Just as we move closer to Gamescom, EA releases a video about their cover star announcement.
The video based on the quote “Follow No One, Be The One”, has revealed the cover star as the Houston Rockets Guard, James Harden. The game will release on September 19th, this year for PS4 and Xbox One while for those who preorder would be able to get the game on September 15th. In addition, players who pre-order the game will receive an additional 33% of the retail price which is 59.99$ “at participating retailers”.
Along with that the video also gives August 11 as the Demo Release Date of the game for both PS4 and Xbox One via the Playstation Plus and Xbox Live Gold.
It’s the first time James Harden has been solely chosen as the cover star of a game, while he still shared the cover of NBA 2K16 with Steph Curry.
