Electronic Arts launched NBA Live 18 today. The new game introduces The One, which is an all-new career experience centered around the player. The ball doesn't exist.
The game offers character progression, gear customization, and a branching narrative. The One gives fans the freedom to develop their own playstyle from 11 signature abilities and 70 different, upgradable traits.
"NBA Live 18 delivers a basketball experience with a level of player choice unlike anything that has come before" said Sean O’Brien, Executive Producer on NBA Live 18. "We are giving fans a unique opportunity to build their own basketball legacy, playing on iconic courts and in Pro-Am leagues outside the traditional NBA."
There are two game modes: The League and The Streets. Former offers fans the ability to progress from rookie to veteran with their favourite NBA team while playing real NBA action including the NBA All-Star, NBA Playoffs and NBA Finals games. Players can earn MVP, All-NBA and Sixth Man of the Year awards, among others.
The Streets mode lets the fans push their career further on legendary Pro-Am courts where competitive challenges and match-ups await, including the Live Events:
- new, regularly updated real time challenges: battle opponents in competitive or co-operative games for unique rewards
- you can build a career in the streets through tournaments and throwback challenges.
In addition to playing these two modes, players will be able to play in the WNBA. The WNBA’s full roster of teams and players will be available in WNBA Play Now, with the teams and player skills balanced to reflect the playstyle of the league and its players.
