There are a lot of great games coming out next year, but that does not mean that there are not some good video games coming out to finish the second half of the year. In fact, it is that time where plenty of sports games are coming out pretty soon.

Sports games are amazing because they are addicting and fun, but they also bring gamers together and bring a competitiveness unlike any other type of game.

Other sports games arriving soon

"Madden NFL 18" is set to arrive on August 25th and it is bringing a lot of new features. The game is going to have a brand new single-player mode called Longshot and it is going to have unreleased music on it.

Ratings for the top players at every position have been announced as well.

Although, "NBA 2K18" with All-Star Kyrie Irving on the cover looks equally impressive. The game is making its debut on September 19th. However, there will be ways for players to Play The Game ahead of time.

That same day "NBA live 18" will be released. A demo has recently been made available to gamers. EA Sports is actually making a good business decision in discounting pre-orders by 33% to attract fans and other players to purchase their game.

The trailer

The first trailer for the game was released a while ago. 2K recently released another gameplay trailer that sports impressive graphics and realistic motions. The attention to detail is spot-on and each player looks life-like.

Each player's characteristics and mannerisms are captured in the game.

The accurate portrayals of the star players are remarkable. For example, they even got Lonzo Ball's unorthodox shooting motion correct.

The trailer features hit song "Shook Ones," by artist Mobb Deep. The game will also have 49 songs on the soundtrack. An article by Chris Pereira via GameSpot reminds us that the trailer does not show an actual game being played amongst competitors.

How can I play the game beforehand?

There are ways to play the game before it comes out. Fans can download "The Prelude," a free download on the PS4 and Xbox One, which traditionally, will allow players to create their own character and begin playing "MyCareer Mode." This free game mode will be released on September 8th.

Those who pre-order the game will be able to play the game four days early and get other bonuses. It is obvious that the game will be successful, as almost every modern sports game is. Looking at how accurate and impressive the game looks, it looks undoubtedly great.
