The Ultimate Team Comes to NBA LIVE 14

By Cindy Minguez, 5 years ago
NBA LIVE 14 marks the return of Electronic Arts' popular basketball franchise, and EA is introducing a new mode never before seen in the series -- LIVE Ultimate Team. This new feature allows you to earn coins, gain rank, and build the team of your dreams.




One may gain coins or rank up in several different ways: Tip Off against any team in the NBA, play other Live Ultimate Teams online, or move up by taking part in Fantasy Showdowns. Fantasy Showdowns can feature current NBA players or fantasy line-ups of past players. It's all about earning those coins.

Better performances earn more coins. Coins can be earned through dominant team performances, as well as individual accolades, such as racking up a certain number of blocks or posting a double-double. Take these hard-earned coins to the Store to buy packs of players, jerseys, coaches and more. You can also win packs by completing in specific Fantasy Showdowns.



In addition to collecting new players for your dream team (watch for featured Players of the Week and NBA alums), you can gather special jerseys, arenas, logos, even coaches, and the list is expected to grow as the new mode evolves.

NBA LIVE 14 will release for the Xbox One in North America on November 19 (yes, three days before the Xbox One itself) and worldwide November 22.
