Hey, everybody! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of thousands of people who have already downloaded both the NBA LIVE companion app with GameFaceHD as well as the demo. It’s been pretty cool to see the demo numbers constantly climbing over the last week, and even cooler to see how many players have scanned their heads using the app, creating themselves in the demo. You’ve played millions of games already. I’ve been playing with and against a lot of you in LIVE Pro-Am and I’m having a blast.
We released a very robust demo to give you the opportunity to play NBA LIVE 16 for free. We feel this is the right thing to do for you, our players. It’s a great way for you to experience first-hand how far the game has come in 11 months and how much fun it is to play both offline and connected with your friends in LIVE Pro-Am.
As with anytime you release demo software before it’s final, there’s a chance some funky things might happen – 2D avatars and backwards jump shots, for examples.
Look for the full game on September 29 – and if you’re an EA Access member, you can play it before release for a limited time starting September 24.
So, keep playing the demo and keep giving us feedback on what you like and what you don’t. We’re listening. Think of how far the game has come in two years. That’s thanks to your feedback and the hard-working team here at EA Tiburon in Orlando. We’re committed to doing everything that we can to make the best basketball game in the world. And it’s a game that we’re building together.
And keep in mind that you can continue to play the demo for free, including LIVE Pro-Am, even past launch. You can use your 80-capped created player to compete with everyone, including those who have purchased the game. That’s our way of saying thank you for playing and helping us work towards making the best online multi-player basketball gaming experience.
Look forward to seeing you all on the LIVE Pro-Am court!
