NBA 2K16 News Post


Visual Concepts Community Managers Ronnie Singh and Chris Manning just finished streaming some head-to-head gameplay of NBA 2K16 on the company's official Twitch channel. Their match between the Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors was played on Superstar difficulty and default Simulation sliders.

If you didn't get to see the event live, click here to start watching the archive. The actual broadcast starts at timestamp 5:46. If you don't want to spend an hour-and-a-half watching the whole show, here is all of the new information that was announced:

Notes
  • NBA 2K16's Play Now leaderboards will reward users who don't always pick the most talented teams. Previously, the leaderboards were mostly just determined by total wins and total losses.

  • NBA 2K16's online servers will be turned on "late tomorrow."

  • The "Momentous" trailer will be officially released tomorrow afternoon.
My Career
  • All existing NBA 2K16 My Career save files will be deleted from the 2K servers sometime tomorrow.

  • My Career will once again have unlockable endorsements from actual companies like Kia and Gatorade.
Gameplay
  • You can now select which side of the on-ball defender's body your screener will come to.

  • The ball handler will have access to four signature dribbles by holding down the R2 button.

  • Prerecorded player interviews will occasionally be shown during stoppages in play.

  • There are new shooting follow-through animations that give you natural visual feedback on whether or not you're taking good/bad shots, which is helpful if you like to have the shot meter disabled.

  • The new defensive meter will light up whenever you are in a good position to contest a shot.

  • Manual instant replays now have several new options that are designed to help NBA 2K's video editing community.

I don't understand why 2k doesn't want to change the control schemes when a dev and a affiliate both having issues with it.

Seperate shooting and driving on the buttons.

Happens so often to me to. Really annoying.
Live has this down imo. We can pass the ball 5 diffrent ways yet we can't determine wheather to drive or shoot.

Isn't Live pretty much the same control wise? One button to shoot the other is for hop/euro step. I'm pretty sure Live ditched the speerage shoot and layup buttons awhile back.

Make free throws then,lol. Absolutely nothing wrong with what he did.

Watch the last couple minutes of this, same thing. It's a strategy.

I missed the stream. Anyone know where I can watch it?

I really have the feeling that they dropped the ball once again with CAP. Heard nothing about body scaling , hairstyles, sock length, and most importantly custom jumpshots... Smh

Don't know anything about sock length but body scaling is the same as '15, there's tons of hairstyles & colors, and there's (probably) more sig jumpers. The real question is whether tattoos are toggle-able.

Must say that the gameplay looks really good.

I didn't see anything about new colors. Where'd you see that? I want those crazy colors back, like blue and green.

As in, save for height and wingspan, everybody has the exact same body and the weight slider doesn't do a thing? Say it ain't so...

Was it just me or did the player movement seem really slow and sluggish?? It just never looked felt like Ronnie nor LD2k had great control of their ball handlers - lots of small shifty movements that would result in those canned sucking animations. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but the player movement didn't seem nearly as quick and explosive as previous 2k games.

I believe I remember someone saying this before... don't quote me on that.
