NBA LIVE 18 FREE DEMO Goes Live In A Few Hours!

NBA18-James-HardenToday, Electronic Arts Inc announced that the NBA LIVE 18 Free DEMO is going LIVE! The demo is scheduled to go live tomorrow, August 12 for all players subscribed to XBOX Live Gold and Playstation Plus. All progress and unlocked content would carry over to the full game when it launches on September 15, 2017, a first for the NBA Live franchise. In addition, a 33% off retail price would be given to gamers who would pre-order the game at participating retailers (No updates yet if this would be available in our country).

The NBA LIVE 18 free demo will let gamers experience The Rise, the prologue section of The One – an all-new way to pursue your legacy, centered on the player and defined by your choices. Live Events would also be available during the demo with limited-time activities along with special rules, rewards and characters, only available in The One. Rewards earned in weekly Live Events will also carry over into the full game, giving players reason to regularly come back and check out the new events in order to earn new rewards.

The NBA LIVE free demo rounds out with a Play Now experience between the NBA Finals rivals Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.

James Harden would be this year’s cover athlete for NBA LIVE 18. James Harden has always been a wholly unique individual, staying true to himself and reaching stardom through his skill and authenticity. Through intense dedication to the sport and his fiercely competitive nature, Harden embodies The One for Houston and its fans.

“When I heard about working with EA SPORTS and being the cover athlete of NBA LIVE 18, I was pretty excited for the opportunity,” said Harden. “NBA LIVE 18 is all about creating your own identity and making your mark on the league, and I can definitely relate to that. If anybody knows about creativity, it’s me.”

Harden started his career as the first player ever drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Since joining Houston in 2012, Harden has been a powerhouse in the league, finishing his first season with an average of 25.9 points and 5.8 assists per game, and growing into a perennial all-star and one of the league’s most-dominant players.

Players who need even more basketball in their lives can also check out NBA LIVE Mobile, available as free-to-download on the App Store and Google Play.

NBA LIVE 18 is developed by EA Tiburon and will be available worldwide September 15, 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
