NBA Live 19 will allow you to create female players, a first for the video game basketball series. The next entry in the non-2K NBA game will be out on September 9.

The WNBA is coming to NBA Live 18, publisher EA said today. This is the WNBA’s first appearance in a basketball video game, although the NBA Live series has been shaky in recent years.

NBA Live 17 will not arrive this fall, but early next year under the more generic title NBA Live. The series hasn’t been so hot for a while but try try again? On an investor call, EA said more details are coming soon, and a mobile game is coming later this year. The NBA All-Star game takes place in February.

You’ll be able to sample some of NBA Live 16’s new gameplay modes for free next month. On September 15, a free demo will let players try out Live Run, where two teams of five play on famous street courts, and Summer Circuit, a co-op option where you’ll play against pros.
