Excuse me, Clappy! I got my code, and I've started to download the technical test. But is it supposed to be titled "WATER BUFFALO"? Just asking, because I want to make sure I'm downloading what I'm supposed to, and not a virus or something like that. I'm pretty sure I'm not leaking anything inside the beta, since the screenshot below is my PS4 dashboard downloading "WATER BUFFALO", with the NHL 22 logo as the cover

Your account wasn't sent a code. If you registered, it's possible this was done on a different account so please check any other email accounts you may have used.

It should update to say NHL 22 after you've launched it once.
