ASU alum James Harden to be on cover of ‘NBA Live 18’

Aug 10, 2017, 11:49 AM

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.
