It’s time for an update to the NBA2K series, and fans cannot wait as presales go through the roof on popular game platforms.
The franchise has built a massive worldwide following since their first award-winning version of the NBA2K game and has gone from monster release to monster release, making it the most successful NBA game franchise ever. Every new version has featured better controller support, improved gameplay movements, more animations, shooting systems, story lines, real life aspects and more. Their aim was always to engage the player in every basketball decision and action with lifelike, ultra-realistic NBA gameplay, and boy! Did they deliver! In my opinion, every release has made the world a better place.
Over the years, previous game enhancements included celebrity producers, scriptwriters and artists like JAY Z to improve game delivery, range, and soundtracks.
This time, MyPLAYER starts with face scanning via the MyNBA 2K cell phone application.
You can now choose an archetype with ten attribute categories which will impose limits on future gameplay but will allow you to put together focused teams with unique strengths later on. Gameplay begins with college games in a compressed game version as a prelude to the full release on September 16. Your new running mate is Justice Young, played by Michael B. Jordan and there is a big new cast with Demetrius Grosse, Alisha Wainwright, Jak Knight, Johno Wilson, Joe Williamson and others who will appear in your MyPLAYER’s life, triggered by your actions in the game.
As your Orange Juice increases, you get more control and more options. You will get more offers from endorsement companies, make more connections in your MyCOURT hub for better opportunities in MyCAREER. Communication is mostly text-based.
Join up at the hottest ever virtual hangout among other players and fans – online action will feature a DJ and special effects for the virtual crowd.
Another new feature is an improvement to the MyPARK matchmaking to give newbies a chance to find their virtual feet gradually. Vets will be playing vets for true head-to-head contests. There is a 4-man announcement team with NBA reporter David Aldridge as the new sideline reporter.
Since it was first nominated for 70 “Game of the Year” awards ‘back in the day’, the franchise has returned several times to excite and titillate us with better graphics, expanded options, and newer features. Judging from the rivulets of sweat on buffed bodies, and the focus and determination on player’s faces (Your face!) we can see on the digital preview, the NBA 2K17 is going to be gigantic. More player control over everything in the game turns this from a mere NBA sports game into something of a life strategy experience with the most authentic graphics ever seen in a sports game. NBA2K retains their title as the franchise that “all sports video games should aspire to be” (GamesRadar).
