In NBA LIVE 19, you’re on a quest to be The ONE.

  • Create and customize your home court to take on competition across the globe.
  • Choose current players and basketball legends to join your squad as you defend your court and team rank against the best competition on the planet.

What does it mean to be The ONE?

This year we’re bringing new signature Subclasses and personalized playstyles that let you shape your player’s skills.

Each time you play counts toward your progress tracker called The ONE score, no matter if you’re playing the League or The Streets modes.

What else can I do in The ONE mode?

Take your game LIVE. Play challenges, boss battles, and other live events to hit the court and earn daily rewards.

Choices you make on your journey determine the skills you earn, the gear you wear, and your quest toward being The ONE.

How do I upgrade my players?

In the demo you’ll get one Customizable Player. This player can reach level 20 using Grind Currency (XP).

Your player is reset inside the Customize Player Hub, and when your player hits level 20, you won’t earn any more Progression or Grind currency.

  • Your players MAX level is 99 in the full game.

How can I earn more points for my Customizable Player?

  • Reward Points (RP)
  • Grind Currency (XP)
  • Trait Progression
  • Icon Progression

  1. I wonder if they will drop the NBA Live 19 Face Scan app this week to coincide with the demo. I think last year, they dropped the app a week before the demo. I hope they do it again. Really want to see if the Face Scan improved from what was a good result from last year
    So... we have to play the Rise or the One or whatever you wanna call it if we want to play an exhibition game between NBA teams?
    Okay...

    Yeah I was thinking the same, I'm not a fan of that either. It should be optional not forced if you don't want to make a one character.

    Unfortunately, it seems the same set up as last year. Aggravating if one is just wanting to play an NBA game in a game entitled NBA Live.

    Having to play two games of The One is a little annoying but it's a small price to pay to get a preview of the game. Demos have become so uncommon this gen that I'll take whatever we can get.
    Also, people that spent extended time with the demo last year should remember that Live had some good support with the demo. I believe the demo dropped with just 2 teams, maybe 4, but more were added in-between the demo and game release. Wouldn't be surprised if the demo gets an update around the time Prelude drops.

    What do you guys mean that you have to play the one mode in order to play the warriors/Celtics game ?

    You have to make a one character first and then play 2 games of the rise to unlock play now both the NBA and WNBA. I think it's dumb as hell, but it is what it is.

    Are you 100% certain about this?

    Any word yet if you can play a season as an WNBA team? Last year you could only play a game, kinda useless.

    It’s a demo, not a full game.

    But the finals were Warriors vs Cavs.

    But the rosters are for the upcoming season. They're not going to have last year's Cavs in the demo and no one's going to want to play a matchup of current warriors vs current Cavs. Celtics matchup a lot better. I'd expect them to add a couple other teams though. They did last year.
    Looking forward to it! Im kind of glad they are not including LIVE Run in the demo. Everyone plays the Live demo (having a great time) until the other game comes out. Then they complain about the other game forgetting you enjoyed the Live demo. Make them buy the game if they want to play Live Run.
    Also as a side note - I think Franchise mode will be bare bones at release but will recieve a major update mid year, like the WNBA portion of the game last year. May be too late by then but its just a guess

    So can we play online with our players or no???

    Was 1v1 in the game last year? I don't remember that.
    I assume that's online based with our created players. But I'm assuming.

    So for those people in other countries, dont the demo come out at 12am thursday?

    It’s specific to be released at midnight EST. So perhaps no New Zealand account tricks.
    Does anyone remember if the demo was available for preload before 12am last year? Would be nice to have it downloaded and ready to play by midnight but im probably being greedy

    Yup. Hopefully this year too. Created NZ just in case hehehe

    I didn’t even use the NZ account last year. Someone posted the link & I grabbed it with my main account. No problems whatsoever

    We will know in about 5 hours and 30 minutes...lets keep the fingers crossed :)
    So I'm guessing people with new Zealand accounts didn't get it? I wonder what changed this year,
    because didnt the demo come out last year in new Zealand at 12 am a day before the us did?

    It is 11:30 pm (23/08/2018) Right now in NZ. So we have to wait 30 more minutes...

    I mean, they did say 12 am EST. That's what changed.
    I'm sure EA didn't want to stagger the release this time especially since it's so easy to create an account for another country so it doesn't even matter.

    We need ios 11 for the companion app lol? If I update this 6 Plus again it's gonna be unusable.

    Requires iOS 11 unfortunately.
    As a major fan of the WNBA, I wonder how updated the WNBA roster is for this demo
    Cappie Pondexter started the season with the LA Sparks which is a team featured in this demo. Cappie got waived mid season and finished the year as a big part of the Indiana Fever
    While I would love to go off with her during the demo if they still have her on the Sparks, it would just not be right to have her on her old team when she grew to become such a big part of the Fever during the last half of the season
    Man, i'm excited for this. This years version looks very clean (except for the passing!!! fix that ish live!). Last year, the jump shot and pull up animations were horrible. It looks very cleaned up this year and i'm loving the 1 on 1 interaction between the ball handler and defender. I'm still getting 2k19 because of MLO and all that but if the demo impresses me, I can see myself picking this up at a later time.

    MLO AND PNO will keep me getting 2k sadly
    Word is New Zealand PS4 accounts have access to the demo right now.
    I don't have the time to do all that but maybe it helps those staying up late.
