.
  • The new “Moments Live” mode recreates events from last season. In the case of the demo, you need to lead the Kings beyond the Phoenix Coyotes in overtime, although you don’t need to score with Dustin Penner.
  • There’s also a “free skate” mode.

Here’s EA’s promo video for the demo:

In case you’re wondering, the song is “Run with me” by Classified.

How do you feel about the demo?
