DAMIAN LILLARD TO GRACE COVER OF NBA LIVE 15

Portland Trailblazers All-Star Earns Cover Honors

August 25, 2014 – Today EA SPORTS announced that Damian Lillard will be featured as the cover athlete for NBA LIVE 15. Lillard shared the news with his fans via social media, and EA also released a special video celebrating Lillard’s appearance on the cover.

Lillard’s involvement in the franchise goes beyond a simple cover appearance, as he has been working with the NBA LIVE team for the past two years. Lillard participated in motion capture and voice over sessions in both Orlando and Vancouver, Canada where the team was able to capture his signature movement including dribbling and shooting. The team also scanned his head for likeness and recorded facial performance as well as had design sessions about the creative direction of the game. Damian is also the star and storyteller of the new Learn LIVE onboarding mode, where he teaches players the basics of NBA LIVE 15 and recounts his own life journey in basketball. Lillard is already making his presence known in the EA SPORTS family, appearing alongside Kevin Hart and Dave Franco in the recent Madden Season video.

Damian Lillard was selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, and went on to earn Rookie of the Year honors in 2013. Lillard’s impressive young career has continued to flourish, as he was named to the NBA West All-Star Team in 2014. He is also a two-time NBA Skills Challenge champion.

NBA LIVE 15 arrives with the most photo-realistic visuals in franchise history and 500+ core gameplay improvements delivering a truly fluid, fun and authentic basketball gaming experience. Reimagined visuals drop you courtside alongside the game’s biggest stars. See the intensity on a player’s face as he nails a game-winner, or the frustration of a heart-wrenching loss. All-new real-time physics on dunks and layups replicate some of the NBA’s most amazing physical plays, letting you posterize your opponent or deny his attempt at the rim. Add into the mix always-connected online game modes and LIVE’s Synergy Sports partnership and you’ll never miss a beat during the NBA season with new content updated daily, all season long.

NBA LIVE 15 is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available on October 7 for Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. To learn more about NBA LIVE 15, visit http://www.easports.com/nba-live.

@Rockie

How can you tell that this game looks nice. We dont see anything in movements! Only Arena screenshot and now the cover... EA, how you show to us some gameplay!??!
We dont care anything about Arenas screenshot or the cover. WE WANT GAMEPLAY!
2K show us the gameplay at Gamescom and you EA? Are you in late again?

The way it seems it's 2k from neck up and EA putting in work from neck down. Actually looks like Damien's body.

(Even a legit human form is a big step up for EA).

Couldn't have found a better guy to grace the cover. Congrats Dame.
 
# 11 thedream2k13 @ 08/25/14 11:02 AM
This screen has been on operation sports for 3 weeks
 
# 12 WTF @ 08/25/14 11:03 AM
No. There's a new screen. Shows him dribbling.
 
# 13 jayman504 @ 08/25/14 11:03 AM
Honestly I really do love the screen shots but at some point you gotta show your product running live(pardon the pun). They said they worked on a lot of aspects of the game and the fact they haven't shown a lick of this game except from pictures is somewhat troublesome. I hope they come hard in September ...
 
# 14 eaterofworlds888 @ 08/25/14 11:12 AM
Really like the cover and screenshots so far. Hoping for some gameplay soon.
 
# 15 Jakeness23 @ 08/25/14 11:14 AM
That shot of Lillard looks really good. Jersey fits well, sleeve looks good. Well done. I may be getting 2 basketball games this year!
 
# 16 tsbmolina @ 08/25/14 11:15 AM
I wish I liked the cover but it looks like he's taking a deuce.
 
# 17 @marcusjiles @ 08/25/14 11:21 AM
Wow. Body scans make a huge difference. Arms, shape and Im assuming legs looks like a 6'3 guard. And not just any 6'3 guard, but THE 6'3 guard that it's supposed to look like.

I imagine we're not seeing a trailer for a few more weeks, but if they keep posting screenshots of players in game, I'll be fine with that. This looks fantastic.
 
# 18 loosey101 @ 08/25/14 11:24 AM
The screen looks so nice, I mean compare that to 14 and the difference is amazing. Can't wait to hit some game winners with Dame in '15.
 
# 19 El_Poopador @ 08/25/14 11:29 AM
Made a quick comparison
