EA Sports’ NBA Live returns for the upcoming 2015/16 NBA season with Oklahoma City star Russell Westbrook on the cover. Highlighted by vast improvements to the gameplay, NBA Live 16 makes running the fast break infinitely easier thanks to a ton of new pass and catch animations while improved responsiveness means whipping the ball around the perimeter is done with ease — EA even added dribble handoffs. Attacking the basket is also even smoother with the inclusion of new controls for hesitation dribbles and crossovers while shooting has been overhauled with a one-to-one button press — release timing is no longer tied to the animation itself. Finally, LIVEmotion makes your CPU teammates move with purpose and intensity off the ball, fighting through screens, making intelligent cuts and more in an attempt to get open.
Like FIFA 16, NBA Live 16 is due out this September.
