Developer Visual Concepts has surprised players for the early demo release of NBA2K21. The demo is now available for download on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
The demo only features four playable teams but has a few surprises for NBA fans. The demo gives fans the chance to play two “All-Time” teams including the Kobe Bryant-led Los Angeles Lakers.
In addition, another historic team can be controlled by fans through the iconic Boston Celtics team led by the legend Bill Russell. The other two playable teams are the West 2nd seed Los Angeles Clippers and East top seed Milwaukee Bucks.
The NBA2K21 demo provides players the ability to experience new additional features including a revamped shooting system and the Courtside Report. On top of that, the demo also includes a MyPlayer Builder which allows players to customize their characters in order to dominate the court. The developers also revealed that the progress made from the demo will be carried over once they buy the full version of the game.
NBA2K21 will also be released on the next-gen consoles including the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. However, because of the current global coronavirus pandemic, the developers said that they won’t be updating player rankings until the game is released on the next-gen consoles. Their main reason for doing this is to guarantee that the in-game ratings will reflect the performance of a player for the currently delayed season.
The NBA2K21 full game will be released on September 4, 2020, with a launch price of $69.99.
