NBA 2K21 Demo Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, & Switch

NBA 2K21 Demo Released

The Current Gen NBA 2K21 Demo is now available to download for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. As previously noted, there will be no demo released on PC. It will however be receiving the same full version of the game on September 4th.

This year’s demo once again features the MyPLAYER Builder, giving us the ability to test out different builds for MyCAREER and its connected modes. It also allows us to shoot around in 2KU, and adjust to the new shooting and dribbling mechanics. The current Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers, and All-Time Lakers and Celtics, also provide a preview of 5v5 gameplay.

As was the case last year, your created build will carry over into the full version of NBA 2K21. Note however that there is a limit of five quick games in the demo, so you won’t be able to play it indefinitely before the full game is released. We can also only play one game with each MyPLAYER that we create in the builder. Like last year, it’s a very limited taste.

Update: I originally reported that the Nintendo Switch did not receive the demo, which isn’t the case. Thanks to the official NBA 2K Reddit Twitter account for the correction!

5+1 is cheap from the 2K side. Please rap on it in the pod. I used to play the NBA 2K13 demo on a treadmill on Wii U before bought the full version, because Dallas and Miami were at our disposal to play indefinitely.
Yesterday I though to get a crack on the demo, anyway – it showed 35 GB – I would have to delete something to get it a go, plus the download would take plenty of hours – so I passed by)
