ASU alum James Harden to be on cover of ‘NBA Live 18’
Houston Rockets star and former Sun Devil basketball standout James Harden will grace the cover of EA Sports’ “NBA Live 18.”
A video released Thursday showed Harden in the video game and declared him the cover athlete. “NBA Live 18” is slated for a September release after the franchise didn’t come out with a 2017 release for Playstation or Xbox. It did, however, release “NBA Live Mobile” last year.
The whole thing seems like a pretty sweet deal for Harden, since he’s not only on the cover of the game — he’s on the cover twice.
A free demo of “NBA Live 18” will be available on Friday on PS4 and Xbox One.
“NBA Live” primarily competes with the “NBA 2K” video game series.
