NBA Live 16 News Post


Lost in the NBA Live 16 LIVE Run and Summer Circuit announcements and interview with Sean O'Brien this morning, the team released some player customization details as well.

Quote:
Do you want to be a fast and agile guard or a strong power forward? Choose the position that best fits how you like to play. Next, you’ll choose a playstyle. This will determine what your key skills are off the bat. While your position is locked, your playstyle can be changed based on which skills you decide to invest in. Also, make sure pay attention to your height and weight – as they will determine your physical abilities and limitations. Don’t expect to see any 7-foot speedsters on the Pro-Am.

In NBA LIVE 16 you are rewarded with Skill Points (SP) which you can spend to improve your player’s ratings. There’s nothing more satisfying than working to improve your player’s abilities on the hardwood. You’ll receive SP at the end of games in Rising Star, LIVE Run and Summer Circuit. Talent has to be earned, and so do Skill Points. The better you play and perform, the more you earn.

NBA LIVE 16 also features an all-new Skills Progression system in which you unlock special ‘perks’ as you level up your ratings. These perks include exclusive gear, custom animation packages and more. Work to improve your player in six categories – Shooting, Finishing, Defense, Rebounding, Playmaking and Physical – each with its own specific skill set.

Still hoping that actual NBA players can be customized, but this is a good start.

In game objectives like "Score off an alley oop" seem a bit cheesy to me. Like you're gonna see guys constantly throwing alley oops trying to get the extra RP.

I have some history with Live and the other game and I must say with Live releasing some of this info it's looking like I'll be spending $120+ this September. I haven't bought both games since Live 10 but this is looking amazing honestly. The detail of the tats to the seamless transition of the face scan. If the gameplay is good when I play on sept 15th I'll be getting this game lol

Am guessing its because its a challenge specific to the user's selected playstyle i.e high flyer etc.

Now that player customization is on "another level"

Let's get Live on the SAME level with other sports games and confirm roster\player editing! lol

It's actually cool they're letting you try all this out, I'm definitely gonna give it a look because competition never hurts and EA seems confident this year.

How this is something that has yet to be confirmed is beyond me. C'mon EA, it either is or it isn't in the game ...

"No 7 foot speedster lmaoooooo shots taken "

This is crazy a lot of us have suggested play styles when creating your player especially for online teamup play . Good job EA

I'm going to be creating a pass-first point guard. What about you guys?

I'm definitely going with a defensive center
