EA Sports has unveiled some more gameplay features for the upcoming release of NBA Live 18.

One of the most interesting new features that will be included in the game is represented by the Play Styles.

Each player can pretty much choose his or her style according to “templates” that try to mimic real-life situations. Each play style comes with offensive and defensive strengths and comparisons. Players can fall into three categories: Guard, Wing, and Big.
