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.
