NBA Live 19 Drops September 7, Touts Improved Animations

Last year, EA Sports finally put its troubled NBA Live franchise on a promising trajectory. Though its ancillary modes still had many shortcomings and the on-court play was a little stiff, the new centerpiece The One mode showed this game may finally be making a turnaround. 

EA Sports is doubling down on The One with NBA Live 19, putting players in the shoes of a promising high school prospect who hopes to write his own legacy on the court. This year, The One is a globe-trotting affair, taking players to new street courts in France, Brazil, and the Philippines.

On the court, EA Sports says the new Real Player Motion technology should result in smoother gameplay, integrating thousands of new animations into the action.

The free NBA Live 19 demo releases on August 24 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The First Trial starts on September 3 on Xbox One, and final release drops for both consoles on September 7.
