The lights are on
With the king of basketball gracing the cover of the king of video game hoops, the NBA 2K series is riding high. Today's gameplay-centric trailer showcases many of the new features coming to the hardcourt this year.
Though they are not called out specifically, you can see some of the new additions at work in this video. The myriad dunks and lay-ups speak to a renewed aggressiveness given to the AI – if a player likes to drive the lane in real life, expect them to take it to the rim in NBA 2K14. The no-look passes speak to the new pass stick functionality, which is activated by holding down the left trigger. You can also see the rewritten blocking system at work, which should make defending a much more active affair for skilled big men. Check out the footage for yourself:
Be sure to come back to the site later this week for a full rundown of everything we know about the current-gen version of NBA 2K14.
NBA 2K14 launches for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 2. A next-gen version is slated to appear on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a later, anannounced date.
