We’re just a few days away from the release of one of the most anticipated Playstation games every year—NBA2K21. What makes this game so exciting every year, you ask? Simple: The NBA2K21 team of developers excels in developing the game every single year



The NBA2K team released its first trailer last Oct. 7 and right off the bat, garnered rave reviews from gamers. If you compare this to the past few games, this version showcases some jaw-dropping, never seen before graphics. The players look way more like themselves and the game’s speed is way faster compared to NBA2K20. One of the best parts about this game is that it comes in three different covers, specifically the Mamba Forever edition (Kobe Bryant cover), current-generation (Damian Lillard cover) and next-generation (Zion Williamson) edition.

In terms of gameplay, NBA 2K21 has more upgraded features like adding a pro-stick shooting feature, dribble moves, 40 new jump shot landings and more. Each player will get an upgrade in terms of their playing style so expect LeBron James to do his typical in-game celebration after a three point play or Steph Curry to get the audience growling after hitting a three pointer. 

The soundtrack, my career and demo mood will also get a new look. The audio will include notable artists like Polo G, Roddy Ricch, Stormzy and Tory Lanez. For my career mode, players will now get the opportunity to run in the park at 2k Beach and journey with them from high school to college to the NBA.
