EA Sports’ NBA Live 19 To Feature Female Create a Player Mode, Good News For WNBA

After introducing WNBA players last year, EA Sports announced a Female Create A Player mode for NBA LIve 19.

EA Sports announced this week that the upcoming installment of their basketball video game franchise would include female create-a-player — a first for the series. The feature comes a year after NBA Live introduced WNBA teams and players to the franchise.

Once you create a female basketball player, you can play in NBA Live’s career mode. The player will have access to the same skills, challenges and career progression as the male characters.

Basketball player and TV actress Brittney Elena is one of the female athletes included in the game. She shared her excitement on Twitter.

“So thankful EA Sports NBA made this opportunity happen for women to create their own characters!” she wrote.

The inclusion of female players is an important step toward leveling the playing field. It is also providing gamers with increased opportunities to express their individuality and create a reflection of themselves while competing in the game.

NBA 2K has essentially dominated the basketball video game space over the years. Meanwhile, NBA Live has struggled to climb back to relevance since its return. This new addition might put a dent in that dominance.
