"Never before have we been able to deliver this level of visual fidelity and realism in a video game," stated Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts. "NBA 2K21 is the standout title that best delivers the promise of next-gen: truly revolutionary graphics, lighting-fast load times and incredible new features and gameplay only possible on next-generation hardware."
As per above the next-gen version of NBA 2K21 (which will be sold separately) will also benefit from the faster storage speeds of the next-gen consoles. Here's a breakdown of what's coming.
An eye-popping leap in graphical advancements: next-gen lighting, textures, physics, animations, and more that push NBA 2K21’s visual presentation to the bleeding edge;
Rebuilt player movement and player impact, driven by new on-court animation and collision engines that make for a smoother, tougher game;
The entire arena comes to life, with more than 150 unique AI-driven characters interacting seamlessly to create a ground-breaking Lower Bowl experience;
An expanded soundtrack with 202 songs at launch and more to come.
The expanded crowd stuff is particularly impressive, and when paired with the broadcast quality camera angles, close-ups, and sweeping movements, it looks as close to the real thing as we've ever seen. Sports titles are always great next-gen showcases and NBA 2K21 is no different.
