The WNBA Joins NBA Live ’18


Brittney Griner with the two-handed slam.


In a move that is surely a welcomed surprise, EA has added the entire WNBA roster to their upcoming iteration of professional basketball, NBA Live ’18 . I for one am excited to see this addition. For a few years now, FIFA, EA’s soccer franchise has included the women’s national teams, after responding to the growth in popularity of the women’s fixtures. Every WNBA team and player is accounted for, and in order to ensure that it plays  to its own style, players were scanned, and even some did motion capture for a few moves. This is surely important, in order to differentiate this addition, and too not only make it a female skin over the male counterparts. The NBA and WNBA play differently, and they hope to capture the uniqueness of that in the game.
