NBA 2K21 fans got a first look into what the gameplay is going to look like with the new trailer released Thursday morning. The trailer only focuses on the current generation console version, which will be released on September 4.
What Fans Learned About NBA 2K21 Gameplay Trailer
Unfortunately for fans, not much information was revealed in terms of what gamers can expect from the gameplay. The trailer showed a few seconds of Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard taking the final shot in a game against the San Antonio Spurs. Two different camera views were shown: one behind Lillard, and the other a broadcast version of the shot. A shot meter was shown on Lillard’s body like seen in previous games to show if the shot was good.
The rest of the trailer highlights various superstar players across different teams’ arenas. With artist Stormzy’s song playing in the background, gamers see some of the different player movements in action including all kinds of dribble moves, feints, baseline reverse, pull-up jumpers, shot blocks, between-the-legs, drives to the paint, and of course a host of gorgeous dunks. NBA 2K21‘s trailer showcases the return to Kevin Harlan as the play-by-play commentator, and a brief clip shows the late Kobe Bryant on a driving reverse slam. Finally, we see a quick cut of international locations names including Berlin, Melbourne, and Barcelona. The slogan that the game is using for this year’s title is “Everything is game.”
The current-gen game will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 4. The next-gen console game is scheduled to be released during the holidays later this year. NBA 2K21‘s Mamba Special Edition will come with a free next-gen console upgrade when purchased. Gamers can pre-order NBA 2K21 right now.
