EA Tiburon is gearing up for the launch of NBA Live 14, and today they’ve announced that they will be releasing a demo on both next-gen platforms this month. It’ll be hitting hitting North America on the 19th, day and date with the release of the game. Here’s a bit about the game and the upcoming demo:
On Tuesday, November 19 North American fans will get their first taste of next-gen basketball when the NBA LIVE 14 demo launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.* The full-featured demo provides multiple game modes such as full games in Tip-Off, bite-sized BIG Moments challenges and a series of Fantasy Showdowns in LIVE Ultimate Team.
Those looking for a full-game experience can jump into Tip-Off and play as the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder, New York Knicks or Golden State Warriors. Utilizing the power of CourtQ and Synergy Sports, the rosters, ratings and tendencies of all teams and players in the demo will be updated throughout the season. Players will also be able to enjoy Offline head-to-head matchups and take on their buddies in local couch play.
Those looking for a quick challenge take on one of five BIG Moments, ranging from last-second buzzer-beaters to full-quarter challenges. The BIG Moments are comprised of some of the most scintillating performances of the young 2013 – 2014 NBA season, letting you take control of some of the most impressive players and teams this year.
