NBA 2K21 is the new installment in the sports and basketball saga by Visual Concepts and 2K Games for PC , PlayStation 4 , Xbox One , PlayStation 5 , Xbox Series X , Switch and Stadia .
With major improvements in graphics and gameplay, competitive online and community features, and deep and varied game modes, NBA 2K21 offers a unique immersion in all facets of NBA basketball and its culture.
Several youtube videos have put the current version of the 2K Games video game face to face with the new graphics engine for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S
As promised by 2K Games, the next gen version change was going to be worth it.
A couple of comparison videos are enough to verify and understand that NBA 2K21 for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S will be something totally different from the versions of PS4 and Xbox One.
As we see in these comparative materials published by the channels kforkevo and BBallCreator, which use the gameplay of the PlayStation 5 version and compare them to that of the current Sony console PS4, the realism, polygonal detail, lighting and animations are of another level.
Physics elevate the visual presentation of the title to a new notch.
For this reason, the North American company 2K justified the increase in price of the PS5 and Xbox Series editions and why they cannot be upgraded for free.
NBA 2K21 Comes to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in November
The development team has worked on a rebuilt motion and impact technology , supported by new animation and collision engines that they hope will allow for smoother and more physical gameplay.
To that we included the incorporation of more than 150 unique spectators created by artificial intelligence, who will interact in a realistic way with the rest of the stage to make the setting more immersive; especially in the lower tier.
Finally, this version of NBA 2K21 for PS5 and Xbox Series X | S will arrive with a total of 202 launch songs , a number ostensibly higher than on PS4 and Xbox One.
All in all, NBA 2K21 will be available in physical and digital format this November 10 for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S around the world; on November 12 for PlayStation 5 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
As for the rest of the world we will have to wait until November 19 to get hold of it on PS5, as it is the console’s release date.
