E3 2017: NBA Live 18 Announced With First Trailer, Demo Coming In August

After some time away, the NBA Live series is set to make its return in 2017 with NBA Live 18. EA revealed the new basketball game today during its EA Play press conference. While the company is looking to nail the fundamentals of basketball, it’s also putting an emphasis on personalization and customization.

With NBA Live 18, EA says it hopes to bring something new to the genre–an absolute necessity, given the dominant position that the NBA 2K series currently occupies. A key feature is the somewhat RPG-esque mode called The One, where you play as your own custom character that you’re free to customize how you like. As you improve, you’re able to allot points to mold the character into the type of player you want, whether that’s a sharpshooter or a low-post bruiser.

In addition to standard games between NBA teams, Live 18 brings back a street ball mode. You’ll be able to team up with friends to participate in 5-on-5 street matches on real-life courts like those found at Venice Beach and Rucker Park.

A demo of the game will arrive at some point in August. It’ll allow you to check out The One mode in single-player and co-op, and any progress you make will carry over to the full game.

NBA Live 18 is due out this September. Also coming that month is FIFA 18, which we learned today will feature a continuation of Journey mode. We also got new details regarding the Switch version of FIFA 18. For a recap of everything else EA announced today, check out our EA press conference news roundup.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
