If you're curious how NBA Live 19 might stack up to NBA 2K19 you may want to check out EA Sports prelaunch event on Twitch at 7 p.m. PT on Friday August 24. EA will reveal a new game mode during the event. And even if you aren't that optimistic about NBA Live 19 the vent sounds like a fun time. Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker will be on hand for star-studded 3v3 games and a dunk contest judged by celebrities.

The One will also offer the chance to run ball in solo competitive and cooperative multiplayer in The Streets portion of the mode. Creating a male player will let users preview The League where they play up to the point they’re drafted into the NBA. Progress in the NBA Live 19 demo is transferrable to the full game (on the same platforms). Users will get one player to customize and take as high as level 20 though that character may be reset for those who want to see how both women and men play in The One.

The World Tour is a game mode that allows you to play on 14 different local courts from around the world from Quai 54 in Paris all the way to Venice Beach. To begin with you'll have access to three different courts Quai 54 Cherashore Park in Philadelphia and the Hoop Dome in Ontario. To unlock more courts you need to complete nine games of your own choosing. After this you’ll have access to five more courts including the famous Rio Favela (listed as Parque do Rio on your screen) in Brazil.

The render for Durant and Green is much better than the one we saw of both players a month or so ago. Likewise it's a significant improvement over both player's in-game render from last year's game. One of the first things that I noticed is how stacked the Warriors will be in this game. They have a top-5-rated player at every position. That's pretty amazing. I'm pretty sure it'll be that way in NBA 2K19 as well. Speaking of Live's rival the ratings for the players that have been revealed are pretty comparable.

This almost ensures Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy have been replaced and it's possible NBA Live's commentary is going to go the way of Madden's. EA opted to go with Brandon Gaudin and Charles Davis two years ago. Gaudin and Davis were known but not on the same scale of Phil Simms and Jim Nantz. It appears EA was able to sign Gaudin and Davis to an agreement that has each man coming back into the studio to record updated commentary throughout the season.

After being taken at pick 6 in the 2017 draft Isaac showed glimpses of what made him such a high pick but overall managed just 27 games and 19.8 minutes per night in his first season. In those games he averaged just 5.4 points and 3.7 rebounds but it was his defense which impressed as highlighted by his 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

NBA Live 19 will bring numerous new features and enhancements to the hardwood building on last years strong foundation. Players will be invited to take their game around the world facing opponents on new courts in Paris Brazil and the Philippines with each court and tournament offering unique rules and challenges specific to those courts. NBA Live 19 also marks the introduction of Real Player Motion (RPM) Tech into the franchise introducing thousands of new animations and smoother gameplay than ever before.
