NBA Live 18 Patch 1.03 Out Now; More Content

James Harden wearing the Rockets' Statement Jersey in NBA Live 18

Patch 1.03 has come through for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of NBA Live 18. A new in-game update is also available, adding new content and Live Event challenges. All of the latest updates should download automatically as long as your PS4 or X1 is connected to the Internet. If you encounter any problems, try restarting your console.

The most significant additions in these updates are probably the new Nike Statement jerseys (formerly known as alternate or secondary uniforms) for all 30 NBA teams. At launch, NBA Live 18 only featured the Association and Icon jerseys, formerly designated as the home and away uniforms respectively. Notably, a few home/away uniform assignments are actually incorrect in NBA Live 18, as not every team has chosen to wear their white Association jerseys for home games this season.

A new Celebrations Crate has also been added to The One. As the name suggests, it includes a selection of ten celebration animations for your player. The Crate will cost 12,500 Reward Points, which are earned through playing The One, LIVE Run, and the Pro-Am Tour. New Live Events have been added, including “Fear the Beard” and “What If: Melo Traded”. Finally, new rosters have also been pushed through, however a lot of recent signings are still unaccounted for at this time. We’ll be looking to compile some roster feedback in the Forum, to send along to the development team.

As always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. I’ve also set up a discussion and information topic for the NBA Live 18 title updates here in our Forum, as well as an update history resource here in our Wiki. If you’d like to check out some screenshots of a few of the new Statement jerseys in NBA Live 18, see below.

Still now seeing Jersey options in the one. Will that get added/corrected? Player numbers should also be addressed.

I would love to see an update on sound so the user can hear the refer’s whilst during fouls. Also injuries would be a nice addition for an update as well. Lastly responsiveness needs to be addressed specially with loose balls.

I am not sure, but the game right now plays a bit better on “loose balls” which is a good sign. One more thing that l would like to see is backcourt violation/setting outta bounds which l have seen the CPU abuse on super star. Andrew have you notice the CPU is batting the all out of bounds and chasing it for the rebound as of today… EA is listening…. Lastly roster editing must be in the control of the user so they need to bring that back in and use FIFA 18 new quick substitution. On more thing can you explain the mini updates l see happening on the screen all the time… Are they animation and game tweak updates? BTW the game is a 7.5 rating in my opinion. Whats your rating for game play?

I completely agree with what your saying. I believe team styles and strategy needs to be addressed. I think Live needs to use there bottom layout a bit better. I have barely used lob passes and bounce passes. I think using the “lob pass button”(just make the passes pressure sensitive tap for lob and press down hard to make bounce passes) should be a strategy button that allows the user to see statistically information on the court about offensive and defensive match up liabilities/assets and suggest plays/run that can shut down players like Lebron or Curry. This would depend on user skill of course… Maybe this feature can only be used in Super Star difficulty to encourage players to up there game. We also need the gyms from NBA Live 10 back but of course 2K has it now.

However there is a trade off of running these dynamic plays such as you can fatigue faster and sometimes your team doesn’t have the personal to achieve these goals so they use double teams and other means and other strategies that could leave other ppl open or even cause injuries. This button will trigger more animations such as more pushing and jostling for the ball because your defensive/offensive are working more to get open and defend.It would also show hot areas for users Lastly the coach rating and style play a huge role in this use of the button because style makes “fights as they say in boxing”

Lastly l would like NBA LIVE to use a RPG element to all there game mode regardless of the fact such as one on one or online etc.. The hot and cold strikes great, but l would like them to even go further into this area. By creating an emotional meter which can be shown once you pushing in R3 to show player frustration/confidence meter from not getting the ball and missing shots due to bad user input or not following plays the using calls. For example Jimmy Butler plays that the user is failing to execute would cause trigger animations of frustration so on. Also introduce a hard fouls that can be done by holding down turbo and tapping circle like the good old “push from back in the day” this would cause the player to become discourage to drive to the basket or shot from certain areas like lower there percentage. This would cause like a speed chest effective if used correctly.

Can’t wait for Live to go to the frostbite and improve there graphics and work on there in motion shooting.

I won’t bug you anymore Andrew…. LOL
