NHL 22 was set to release their first official overhead gameplay video today, but now it has been delayed at the last minute by a day.

EA Sports originally released what was known as the gameplay reveal trailer a month ago on their YouTube channel to see how the game looks mechanically.

This new video was set to debut the first look at the overhead gameplay that you’ll actually be experiencing in-game though, specifically a whole 27 minutes of it.

What Is This NHL 22 Overhead Gameplay Reveal Going To Include?

As mentioned above, the previous gameplay reveal for NHL 22 a month ago showed what to expect from the game visually and mechanically, but not exactly directly from the game.

While it was far more than just a CG trailer or anything, it didn’t actually show straight up gameplay as in what you’d see in the game itself.

This new video that was supposed to release earlier today was going to show off 27 straight minutes of gameplay from NHL 22 from the basic overhead perspective.

When playing NHL 22, this is the perspective that you would be seeing, so that is what people want to really see in action for the first release on the new generation of consoles. This is even more important than say FIFA 22 or Madden 22, since both of them already had next-gen releases last year as well.

When Is The Reveal Happening Now?

Originally scheduled to be released on September 28, EA Sports for some reason ended up delaying the overhead gameplay video reveal for NHL 22 by a day.

In fact, they have the debut of the video ready on YouTube with a premiere countdown until the time, which is set at 11 hours as of the time of this writing.

The NHL 22 Overhead Gameplay For 27 Minutes video is set to go live on September 29 at 11:00 am ET, so there isn’t too much longer to wait.

While we do not know why the video release was delayed by a day, at least fans won’t have to wait too much longer to check it out.

NHL 22 is set to release in just a few weeks on October 15 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
