The latest NBA Live 15 developer blog has given us some insight into the modes in this year’s game. Various enhancements have been made to Rising Star, including deeper customisation options, more shoes, revamped grading and player development, and a greater influence on where you end up on Draft night. Dynasty Mode has also been improved with the reintroduction of Sim Intervention, better simulated stats and results, improved trade and free agency logic, and tweaked player development.
In terms of online modes, Head-to-Head Seasons and Best-of-Seven are back this year. Live Season is also back, featuring NBA Rewind games (which you can now jump into at any point), BIG Moments challenges (which now also include “rewrite history” scenarios and streak challenges), and the new Hot Spot Challenges, in which you must hit shots from the same spots on the floor that a team or player did in real life.
Finally, adidas LEARN LIVE is NBA Live 15’s tutorial mode, hosted by cover player Damian Lillard. Drills include the basics, dribbling, passing, scoring, and post game. NBA Live 15 also features a standalone shootaround mode and scrimmage options, which include both 1-on-1 and 5-on-5 options.
The only mode that isn’t discussed is Ultimate Team, but more information on that will be revealed very soon. What do you think of the improvements and additions to the game modes in NBA Live 15? Sound off in the comments below, and add your thoughts here in the Forum.
