It's just over a week before the global release date of NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. I can't believe it is coming! I still remember what I wrote in my last stadium report that the past year had been an incredible year for everyone at VC and many of our friends in the game industry. The ability to release the new next-generation NBA 2K game simultaneously with the next-generation console at this moment is the best proof of the hard work and dedication of the entire team to make NBA 2K21 the best basketball experience. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the whole Visual Concepts development team for their dedication!
In all the stadium reports released so far, we talked about the next-generation gaming experience and innovations in player animation, collisions, AI behavior, etc. Especially the picture...the effect needless to say! At the same time, it also introduced the new WNBA modes: Women's Basketball Career, Women's Basketball Career Online, and Women's Basketball League, bringing the long-awaited game mode into the "NBA 2K" women's basketball game. I think everyone should have seen the following way in the trailer, so the development team of Visual Concepts is here to introduce to you: the city of basketball!
When we were making the next generation, the modern console version of NBA 2K14, we introduced the "park" mode. We hope to create a competitive online basketball world so that NBA 2K's growing fan base can compete outside of traditional NBA games. In other words, they can interact with their players in a new place, team up with friends, and fight against strange players. Like a half-court battle in an outdoor court or a 10-person team battle in a local basketball center, players can engage in temporary engagements in the "park" and blend into this unique competitive atmosphere.
In the past seven years, the park has continuously evolved and developed many wealthy online functions. With the NBA 2K community's prosperity, the park experience quickly transformed into a "block," becoming one of the most popular models for a long time. We are very proud of the world we have created, and we are also shocked by the competitiveness and creativity that fans have shown in it.
