NBA 2K16 News Post


2K Sports released a new episode of NBA 2KTV today, complete with some of the first details of this upcoming year's game. Here are some of the highlights:
  • There will be more retro/classic teams in this year's game. Three teams were revealed: '99-'00 Raptors, '07-08 Celtics, '00-'01 Lakers. Based off of Scott's response, more teams will be revealed at a later date.
  • Some new shoes have been confirmed for Dwyane Wade and Klay Thompson. They are currently trying to get BrandBlack and Jamal Crawford's shoe in the game. Shoes are getting 3D scanned, so they should look a lot more realistic this year.
  • Reshot all of the crowd animations this year. A lot more exciting and pumped up animations to take the atmosphere to the next level as well.
  • Mike Wang: Biggest and most challenging year with gameplay yet. They're working on something big, it'll make the game look significantly better than any game before it.

At the end of the Mike Wang segment of the 2K16 preview, he says two words which the editing cleverly covers up. The details in the video are certainly solid, but we're even more anxious now to hear what else the 2K crew has up their sleeve for this season.

Any guesses on the 'big thing' they're working on for this year?

In all seriousness tho, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of info. I was expecting talk about how VC would play a bigger role in this game.

Something big regarding animations?

Real time physics maybe?

Wang: "I can describe 2k16 in two words (Fill in the blank)"

I wonder what those 2 words could be????

No PS4/XOne Crew, no care.

the only 2 words that could give anyone a smile that big has to be "my crew" or "crew mode" imo

RTP has been on wish list long before crew was popular

The more classic teams, the better. I like playing a franchise with all those old guys in there. Makes it more fun for me.

Yep my first reaction was 'body scans'.

All I know is E3 can't get here soon enough.
