EARLIER today the Playstation 5 reveal showed off many new IP’s as well as some old fan favourites coming to the next gen console. Among those was NBA 2K21 showing off just how powerful this console is going to be. Starring NBA star Zion Williamson, the backboard-shattering teaser features ultra realistic movements as well as very real looking sweat beads.
“New console launches are few and far between, and we’re incredibly excited to show a sneak peek at what our fans can look forward to from NBA 2K21 running on next-gen hardware,” stated Melissa Bell, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing at 2K. “Today’s showing is just a glimpse of how our team is building the future of gaming with NBA 2K21, and how we’re creating the most realistic sports simulation on the planet – a must-have title for sports fans and gamers alike this year.”
“From graphics as in-your-face as Zion’s dunk to almost unrecognizable loading speeds of less than two seconds, NBA 2K21 for next gen is poised to shatter all our previous notions of what this franchise can deliver,” said Thomas. ”With 2K21, we’ve got something that merges incredible graphic capabilities with new in-game opportunities to reset the sports sim standard.”
“I’m hyped by how realistic the next gen gameplay is and how accurately it captures my looks and playing style,” stated New Orleans Pelicans’ Zion Williamson. “It’s mind blowing to see what 2K has created with NBA 2K21. I can’t wait to see what else NBA 2K21 has in store.”
NBA 2K21 is expected to debut this spring.
