2K has released a new trailer for NBA 2K17, and this time around they’re focusing on arena authenticity.
The trailer, which you can find up top, showcases how the team at Visual Concepts have faithfully recreated team stadiums within the game. It’s less of a documentation of the process, and more of a demonstration of the results, but if you’re interested in accuracy it’s worth a watch.
As noted in the trailer itself, Visual Concepts has created authentic crowds, team specific details, and arena specific sounds. To bring the arenas to life, the team traveled over 16,000 miles, recording over 200 hours of live NBA games across all 30 NBA teams.
We’ve seen similar processes before, but it’s always great to know that the team behind a sports franchise has enthusiasm for accuracy. As you can see from the trailer, the team behind NBA 2K17 seems to be no exception.
What do you think of the work the team has done on creating authentic arenas? Let us know in the comments or on social media, and be sure to stay tuned to SGO for more NBA 2K17 news.
