NBA Live is in somewhat of an interesting transition. Rather than focus on the console version of the game which has been losing to NBA 2K recently, EA decided to focus on the mobile version of the game, pushing a console release of NBA Live 17 into next year.
Now they’re rolling out the mobile version of the game, NBA Live Mobile. The best news, as you may have noticed from the headline, is that NBA Live Mobile is already available for both Android and iOS. All too often do Android users have to wait and play second fiddle, despite the larger market share the operating system has enjoyed in recent years.
According to the blog post from EA, NBA Live Mobile will offer 5v5 basketball, with a number of daily events inspired by real life that will offer you a number of skill challenges. You can control your team or let the AI take control, building your NBA Ultimate Team along the way.
Here are some of the features you can expect from the game:
Live Events: Regularly updated short session challenges that reflect day-to-day events in the NBA
Head-To-Head Games: Play competitive, ranked games against other users in your division. As you climb the divisional leader boards you’ll progress to higher tiers, earning greater rewards and legendary status.
Season Mode: Start a season whenever you want and play all the way to the finals for great rewards. Complete multiple seasons for super rare rewards.
Friends Matches: Invite friends and play against them for fun. Earn special “Friend Collectibles” to redeem rare prizes from Friend Sets.
Leagues: Create or join a league (clan) for friendly intra-league matches and competitive tournaments with other leagues.
Team Management: Review and edit your line-ups to fine-tune your team.
Set Collection: Collectible items also form a large part of the reward system in NBA Mobile. Players will use these to complete a range of collection sets to redeem great prizes.
The Store and Auction House: Buy items in the store and join the excitement of the Auction House to sell or bid on rare players.
