REPORT: NBA Live 18 Will Include WNBA Players And Teams (VIDEO)
On Thursday, EA Sports dropped a major announcement as they will incorporate all WNBA teams and players in their upcoming game, NBA Live 18.
NBA Live Executive Producer Sean O’Brien released a statement:
“We are extremely proud to partner with the WNBA and the Women’s National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA) on this groundbreaking occasion,” O’Brien said. “The WNBA is home to some of the most incredible athletes on the planet, and we’ve been working hard to integrate them into our game in an authentic and meaningful way. This is only a taste of what we have in store, and look forward to working with the league on more great integrations in the franchise in the future.”
For the first time ever, players will have full control to throw down dunks with the likes of Brittney Griner, or rain threes as Diana Taurasi. Much like with the men, the gameplay of the women will be “specifically balanced to reflect the unique play-style of the league and skills of its players.”
