For the first time in history, the entire WNBA roster will be playable in a video game.
EA Sports announced Thursday that NBA Live 18 will feature all WNBA teams and players in a game mode called “WNBA Play Now.”
It would be the only mode that includes WNBA teams, and would also feature both WNBA All-Star teams.
It is a historic move in video games, and creates increased excitement for NBA Live 18.
The free demo releases August 11, and the game will be available in September.
“With EA’s expertise and ingenuity, the game will provide a terrific platform to showcase the players and the league, enabling fans to experience the WNBA in a new, exciting way.” – WNBA President Lisa Borders.
EA’s soccer game, FIFA 16, included women’s soccer teams in its 2015 video game.
