NBA Live 14 Executive Producer Sean O'Brien took some time to answer fan feedback today on Twitter. Below are the list of questions and answers. It's all about gameplay this week with Ultimate Team information coming next week.
Will the controls feel like NBA Live 10?
The controls are reminiscent of LIVE 10 but much deeper.
Is anyone going to buy your game after how amazing 2k14 looked?
As expected, 2K14 looked good. I'm curious to see how it translates to 5v5 gameplay.
When will we see another trailer?
You'll see a steady flow of content pulled directly from #NBALIVE14 gameplay from now until launch.
how will player tendencies effect how I play the game
In the coming weeks we'll breakdown how we're using Synergy Sports to drive player and team differentiation.
what can we expect out of nba live?
An authentic 5v5 gameplay experience that sets the foundation for the future of our basketball video games.
When are we gonna get more gameplay
Each week heading into launch.
Do you really think #NBALIVE14 has a chance over #NBA2K14 ,If so why?
Of course. To name a few - Our fresh take on 5v5 gameplay & commitment to connected consumer throughout the entire NBA season.
can we get some ultimate team info?
You'll see an Ultimate Team blog early next week!
what is it about live that makes it better than the other basketball games
Authentic player responsiveness and Signature Styles... More to come.
will we see 5v5 gameplay from the players camera angle before release?
were the screenshots that you dropped a further along build than the gameplay that you guys showed?
Nope, they are all captured from the same build.
what is something NBA Live has now that it didn't have before ?? What makes it standout ?
Depth of Signature Styles, player movement, team differentiation, control and authentic responsiveness.
Can you give any specifics on how the new consoles made things possible you could not do in the past?
Memory and processing power to provide more individuality to the players in-game.
I was hoping on getting nba live 14 cuz I always played live, but ur trailer set me back
I would encourage you to not judge everything off of one trailer and form your opinion once you've played the game.
Who are the commentators for #NBALIVE14?
We'll be announcing our ESPN talent roster shortly.
Can we practice plays at all? Can you tell us more about the specific playbooks each team has?
Every team has their own authentic playbook. We'll be updating throughout the year as coaches change their schemes.
post play. How is it in Live 14? Post play has been lost in previous bball games
We think you'll be pleasantly surprised with post play in #NBALIVE14
in the future trailers, are we going to see more gameplay on the defensive side is the ball?
It's tough to showcase defense and four-man rotations in a highlight video but we'll do our best moving forward.
overall ...was the response to the trailer expected ?
We realize we have to prove ourselves & one trailer won't do that. I think the more you see, the more you'll like.
Passing and AI awareness have you guys been improving in that area
We give you more manual control with passing than we ever have.
I can't wait im glad EA is back & better than ever.
I think you guys will really enjoy using your favorite players' Signature Styles. Different moves, speeds, and reactions.
will there be different alley animations
PF and Centers that don't shoot 3s, will they be more around the rim instead of being at the 3pt line?
Yes, player tendencies driven by advanced analytics will dictate player behavior on the court.
the in-game fans in 2K suck thats something you guys always had better will you still keep that a high level like previous yrs?
Yup, we put a great amount of focus into what our crowds look like and their behavior in each unique arena setting.
We wanted to focus this week on gameplay as it seems that's what you guys want to talk about. We'll share UT next week.
