An NBA Live 18 demo is now accessible on Xbox One and Playstation 4. The full game releases on September 15.
The demo features The Rise, prologue of the game’s story mode called The One. This new career mode centers on player choice and characterization. Live events, rewards and characters are included that can be carried into the full game. The demo also allows players to play a game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. WNBA teams and players will be available.
The cover athlete will be Houston Rockets’ superstar James Harden.
“When I heard about working with EA Sports and being the cover athlete of NBA LIVE 18, I was pretty excited for the opportunity,” Harden said. “It is all about creating your own identity and making your mark on the league, and I can definitely relate to that. If anybody knows about creativity it’s me.”
The NBA LIVE 18 demo is available to all players with Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus, and pre-ordering will give players 33 percent off the full price ($59.99) at participating retailers.
