EA Sports is finally back in the basketball game market as NBA Live 14 officially releases today. Yes, the former holder of the top NBA game in the market makes its long awaited return to the court after four years of delays, cancellations and broken promises.
But that’s all in the past now as NBA Live is back, and, hopefully, better than ever.
Featuring its new dribbling engine “BounceTek”, “CourtQ” AI performance, ESPN integration and Ultimate Team, NBA Live 14 hopes to make basketball fans and gamers alike second guess the purchase of NBA 2k14 this year. And while it’s unlikely that Live puts a dent into NBA 2k’s hold on the NBA gaming market, putting up respectable sales numbers while garnering mostly positive reviews is sure to get people’s attention going forward.
If you’re still skeptical — and rightfully so — about getting NBA Live 14, the demo is out now for the PlayStation 4. The Xbox One version of the demo is expected to be available on Friday, the console’s launch day.
NBA Live 14 runs for $59.99, and is available now for the PS4. The Xbox One version of the game will be released worldwide on November 22. The game releases worldwide on PS4 on November 29.
