News Roundup August 3rd

WNBA teams playable in NBA Live 18, Rebellion and Team 17 publishing sales on Steam, and the official trailer for Telltale's Batman: The Enemy Within.

The girls have skills

The team roster for NBA Live 18 just got bigger.  EA has announced that all the teams from the WNBA will be available to play in the upcoming basketball title.  The players of the WNBA have been given the same treatment as the men with face scans and motion capture sessions.  The WNBA teams can be played in the Play Now and Online Versus modes, unfortunately scratching the ability to take these teams into a franchise mode.

This appears to be a slam dunk for both sides.  Adding diversity and expanding the roster only helps NBA Live 18 and more exposure is certainly a good thing for the WNBA.

Save on some great titles

Over at the Steam marketplace, two big publisher sales are now live through the weekend. Rebellion has several titles discounted for their big discount weekend, with savings up to 80 percent off.  Don't forget to check out the Team 17 publishing sale as well, with titles such as Dangerous Golf, Yooka-Laylee, and the Worms franchise being slashed in price.

Batman has his work cut out

Telltale has released the official trailer for Batman: The Enemy Within.  While having to deal with the antics of The Riddler as Batman, Bruce Wayne will also find himself under duress as well.
