NHL 13 Skates to Franchise High First Week

Electronic Arts announced today a record-setting launch for NHL 13. EA estimates that worldwide sell through for NHL 13 in its first week is up 9 percent globally over last year’s previous franchise high.

How fans are playing NHL 13:

  • Since the launch of NHL 13, fans have created just under 50,000 of their own alternate versions of the NHL through the new GM Connected feature.
  • During the first week, the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins were the most popular teams used across all game modes.
  • Fans have played over 3.7 million online games, or the equivalent of over 350 games a minute.
  • Fans have scored just under 5 million goals in the first week, dwarfing the 244 goals scored during the first week of the real 2011-2012 NHL regular season.
