NHL 94 Rewind is a retro-style throwback to the 1994 NHL title. It includes today’s teams and rosters, but with the controls and visuals from NHL 94. Instead of the realistic style of modern NHL games, this throwback features 16-bit graphics with 2D sprites and more simplified gameplay mechanics.
Though NHL 21 launches on October 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, NHL 94 Rewind won’t become available to play until October 30. It’s unclear if EA plans to sell NHL 94 Rewind separately. Check out some screenshots from the game below.
On top of NHL 94 Rewind as a preorder bonus, there are other goodies players get for buying NHL 21 before launch.

EA recently showed off NHL 21 gameplay, specifically highlighting some of the new enhancements made to this year’s entry. New skill moves have been added and AI has been improved. Additionally, the game’s Be a Pro career mode is getting an update with an overhauled UI and a new conversation system to make the game feel more in line with the career modes from EA’s other sports titles.
