NBA Live 19 brings squads and women to store shelves

The long-running franchise is back with a new installment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Electronic Arts is back with its latest NBA Live game, NBA Live 19, which evolves its "The One" mechanic and introduces to video game basketball the option to create and customize female players. You can find the game in stores right now, for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Developed by EA Tiburon, NBA Live 19 has players build a squad consisting of both NBA and WNBA players, including legends from past seasons. And ballers can face off against each other in Court Battles, with "custom courts with custom rules and unique rewards."

A mode called "The Streets" will let players shoot hoops in the sort of environment that should be familiar to anyone who has thrown a ball at a hoop outside a fancy gym, and "The League" lets players pursue a career for their digital likeness.

"NBA Live 19 brings a truly unique basketball experience to all players at any skill level," said Sean Graddy, Executive Producer, NBA Live 19. "The team added a variety of new features which aims to deliver a whole new level of depth and customization beyond any previous NBA Live game to date. We cannot wait for players to dive in and try out all the new content for themselves."

The name of the game, as has become standard for basketball video games these days, is "customization." Players can build characters from the ground up, in male or female flavors, and can take things a step further by designing their own courts.

NBA Live 19 was designed for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and and has an MSRP of $59.99. You can find it in stores right now, even though it's like... not even 2019.
