An exciting announcement a few days ago, though graciously hinted to us by Prime of NLVC prior, NBA Live 18 is finally stepping up with their demo Friday, August 11 2017. We’ve played and spoke of the good and bad in our NBA Live 16 impressions, so fingers are crossed that the demo are good signs of a permanent comeback.
Madden NFL 18, another title from EA Sports that is weeks from release has yet to show off any gameplay footage, rumored to be released by gaming content creators shortly. This appears to be the same route that the NBA Live team is taking. However following the gaming community, and it’s possibly just timing, this looks like a lack of content or fear of feedback.
IRB Gamer is excited and will be streaming the NBA Live 18 Demo as we put together our demo impressions begging at 6PM PT on Twitch. With no release date announced as of yet we’re hoping two things: EA Sports doesn’t reconsider their NBA Live 13 digital only release, or a late 2017/early 2018 placeholder. While hearing September we hope the demo will reveal the final release date. For now we have reason to believe that date will be September 12, 2017
We’ll keep you posted.
