EA Sports’ return to NBA games is marked by the announcement of Kyrie Irving as NBA Live 14’s cover athlete! The first overall draft pick in 2011 will lead the charge into next-gen basketball gaming when NBA Live 14 launches on the Xbox One and PS4.
“I’m so proud to be the face of this franchise as it makes its much-anticipated return,” Irving said. “I’ve been on the court with the development team and I’ve seen first-hand some of the amazing things EA SPORTS is doing with NBA Live 14. The fans are going to love it.”
“We couldn’t imagine a better cover athlete for our game than the dynamic, explosive Kyrie Irving,” added Daryl Holt, VP and GM of Basketball for EA Sports. “Kyrie is one of the best ball handlers in the league, and with our next-generation technology we can arm players with the ability to replicate his impressive on-court feats, as well as the amazing signature styles and abilities of other pros in NBA Live 14.”
NBA Live 14 will feature a revolutionary new ball physics system called bounceTek, which provides players with a level of precision and control yet to be seen in a basketball game. In addition, the EA Sports Ignite engine will deliver True Player Motion, Human Intelligence, and Living Worlds to the game.
