2K Sports has announced more details on NBA 2K21, including news about a demo and how the gameplay is changing on current-generation platforms. There are some major changes coming to the controls, with the pro stick getting a significant overhaul this year, while there is a new shot meter, more shot types, and signature moves. We break down all the major changes below.
Players can test out some of these new features through a free demo will be available for NBA 2K21 on August 24 for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The demo won’t be available on PC and Stadia, it seems. In previous years, 2K released a demo of sorts called The Prologue, but it’s not clear if this is that or something else.
Basketball For Everyone
Regarding the current-generation gameplay updates for NBA 2K21, the developer said this year in particular it is trying to make the game appeal to a “wide range of fans.” Players who want a hardcore simulation experience will have it, while the game is also aiming to appeal to newcomers.
