NBA 2K16 is giving you the ability to spectate, and they’re calling it 2K StreamCast. The new feature will allow you to spectate NBA 2K16 games on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One while they’re in-progress, but you can also watch them after they wrap up.
2K StreamCast will become available this weekend on Saturday, May 21. That’s just in time for the finals of NBA 2K‘s first Road to the Finals tournament. As of May 21, you’ll be able to watch all of the games live, directly from your console. The games will also become available on-demand to watch afterwards.
If you haven’t been paying attention, the Road to the Finals tournament will pit 16 teams against one another for a shot at being one of the two finalists to compete for the championship on June 1. Games will take place between 10 AM and 6 PM Pacific, with a full day of streaming featuring Chris Manning, Ronnie2K, along with some of the developers behind NBA 2K.
Unfortunately for the moment, 2K StreamCast seems to be limited to games in the Road to the Finals tournament, but hopefully it’ll become more open in the future to allow for spectating your friends. Well, I know one feature I’d like to see in NBA 2K17.
Will you be checking out the tournament through 2K StreamCast? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
