    After seven turbulent years for the NBA Live franchise the next edition hopes to return to stability and earn back some credibility. EA Sports is attempting to make NBA Live 18 a safer purchase by offering a demo which can be downloaded now for Xbox One or PlayStation 4, along with the upcoming 10 hour trial on EA Access and a pre-order price of just $40.

    The demo includes an NBA Finals rematch between the Warriors and Cavaliers but puts even more focus on the new career mode known as The One, as you come up from the streets and into becoming a star in the NBA. Besides going down the career path there is also Live Run Pick-Up which utilizes your created character in online games that involve up to 10 user-controlled players, practice drills and shootaround gym.

    Face scans can also be imported from the NBA Live companion app which is out on iOS and Android. Keep in mind that once your character hits Level 20 in the demo you will no longer be able to progress further in The One or play Live Run.

    NBA Live 18 will release on September 15 and includes for the first time in a video game the WNBA, The One career mode, and the First Take duo of Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman are there to scream hot takes regarding your player.

  • NBA Live 18 finally cements a release date with a discounted price

    It’s unprecedented for an annualized league licensed sports game to hold back until one month out from release before making official the date, cover athlete, and opening up the ability to pre-order. That’s the case with NBA Live 18 though which waited until today to do just that.

    NBA Live 18 will release on September 15 and at a discounted price of $40. The catch is that the price is only available to those who pre-order the game and it’ll move up to $60 after the 15th. The demo and EA Access trial period may provide enough confidence for some consumers to make that commitment. James Harden is featured on the cover.

    The demo for the game will be out in North America on PS4 and Xbox One tomorrow and includes the ability to start (and carry over to the full game) The One career mode along with a Finals rematch of Warriors vs Cavaliers.

    The WNBA makes its video game debut in NBA Live 18 which also includes the First Take duo of Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman for segments within the career mode.
