NBA Live 18 reveals launch date and cover star James Harden

Said Harden about the opportunity, "When I heard about working with EA Sports and being the cover athlete of NBA Live 18 I was pretty excited for the opportunity".

"Embrace debate" has taken over sports television programming, and now even sports video games aren't safe from it. ESPN's Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman will appear in "First Take" segments during the new career mode built for the upcoming "NBA Live 18" called "The One". Create your player and become a legend in The League and The Streets.

EA has announced that a "groundbreaking" free demo for NBA Live 18 will be coming tomorrow to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, enabling you to play then move your progress and unlocked content across to the full game when it launches this September.

Follow no one. Be the one. But we haven't heard a peep from NBA Live 18 in a little while, and we were left wondering just how EA Sports' hoopfest was shaping up. The demo will be available on August 11.

The demo also features a standard exhibition match for players who simply want to jump in and see what tweaks have been made to the series' gameplay. "If anybody knows about creativity it's me".

The free demo also includes "specially-timed" Live Events to complete, with special rules, rewards and characters available only in The One. Finally, pre-ordering the game will get you a 33% (or $20) discount on it as well.

One highlighted feature of the demo will be an eventual Play Now experience centered on the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors, rivals for the past two years in the National Basketball Association finals (each with a championship win during that period).

Harden started his career as the first player ever drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

EA Sports also revealed the cover star for the game, and it's none other than the outspoken Houston Rocket himself, James Harden.

NBA Live 18 launches on the PS4 and Xbox One on September 18.
