EA Tiburon released a demo for NBA Live 19 on PS4 and Xbox One today that lets players experience The Rise, Create-Your-Court, Live Events and more before launch.

In two weeks, EA Tiburon’s NBA Live 19 will hit both PS4 and Xbox One. For those still unsure about whether or not they will pick the game up, EA has released a free NBA Live 19 demo on both platforms, just like they did last year.

After creating a character, players will partake in various streetball matches in places like the Philippines or Brazil before eventually facing off with cover athlete Joel Embiid on his own custom court with its own rules.

Players will also be able to mess around with the Create-Your-Court feature and try out Live Events, which are constantly updated challenges for players to partake in for rewards. To celebrate the demo’s launch and impending release, EA is also hosting a pre-launch event at twitch.tv/NBA where stars will they will unveil a new game mode, have athletes play 3v3 games, have a dunk contest.
