Though NBA 2K is the video game franchise currently dominating the basketball landscape, NBA Live 18 has announced a new feature that no game has ever offered before. According to a recent press release, NBA Live 18 will include WNBA teams and players through a new, dedicated gameplay mode.

On top of all the traditional NBA action, digital ballers will now be able to play in WNBA Play Now, which includes the teams in the women's professional league and face-capture graphics from some of the leagues biggest stars, like Maya Moore, Brittney Griner, Diana Taurasi, Tina Charles, Sylvia Fowles, Alisha Gray, Chelsea Gray, Jonquel Jones, and Alyssa Thomas. The game also performed motion capture analysis with the 2017 first round pick, Kelsey Plum, in order to simulate the league's play style as accurately as possible.
