NBA Live 14 Cover Athlete Kyrie Irving Prepares to Dunk in First Gameplay Footage

Posted on September 18, 2013 AT 01:46pm

EA Sports released the first gameplay footage from NBA LIve 14 int he form of a 50-second trailer set to “Strictly 4 My Jeeps” by Action Bronson.

The trailer, embedded below, shows a tip off and Cleveland Cavaliers point guard—and NBA Live 14 cover athlete—Kyrie Irving taking the ball up the court and leaping to make a dunk before cutting to a black screen with text that reads “to be continued.”

NBA Live 14 marks the series debut on next-gen consoles, and the first new NBA Live release since 2009′s NBA Live 10. The series was to be succeeded by NBA Elite, starting with NBA Elite 11, which only saw release on iOS versions. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were plagued with development issues. Development of the series was then shifted from EA Canada to Florida-based EA Tiburon, who began work on NBA Live 13. The title was ultimately cancelled.

“Rather than launch midway through the season, we’re going to sit out the full year and stay focused on making next year’s game great,” then EA vice president (now CEO) Andrew Wilson wrote in a post on the game’s official website.

EA recently announced that NBA Live 14 would launch November 19 on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, four days after the PlayStation 4 hits shelves and three days before the Xbox One’s release.
