Electronic Arts released the first official screenshot for their upcoming basketball title “NBA Live 14” today, via a press release obtained by Examiner.
The screen features Trail Blazers’ point guard Damian Lillard and “NBA Live 14” cover athlete Kyrie Irving of the Cavaliers.
With a new dribbling and “Bounce-Tek” physics system coupled with the IGNITE gameplay engine, “NBA Live 14,” according to EA Sports, promises more control over ball-handling than any other basketball game currently available.
Regardless, EA Sports told Examiner this month they know they still have plenty of work ahead of them.
"We still have a lot to prove. 2K has made a great game. There is no argument there," NBA Live series Executive Producer Sean O’Brien said in an exclusive interview with Examiner. "But, we wouldn’t be developing 'NBA Live 14' if we didn’t think we had something new to offer basketball fans. That said, our focus right now is to make a great basketball video game. We aren’t going to sacrifice our vision just to check feature boxes on the back of a package."
“NBA Live 14” is scheduled for a November 19 release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
