You don’t want to buy a pig in a poke.

EA Sports released a demo version of the latest iteration of its basketball series on Xbox One and PS4.

The demo features live events which are time-limited gameplay modes that as a reward give you characters and perks that will transfer should you buy the full game.

We will also be able to take a peek at the career mode called One, which lets us guide our own alter ego through a varied NBA life. The progress here will also carry over.

You will need subscriptions to The Live or PS Plus services to enjoy the demo.

NBA Live 18 is out September 15 on PS4 and Xbox One.
