EA Sports Unveils Ability to Create Female Players in NBA Live 2019
EA Sports has revealed that, for the first time in a basketball video game, fans will be able to create female players in their soon to be released NBA Live 19.
EA says that the inclusion of female players is an important step toward leveling the playing field, providing gamers increased opportunities to express their unique individuality and create a reflection of themselves while competing in the game. This new feature follows last year’s introduction of the WNBA’’s full roster in the NBA Live franchise.
Players will be able to create female characters and take them around the world in THE ONE, building their squad, taking on global challenges and accessing the same skills, progression and gear as their male counterparts. Men and women can also play together on the same team in THE ONE.
Female gamers will also be able to scan their faces using the NBA LIVE Companion app (iOS and Android) and import them onto their customized player. Furthermore, NBA Line 19 will introduce new Icon Abilities modeled after some of the greatest female ballers of all time, including Candace Parker (Los Angeles Sparks) and others.
We here at XBA think that this announcement is pretty cool, nuff said.
