NBA 2K21 Full Press Release
Everything is Game in the NBA 2K21 Current-Gen Demo!
2K today released the NBA 2K21 current-generation demo for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. This year’s demo includes four playable teams. Tap into your Mamba mentality with Kobe Bryant and the All-Time Lakers, experience greatness with the iconic Bill Russell and the All-Time Celtics or dominate the court through Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kawhi Leonard with NBA title contenders Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.
The NBA 2K21 demo offers ballers an opportunity to try out some of the latest gameplay innovations that are detailed in the Current-Gen Gameplay Courtside Report. From major innovations to the Pro Stick to a redesigned shooting system, NBA 2K21 features plenty of new upgrades, improvements and changes that bring the series to a new level.
Additionally, the demo heralds the return of the ever popular MyPLAYER Builder. Select your position, set your attributes and get a first look at what type of builds will be able in NBA 2K21. There’s plenty of new things to check out, including the new addition of oversized 6’8 point guards, and your created build carries over from the demo into the full game when it launches on Sept. 4, enabling you to jump in right away. Whether you want to slash to the basket like Russell Westbrook, create space and nail jumpers like Jayson Tatum or command the court from the high post like Nikola Jokić, everything is game in NBA 2K21.
Lastly, due to the delay in the start of the 2020-21 NBA season, NBA 2K is taking a new approach to the player ratings reveal for NBA 2K21. This year, NBA 2K will update player ratings upon the release of NBA 2K21 for next-generation consoles, following the completion of the 2019-20 NBA season, to ensure the ratings are reflective of the player’s performance this season. At that time, all updated NBA player ratings will be implemented across NBA 2K21 for current- and next-gen consoles.
More information on NBA 2K21 for next-gen consoles will be announced at a later date. For any questions regarding NBA 2K21 Dual-Access, please review the NBA 2K21 Dual-Access FAQ here: https://nba.2k.com/faq/
