We learned Kyrie Irving will grace the cover of NBA 2K18 last week, and now we’re starting to get some details on 2K’s NBA gaming competitor, EA Sports’ NBA Live. The first looks at NBA Live 18 came out on Wednesday and revealed a few significant details that will be included in the game.
The biggest things of note from the gameplay trailer and screenshots on Wednesday were that we got confirmation of two non-NBA locations that will be available for play. Legendary Rucker Park in New York City is one of the locations revealed for NBA Live 18.
Along with the iconic New York park, NBA Live 18 will also feature Los Angeles’ Drew League, which is the legendary pro-am league that’s played each summer and features some current and former NBA stars making appearances – recently we saw highlights of Baron Davis cooking the opposition in The Drew.
There’s no word on what game modes The Drew League and Rucker Park will be available in, but we do know they are in the game. We also got a look at some of the sneakers that will be available in the game, which include some iconic Jordans, Nike Foamposites, and LeBron Soldiers.
You can check out the first gameplay trailer below, that shows some clips from the game as EA Sports looks to present its best effort at dethroning 2K.
