Share

A demo will go live in North America on August 11 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and include the ability to start the career mode and carry over progress to the full game if purchased along with an NBA Finals rematch of Cavaliers vs. Warriors.

In the NBA Live 18 demo, players can journey through The Rise, which is the prologue section of The One - the single player campaign introduced at E3, and culminates in the player being drafted into the NBA. In a franchise first, all progress and unlocked content coming out of the experience will carry over into the full game when it launches on September 15th. All progress made in the demo will transfer over to the full game.

They won't have to wait too long after that to see how the final game fares, as EA Sports has also confirmed that the game will be releasing on September 15 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a little earlier than when National Basketball Association 2K18 is set to arrive (September 19). In addition, players who pre-order NBA LIVE 18 will get 33% off the retail price ($59.99) at participating retailers.

The One also features a host of timed Live Events, which are special challenges that will stretch the limits of the player's abilities in every respect. Fans can preorder the game by going to the EA Sports website.

That mode lets players make choices as they develop a virtual career in the league and attempt to build a legacy to rival that of the recently announced cover athlete, James Harden.

NBA Live 18 was developed by the team at EA Tiburon, and will reach Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 15, 2017. "If anybody knows about creativity it's me".

The Houston Rockets congratulated Harden on Twitter following the announcement about the video game cover. "When I heard about working with EA Sports and being the cover athlete of NBA Live 18 I was pretty excited for the opportunity". Tell us what you think below.
