THIS past Friday was what’s referred to by NBA 2K fans as 2K Day. Backing onto the weekend, 2K Day was the official launch day of NBA 2K21. This means many fans have been grinding non-stop over the last few days.
“This may be one of the most unique years for the NBA and basketball gaming ever, and the team at Visual Concepts is proud to bring NBA 2K21 to millions of players around the world,” said Greg Thomas, president at Visual Concepts. “We’re very excited to jump on the sticks and join our community of players today; we can’t wait to see you on the court.”
This years release sees the return of MyTEAM, MyCAREER, the WNBA and a new Neighbourhood called “2K Beach.” NBA 2K21 also includes improvements across gameplay like the return of the advanced Pro Stick, unseen since NBA 2K17. The new and improved shooting system means shots require a lot more skill and precision. While some praise the skill gap involved, there are many others who find it to be way too challenging. After hearing player feedback, it was announced on the official NBA 2K Twitter account that a shooting hotfix was inbound for Rookie, Pro and All-Star difficulty levels. This hotfix went live in the early hours of this morning.
What do we think about the new shooting system? Keep an eye out for that and our overall thoughts on NBA 2K21 in the next week.
