    Confirmed by EA SPORTS, NBA LIVE 18 will include the WNBA, joining EA SPORTS FIFA as including female squads.


    GI's Matt Bertz notes that EA SPORTS treated the WNBA with the same level of detail as they do the men, getting face-scans and motion capturing female players, while also aiming for gameplay to match the style of the league. The teams & players will not be included in The One or Dynasty modes, but could not be ruled out for inclusion in Live Ultimate Team, per comments from Producer Mike Mahar. At launch they can only be accessed in Play Now or Online Versus match-ups. ...

    Today at EA Play, NBA LIVE 18 Executive Producer Sean O'Brien unveiled some of what the development team has been working on in the two-year hiatus since the release of NBA LIVE 16 - "The One," a single-player career mode where users can choose their own path between playing in The League or in The Streets as they work to establish their legacy.

    Ahead of EA PLAY - and presumably a forthcoming cover athlete announcement - additional screenshots, brief game clips, and an interview with Producer Mike Mahar have provided more information on NBA LIVE 18. Some of the most noteworthy items:

    - Like the previous YouTuber/influencer event in Los Angeles, attendees at the recent NYC soiree were able to share 'exclusive' screenshots and quickclips of the title. One such video from QJB showcases a shot and early celebration from Kevin Durant, dribble moves from Steph Curry, the Drew League venue, and images of shoes in the game, et al.

    - SLAM Online interviewed Producer Mike Mahar to discuss the game. According to Mahar, the two main areas of focus for NBA LIVE 18 were core gameplay and The One, a new feature coming to the title.

    - According to the NBA LIVE website, the game will only be available on PS4 & XB1. There was some speculation and rumors that the game would be available on PC. That appears to be false.

    Last night in Los Angeles, EA SPORTS hosted a private event featuring NBA LIVE 18. Held at the Siren Soundstage Studio, the invite-only soiree appeared focused on media and YouTube content creators and included NBA LIVE 18 signage, a swag box featuring sneakers, a barbershop, a face-scanning rig, and a basketball hoop for attendees to practice their shot.

    The theme of the event centered around "The One," seemingly either the central marketing/promotional theme for the title and/or the name of a new game mode. Some signage at the event appeared to say 'One Career,' perhaps indicating it is the name of a new single-player or career mode.

    Other prominently displayed signage appeared to include images of Anthony Davis (potential cover athlete? Displaying improved facescan/graphics?), outdoor venues, and a logo for 'The League' (perhaps another new mode or an aspect within career mode?).

    An off-screen shot of the game shows LeBron James and the Celtics' Avery Bradley. The first official release of game information is expected, but not confirmed, to come anytime between now and June 10th's EA PLAY event in Los Angeles.
