With the NBA Live 18 demo coming out next week, EA Sports has released the companion app for Android and iOS devices. The app can be used to scan your face into the game, for use with your player who will be The One. A breakdown of the app is as follows:
Become THE ONE anywhere, anytime with the NBA LIVE Companion app. NBA LIVE 18 is centered on your legendary basketball career, defined by the shots you take and the choices you make. With the companion app, you can take your in-game identity to the next level with GameFace HD, an easy-to-use mobile scan that puts your face into THE ONE’s all-new, dynamic experience. Create your player and have the freedom to play how you want and with whom you want, where the respect you earn in THE STREETS matters just as much as the rings you earn in THE LEAGUE. Follow no one, be THE ONE.
If you still have the companion app for NBA Live 16 installed on your Android device, it is recommended that you uninstall it first to avoid any issues. Note that the app does not allow you to select a hairstyle this year, but there will indeed be a wide variety of hairstyles available in the in-game editor.
In Episode #216 of the NLSC Podcast, recorded last night and coming out soon, Arcane and I did speculate on when the companion app would be released. Clearly, those predictions are now outdated! If you’re trying out a face scan with the app, be sure to share the results with us here in the NBA Live 18 section of the NLSC Forum.
