NBA Live 15 is a basketball video game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One released on October 28, 2014 in North America and released on October 31, 2014 in Europe. NBA Live 15 features Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers as its cover athlete. The release date was moved due to EA Sports wanting to polish the title before release.[1]

Development[edit]

The first gameplay look is introduced by EA Sports with 8 player 3D-scans. The changes are graphical improvements for the jerseys, arenas, shot clocks, the basket, and more. On court mechanics have also been refined, as well as animations. It has been touted as an "realistic simulation" by its producers.[2] EA Sports scanned 70% of NBA players.
