In case you missed the stream earlier, the guys over there at Tiburon Studios showcased some game play of NBA Live 15. The game looks much improved, and looks like a lot of animations have been added to the game. I suggest, when you watch the video, to just look at the little things that go on in the game, because they weren’t playing the game (in my eyes) properly. Pay attention to the small detail stuff, and make your judgement there. I’ll have videos up on my Youtube channel tomorrow (Youtube.com/ThaLiveKing) once I get the EA Access version downloaded. Have a look, and enjoy. Also, this game will look beautiful in the retail version, these compressed videos won’t do the game any justice graphically (lol).

Also, follow me on twitter @ThaLiveKing, lets’ talk basketball and NBA Live
Most of the defensive improvements are in the A.I. most of the defensive settings are the same from last year, if you’re not sure what they are, check the link below and stay up to date on NBA Live 15.
EA ACCESS: October 23rd (Xbox One Only)
Official demo: October 28th (Playstation 4 and Xbox One)
Some people were wondering whether NBA Live’s future was in question after this year, apparently it’s not. Sean O’Brien states that EA Sports has no intention of giving up on the franchise, and that production on NBA Live 16 and 17 are are go. My friends over at the NBA Live Series Center released a podcast with O’Brien on Friday and restated that EA has their backs. Also Polygon released an article today (Oct 19th) stating the same thing.
Quoting the article: Here is the guarantee O’Brien will make, though: NBA Live 15 will be better than NBA Live 14 by about this much, he says, holding one hand about a foot above the other. And then NBA Live 16 will be here, he says, sitting up to reach higher. “So, you’re guaranteeing there will be an NBA Live 16,” I say.”Guaranteed.” O’Brien says. “We’ve already started development on 16. We’re staffing up. We’re actually increasing investment on what 16 — and 17 — look like.”
This should make NBA Live fans happy as the future was in question. Still NBA Live 15 has to show a huge improvement over NBA Live 14, and a lot of people are sceptical on this year’s release due to the lack of game play videos. If you didn’t know there’s the EA Access trial on October 23rd, and demo’s being released on the 28th. Users will be able to try the game before they pay full price for it. Check the links below and keep up to date with every thing NBA Live.

- JORDAN RISING STAR

Jump into the JORDAN Rising Star game to prove your skills and improve draft stock. After reaching the NBA, players must do whatever it takes to prove they belong on their way to legendary status.
ENHANCED CREATE-A-PLAYER EXPERIENCE
Choose from 13 position/play style combinations, with the option to mimic a JORDAN athlete’s play style for a skill boost

Players can also influence draft night decisions by selecting their desired team.
Rising Star Mode includes tutorial videos featuring JORDAN athletes, as well as a voiceover from former NBA All-Star Jalen Rose.

Players from all 13 play styles have their own evaluation and scoring system. NBA LIVE 15 includes more than 85 gradable on-court actions, up from just 22 in NBA LIVE 14.
You’ll be graded on not just points, rebounds, and assists, but for playing smart team ball within your squad’s system.
Climb the depth chart and earn more minutes based on these in-game grades.

Thanks to continued Synergy Sports integration, last year’s fan-favorite mode is bigger and better with new challenges, new features and new ways to play.
Jump into Hot Spot challenges to not only replicate real-world performance, but also nail the same shots in the same situations as players in the real NBA.
NBA Rewind returns to NBA LIVE 15, letting players relive each night’s games immediately after they happen. This year, players can jump into the game at any point to either replicate history or change it.
JUMP-IN EA REWIND GAMES
Choose any minute of any game and jump right into the action with accurate per-minute stats, lineups and player tendencies.
Goals, objective and XP dynamically adjust based on the game’s selected starting point, resulting in thousands of unique challenges by the end of the season
HOT SPOT CHALLENGES
Hot Spot Challenges are a new twist that require you to hit a shot from every place on the court that a player or team did in real life. When Carmelo Anthony has a huge quarter and goes off for 10 field goals, you’ll have to make the same shots he made from the same spots on the floor.
BIG MOMENT CHALLENGES
New Rewrite History Big Moments take a departure from reality by dropping players into a pivotal real-life scenario.
Remember when LeBron James went down with cramps in Game 1 of the NBA Finals? You’ll have the chance to play as the Heat and try to overcome the Spurs without your best player.
Another new challenge type to look for in Big Moments is “Scoring Streaks.” It isn’t only about scoring but also playing tough defense, as you look to score consecutive points with a player or a team.
These Big Moments capture those “on fire” performances when a player or team takes over the game and goes on an unanswered scoring spree.
All of this new content – combined with more than 70 challenge types from NBA LIVE 14 – provides thousands of unique experiences.
Be on the lookout everyday as new challenges will be posted for EVERY NBA game, making this the most connected and relevant mode in sports gaming.
- adidas LEARN LIVE
Get familiar with the controls and movement in NBA LIVE 15 with the brand new adidas Learn LIVE gym.
The NBA LIVE team listened to fan feedback from last year, and wanted to make sure players got a feel for the controls before hopping into a game.
As soon as you boot up NBA LIVE 15, cover athlete Damian Lillard walks players through various drills and exercises, teaching everything from a Jump Shot to a Euro Step.
The Drills are broken up into the following areas:
– The Basics
– Post Game
**We’ve also added standalone Shootaround and Scrimmage options within Practice mode – allowing you to pick your favorite NBA team and hit the court in 1-on-0, 1-on-1, or full 5-on-5 scenarios.
There’s no better feeling than building a team from the ground up dominating the league. In addition to the on-court action, you can also trade, set goals and manage your squad exactly how you want over a 30-year term.
Dynasty is more flexible than ever in NBA LIVE 15, with new simulation options that let fast-forward and jump in at critical moments during crunch time. The future of the team is under your control.
NEW PLAY-BY-PLAY SIMULATION
Jump in at any point during the simulation while observing live stats and shot charts. Real-time prompts will appear, allowing players to hop back into the game at the game’s critical moment.
IMPROVED SIMULATION STATS
Simulation stats have been improved from top to bottom, with both team and player stats matching the ranges seen in the real NBA. During simulations, ratings matter more than ever.
Field goal percentage and three-point percentage are both more tuned with real-life. Gone are the days of 40+ point blowouts all over the league.
Stats aren’t the only thing being tuned. Minutes are allocated more realistically, allowing you to effectively manage playing time like the defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs.
IMPROVED FREE AGENT LOGIC
Free agency is also more realistic. Older superstars will receive big contracts, while role players and low OVR players no longer ask for top dollar.
IMPROVED TRADE LOGIC
Stars are everything in the NBA, and they’re everything in NBA LIVE 15 Dynasty Mode. The game’s best players will longer bounce around the league, as teams will do everything they can to protect them.
Teams are also more intelligent about upgrading weak spots in their lineup, and are more focused on building a better starting lineup as opposed to stocking up on one position.
As in real life, players peak in their late 20s, but are capable of playing at high levels into their 30s. Different ratings improve and decline in separate yet realistic ways
IMPROVED NBA SCHEDULE GENERATION
Schedules are more realistic this year, as the team has addressed massive 8+ game road trips, as well as long home stands.
SIMULATION INJURY TYPES
Injury chances closer mimic the NBA, as serious injuries have been tuned down for the bumps, bruises, and soreness that classify the grind of an 82-game schedule.

No mention of Ultimate Team here, but I`m sure it`s in the game, and they will advertise it separately, because it`s one of more popular modes in EA SPORTS. What do you guys think of the game modes, looks good to me. Can`t wait for more informations as well as demo information, and game play videos!
