• NBA LIVE 18 Demo Arrives August 11 & More

    In a series of videos showcasing the seven real-life streetball courts in the game, EA SPORTS has announced the NBA LIVE 18 demo will be available on Friday, August 11. No further information on the demo were made available at this time.

    In a new area of the official product website, more on 'The Streets' aspect of 'The One' mode were disclosed. Users can participate in Live Events (appearing similar to the temporary challenges/events found in LIVE Mobile), LIVE Run (competitive multiplayer games), and Pro-Am Tour (solo story and throwback challenges).

    The seven real-life venues are Rucker Park, the Drew League, Venice Beach, The Crawsover, Dyckman Park, Barry Farms, and Chesashore Playground.


    With the demo coming in 10 days from now, it seems relatively safe to assume the NBA LIVE mobile & facescanning app will be available on or before that date as well.

    As of this writing, the game is still not appearing available for pre-order for both consoles on any major retailer website. If NBA LIVE 18 needs a big year to stay alive as some have assumed, it's going to need to begin a stronger marketing campaign targeting the masses and put itself into a position to be purchased.

      If you have an account with the location set for New Zealand, the NBA LIVE 18 demo is now available.

      I'm planning on playing and recording some videos tonight.

      I have both kids in separate baseball tournaments this weekend for 9-10 games. My play time will be limited initially. Next week most of it is over.

      I still remember back in 2013 when Tiburon gave you a whole bunch of download keys for the full version of Live 14. That was awesome!

      Demo Time with NBA Live. This is where I get my enjoyment of the series. Some of the previous demos provided much laughter.

      Why do I have to create a my player guy and do that crap before I can actually play an NBA game. I don't care about that stuff at all. Annoying.

      Seems to be getting pretty positive feedback, even on Neogaf. Someone captured this gif which was a pretty neat animation where the player gets flipped over the defender.

      Yeah I'm really digging the physics, especially with the ball. With tips and coming off the rim, it's unique.

      Update 1.03 is now available for the demo. On PS4, it is only 84.02 MB and the Update History says only that it contains "minor bug fixes."

      Not sure which I enjoyed more here: the vicious screen or the crowd reaction to it.
