With less than two weeks until we finally see the return of NBA LIVE 14, the designers unveiled a few awesome new details today surrounding the upcoming game. There’s LIVE Season, which is where players can take on challenges directly from the NBA, whether it’s getting a certain number of assists in the fourth quarter with John Wall or scoring clutch points with Kyrie Irving. The mode updates every day, keeping it fresh and authentic.
Perhaps even more exciting for the hardcore gamer is the introduce of CourtQ. Powered by Synergy Sports Technology, all player ratings, tendencies and team stats will be updated on a daily basis to create an almost life-like experience.
Other details announced were the inclusion of LIVE Ultimate Team, where you can build a fantasy squad, Head-to-Head Seasons, where players will be placed in appropriate leagues based on skill level, the EA SPORTS Hoops Network to stay connected with gamers across the globe, and Full ESPN Broadcast Integration with commentators Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Jalen Rose.
The game’s official soundtrack has also been revealed. Handpicked by the legendary DJ, MICK, this will be a totally unique experience where the soundtrack will update throughout the season based on which new releases MICK decides to add.
