The Beard makes its way as NBA Live cover athlete

Apps and Software

EA Sports announced the cover star and the release date of the most awaited NBA Live ‘18. Available for PS4 and Xbox One, the basketball game will arrive on September 19. But for those who pre-ordered can start playing on September 15. And also, a demo game is available and set to be released on August 11 for both consoles.

The 2012 NBA Sixth Man of the year, Houston Rockets two-guard, James Harden has been revealed as the game’s cover athlete. This isn’t the first time the NBA All Star gets to be on an NBA game cover, as he, together with Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis, was the cover of the NBA 2K16 that sold 4 million copies in its first week.

The demo of the NBA Live ‘18 that will launch on August 11 will let you play a rematch of the NBA 2017 FInals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Included in the demo is a feature called “THE RISE”, a prologue in the game’s “THE ONE MODE”. Also during the demo, there will also be limited-time live events that have “special rules, rewards, and characters.”

Any game progress you make in the demo could be saved and loaded on the full version of the game.
