EA officially announced NBA Live 18 during their E3 press conference, and revealed an innovative new single player progression mode called The One.
The One is separated into two components– proper NBA league games, and street pickup games. Players will create their own players, and earn fresh gear by climbing the rankings, building “respect” as they progress. EA made it clear in their announcement trailer that the ways to earn that “respect” will differ depending on where the player is competing.
Players will be able to customize play styles, signature abilities, and traits, as well as play with other via local or online multiplayer.
Therre is no word on whether or not The One will feature any story element. A demo for NBA Live 18 will be available in August, with progress carrying over to the final game.
