NBA Live 18 @ EA Play 2017

Talk about NBA Live 18 here.

NBA Live 18 @ EA Play 2017

Postby Andrew on Fri Mar 24, 2017 10:45 am

Copying my bulletin from the front page:

As many of you may be aware, Electronic Arts has withdrawn from E3 in favour of hosting their own event, EA Play. Open to the public, EA Play provides gamers with an opportunity to get an early look at forthcoming releases, both in person at the event and through previews released online. The lineup for this year's event has been announced, and NBA Live 18 is listed as one of the games that will be on display and playable.

This obviously confirms a couple of details. First of all, EA Sports are indeed intending to proceed with the NBA Live series following the cancellation of the first quarter release (the rumoured demo titled The Drive to NBA Live). Second, the game will be called NBA Live 18, retaining the familiar title format. It also suggests confidence in the game on EA's part, given that it will be playable at the event.

There'll probably still be much to learn about NBA Live 18 coming out of EA Play 2017, which will be held from June 10th-12th, but hopefully the game impresses, and good news is in the pipeline. As I've mentioned before, we'll be doing our best to set up some developer interviews, and bring you details on the game as they emerge. If you're interested in attending EA Play yourself, tickets will be going on sale on April 20th, 2017.

I certainly hope so. Whispers about the gameplay have been promising, but the game modes need to bring it too. And of course, roster editing needs to be brought back. After all this time, it needs to be a complete package. It can't be absolutely everything we want it to be in the space of two years, but here's hoping for big, big strides across the board, for a well-rounded and enjoyable game.

I really wish I could somehow make it to this event. I would love to test the gameplay early on to see how it stacks up.

Who wants to buy my ticket? :lol:

I know its gonna be about $800 round trip direct flight from Toronto, I'm gonna do some research later on the actual cost, even if I'm there for a day. I've been to LA enough times, it'll be easy for me to be down there without headaches.

Probably. If they are near $200, I'd rather just support one person through a donation. Looking through the archive and google, they might be free, but limited to the public. Maybe Andrew can pull some strings if tickets disappear quickly. :wink:

Yeah I'm hoping they are ticketing it only to limit the number of people who show up. They don't want it completely open to the public. If it's free, I'm totally down to go (Y)
