The beauty of basketball video games is sometimes we can change history. Our team never loses, our players are never injured. The most magical feature is legends of the past can battle legends of the future. Imagine a game between Lebron James and Larry Bird or Magic Johnson and Jeremy Lin. Get ready because that dream is about to become a reality. According to gameplay designer Scott O’Gallagher and executive producer Sean O’Brien, NBA Live 14 will feature Hall-of-fame stars from NBA’s past.
Details have recently come out during a live Twitter Q&A with Scott O’Gallagher and Sean O’Brien that not only will legends return but forty different players will have signature moves, including dunk packages which can be assigned to players (particularly created ones).

O’Gallagher also praised the game’s new dribbling system, authenticity of its A.I. and promised “a surprise coming later,” apparently in relation to NBA Live‘s broadcast presentation. In addition, they’ve hired a “shoe guru” that will be paying close, weekly attention to who wears what, as many fans are passionate about basketball footwear.
While a release date has yet to be announced, NBA Live 14 will be available for PS4 and Xbox One.
