NBA Live 19 Demo Available August 24th; Full Details

The NBA Live 19 Demo arrives August 24th

We’re just a few days away from the release of the NBA Live 19 demo, which will be hitting the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace on August 24th. As per developer Cornell Gunter, the demo launches at midnight, so there’ll be no need to create an international account to skip the wait.

Although the NBA Live 19 demo will obviously be far more restricted compared to the full version of NBA Live 19, it will offer a substantial glimpse at the game. We’ll be able to play through The Rise, take part in LIVE Events, customise our court and The One player, run through drills and scrimmages, and play 1v1. Play Now will also be available, with NBA Play Now featuring the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors, and WNBA Play Now featuring the Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx.

Other modes of play, such as Franchise and Ultimate Team, will not be available. It remains to be seen whether the NBA Live 19 demo will receive updates and additional content as was the case last year, but we’ll be sure to keep everyone posted of any such developments. In the meantime, check out the full breakdown below, courtesy of the EA Support website.

This is where the real “hype” starts for me, it’s the hands on and raw gameplay videos that I judge things on.

I’ve always valued the thoughts of our community more than random YouTubers or bloggers, game sites etc.

You would think it’s a safe bet judging on last season’s Celtics but I can’t help like an outside will rep the east (doubt the Knicks) may be someone like you mentioned the Sixers or even the Raptors if Leonard gels.
