EA revealed NBA Live 2019 during their E3 2018 press conference, with a heavy focus on the game’s career mode The One.
Check out the reveal trailer below:
The trailer showed off both the professional and street sides of the game. According to the EA Sports website, we know that there will be two different career progression modes: The Street and The League. In each of those modes you will be able to customize the playstyle of your player using what EA calls the “icon progression” system, which has you slowly learning new skills based off of some of the NBA’s greats, according to the website.
You will also be able to build your own squad in NBA Live 2019. You will use that squad to play games against other players online, something along the lines of FIFA‘s Ultimate Team mode. However, we still don’t know many specifics on this game’s online mode.
The trailer also showed a September 7, 2018 release date for NBA Live 2019. Pre-orders for the game begin on June 25.
