Last week we received the third and final gameplay blog for NBA 2K21 Next Gen, but this week has delivered our first real look at the game in action. The official NBA 2K YouTube channel has posted a video featuring just under four minutes of raw gameplay between the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors.
Executive Producer Erick Boenisch and Gameplay Director Mike Wang also provide commentary on what’s being spotlighted. In addition to showing off the usual gameplay mechanics including the Next Gen version of the Shot Meter, the video also reveals that there will be more than one commentary team, so it won’t always be Kevin Harlan on the call. The action is also shown from a new angle that’s been added in Next Gen.
You can check out the video below, or watch it here over on YouTube. What do you make of our first real look at NBA 2K21 Next Gen gameplay? Have your say in the comments below, and join in the discussion here in the Forum! The game is just a couple of weeks away from release, so we can likely expect more developer blogs and gameplay videos to follow.
