Damian Lillard Visits EA SPORTS

NBA Rookie of the Year and rising star Damian Lillard stopped by the EA SPORTS studio in Orlando for an in-depth motion capture session.

The NBA LIVE development team had Lillard perform his signature moves including defender-freezing hesitations, rock-solid handles and his lightning-quick first step. The precise animation data gathered, combined with bounceTek, allows the NBA LIVE team to replicate his exact real-life movement in NBA LIVE 14. This November, you’ll be able to move and play just like the Rookie of the Year.

Check out some behind-the-scenes pictures from Lillard’s day with EA SPORTS.

Lillard gets suited up for his first-ever mocap shoot. The EA Capture Lab team makes sure to have every reference marker in place to record the most-accurate data possible.

With Lillard fully suited up, the team took some reference shots before he headed out to the court.

Lillard unleashes his deadly crossover against NBA LIVE 14 designer (and former pro baller) Scott O’Gallagher.

After an intense morning capture session, Damian sat down to talk about NBA LIVE 14, the Portland Trail Blazers, and his love for the game.

That’s a wrap, LIVE fans! Look for more from Damian Lillard and NBA LIVE 14 very soon.


NBA LIVE 14 will be available later this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Preorder today, and be sure to check the NBA LIVE website, Facebook and Twitter for updates throughout the summer.
