It’s official ladies and gentlemen, Houston Rockets stars player James Harden has officially been announced as NBA Live 18’s cover athlete. A game to where we will see the WNBA makes its debut in the gaming industry and The One taking players through their own journey, Harden creates his own as well.
NBA Live 18 will be release September 15th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at $59.99. However reserving this title early enough will take 33% off the retail value. THAT’S RIDICULOUS. Then again, talking to EA Sports reps, it’s all about getting the game into the hands of the fans and making a strong comeback with the Live Franchise. EA is on the right track and they know it!
The NBA Live 18 demo is officially available August 11th. Players in the free demo will also be treated to specially-timed Live Events – limited-time activities with special rules, rewards and characters, only available in The One. Rewards earned in weekly Live Events will also carry over into the full game, giving players reason to regularly come back and check out the new events in order to earn new rewards. Yes, this means all demo playtime will transition to the retail version come September 15th.
“When I heard about working with EA SPORTS and being the cover athlete of NBA LIVE 18 I was pretty excited for the opportunity,” said Harden. “NBA LIVE 18 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.”
Take a look at the new trailer “Follow No One” and get ready as the NBA Live 18 demo releases tomorrow, August 11.
