What You Should Know About NBA Live 18
NBA Live 18, the newest Electronic Arts basketball themed game is being released on September 15, 2017. The game is available for current generation consoles, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Perhaps the most notable piece of information about the game is that it comes after what many consider a one year break in the NBA Live franchise. Electronic Arts decided to make the 2016 edition a mobile only game. NBA Live Mobile is a popular game with lots of worldwide users but it doesn't provide a realistic basketball themed gameplay. The mobile version attracted new players and had more than decent earnings but franchise fans were still waiting for a true continuation.
Despite the rumors, NBA Live 18 is not coming to PC. There were some rumors about the 2017 edition and Madden NFL 18 also being made for PC in 2017 but it turned out to be just a rumor. Current generation consoles are the only two platforms on which the game can be played. The NBA player that was chosen to be on the cover of the game is none other than Houston Rockets' shooting guard James Harden. It's not the first time when The Beard is on the cover of a basketball themed game. In 2015, Harden was on the cover of rival game, NBA 2K16. There is no collector's or special NBA Live 18 edition.
There is just one game version that costs $60 or the equivalent depending on region and currency. The pre-order bonus includes some in game items, James Harden themed packs, and a 33% discount. The in game goodies are nice but the discount is a great surprise as not many publishers offer such a great deal on release day. NBA Live 18 content include a single player mode, an Ultimate Team mode, and multiplayer modes. There's also one game feature that is implemented for the first time in a basketball simulation game. NBA Live 18 will have players from the WNBA. A companion app can be downloaded for iOS and Android.
NBA Live 18 can be played on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, On the same day when the game release NBA Live 18 coins will be on sale too. Also the game features James Harden on the cover and in game players from the WNBA.
