I don’t normally cover too many sports games here on the site, but this bit of news is pretty damn cool!! For the first time ever, fans of the WNBA will be able to play as their favorite Female Superstars thanks to EA and NBA LIVE 18.
All 12 teams will be represented and according to the game’s executive producer, Seth O’ Brien, this won’t be a one and done experiment.
We are extremely proud to partner with the WNBA and the Women’s National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA) on this groundbreaking occasion. The WNBA is home to some of the most incredible athletes on the planet, and we’ve been working hard to integrate them into our game in an authentic and meaningful way. This is only a taste of what we have in store, and look forward to working with the league on more great integrations in the franchise in the future.
With 2K announcing that NBA 2K17 sold over 8 million copies, NBA LIVE had to do something to differentiate themselves. Is this the kind of buzz that will get fans to give LIVE another chance? It’s too soon to tell.
NBA LIVE 18 takes the court this Fall.
