The players, all former first round picks who EA said will be "poised to be a major force on the court for years to come," lent their likenesses and expertise to the game and played a vital role in developing the game’s 50 different dribbling techniques and signature moves. The players also consulted with EA during the development process in an effort that EA said would make the game better than it could have been otherwise.
“The time, access and feedback these athletes have provided has been invaluable,” "NBA Live 14" Executive Producer Sean O’Brien said in the press release. “We’ve been able to capture signature moves and unique styles through mocap sessions, and their willingness to provide open and honest feedback has helped us do so much more with the game in year one than we ever could have achieved without them.”
"NBA Live 14" will shoot its way on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 19, 2013 in North America. International dates have yet to be announced.
