NBA 2K20 MyTEAM Developer Blog & Trailer

NBA 2K20 MyTEAM Hub

The latest developer blog provides in-depth insights into what to expect from MyTEAM in NBA 2K20. A trailer has also dropped, providing a concise overview of this year’s mode. The blog is particularly lengthy and I recommend checking it out in full, but here is a brief summary:

  • Evolution cards are upgradeable by accomplishing single game and career tasks. A free and permanent Evolution card will be granted upon firing up the mode for the first time.
  • Single player Triple Threat has been re-designed, with randomly determined opponents. There is also a new prizing mechanic in the form of a slot machine.
  • There are bonuses for logging in daily, and special prizes for logging into MyTEAM every day of the week. Prizes include Tokens, MT, packs, and more. There’s also a prize wheel that can be accessed via Locker Codes, as well as the weekly grand prize for logging in every day.
  • Today in MyTEAM features special events and challenges. Limited Time Events are available during the peak playing hours in each region, while The Agenda is similar to the daily bonus tasks in last year’s mode, only much deeper and with custom objectives. There will also be different boards for the Ball Drop this year.
  • A Community Hub will allow interaction with the developers, provide tips and tricks, and so on.
  • Players can only be slotted in at their primary or secondary positions, preventing cheesy lineups.
  • The PRIME Collection is the top collection of premium cards. Throwbacks have been replaced by the Spotlight Collection. The Legacy Showcase series will spotlight Legends who deserve more attention.
  • Domination has been re-designed with Star levels depending on the difficulty you choose, and Heat Check cards have been tweaked. Online matchmaking has been improved along with server stability, and the Auction House will be accessible much sooner.
  • Players will still have contracts, as evident in the trailer.

NLSC Podcast #296: Do You Want to Build a MyPLAYER?

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #296 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! With the release of the NBA 2K20 Demo, I have some impressions to share, as well as some thoughts on the MyCAREER trailer, Game Informer preview, and other news from the past week.

The countdown to NBA 2K20 is entering its final two weeks, and we’re getting a better picture of what to expect. The MyCAREER trailer provided a glimpse of this year’s story, and while it promises great things, it also feels like more of the same. Meanwhile, the NBA 2K20 Demo’s hands-on preview of what to expect on the sticks has indicated that it’s not quite the same game this year. It’s not a deep demo, but it showcases aspects that are good, bad, promising, and concerning ahead of the full release. In other news, a Game Informer article suggests a much less grindy approach this year, and some preview videos confirm that some key players are missing from classic teams.

Tune in below!

Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as suggestions for topics that you’d like to hear us discuss in future episodes.

NBA 2K20 MyCAREER Trailer: When the Lights Are Brightest

NBA 2K20 MyCAREER Trailer

The NBA 2K20 MyCAREER trailer has dropped, giving us our first look at this year’s story. Titled “When the Lights Are Brightest”, the story is a co-production with SpringHill Entertainment, LeBron James’ and Maverick Carter’s production company. It comes just in time for the demo, which will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on August 21st.

This year’s tale will follow an NBA prospect named Che, with a focus on his life both on and off the court. It will apparently deal with off-court pressures and social issues, in addition to the path to becoming a star in the league. The cast includes Idris Elba, Rosario Dawson, and Thomas Middleditch. A variety of NBA players, past and present, also make cameos. Taylor Materne and Sheldon Candis are the writer and director respectively.

Check out the trailer below, or catch it here on YouTube.

You can also get a look behind the scenes here. We’ll presumably be getting a developer blog about MyCAREER very soon, providing a further insight into what to expect from this year’s mode. In the meantime, what do you make of the NBA 2K20 MyCAREER trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below, as well as join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum!

NBA 2K20 WNBA Developer Blog & Trailer

WNBA in NBA 2K20

Following on from the gameplay insight, the latest developer blog and trailer spotlights the WNBA in NBA 2K20. The blog explains the work that has gone into making the players look authentic, from faces and hairstyles to tattoos and models. It also details how the team worked on getting the WNBA teams to play differently to NBA squads, from the plays they run to thousands of authentic animations for the players. The game will also include a season mode, so the teams won’t only be available in Play Now.

Further insights can be found in the Integration Trailer. The trailer features behind the scenes footage of motion capture sessions and snippets from Gameplay Director Mike Wang, as well as gameplay footage of the teams and players in action. You can check it out below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.

It seems that a lot of work has gone into adding the WNBA to NBA 2K20, especially compared to additional content in previous years such as Euroleague teams. A season mode is also a step further than NBA Live’s efforts, though there’s no word as yet on what EA has planned for NBA Live 20.

NLSC Podcast #293: We’re Seeing What’s Next

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #293 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! As the preview season rolls on, Arcane and I are discussing the MyGM blog and “Next is Now” trailer for NBA 2K20, and the latest news on what’s happening with NBA Live 20.

Not everyone is thrilled about it, but the first NBA 2K20 developer blog revealed details on MyGM and MyLEAGUE. As we’re burned out on MyCAREER and thinking of returning to the franchise mode experience, it comes as good news. We’ve also received a longer look at gameplay thanks to the “Next is Now” trailer. It’s another slick production, but does it have us hyped for the game? Speaking of hype, the latest NBA Live 20 news has dampened our optimism somewhat. The game is slated to come out later than NBA 2K20 which may work in its favour, but with talk of a “different approach”, we do have some concerns.

NBA 2K20 Gameplay Trailer: “Next is Now”

NBA 2K20 Gameplay Trailer

After informing us that we should set our notifications yesterday, 2K has dropped the first NBA 2K20 gameplay trailer, titled “Next is Now”! As usual, the trailer features gameplay from cinematic angles, so anyone expecting raw gameplay or further insights is going to be disappointed. Nevertheless, it’s another slick production, and does indeed feature gameplay footage from NBA 2K20.

The trailer features the new duos that have formed this offseason, including LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook and James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, and Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Other Team 2K players such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum, and 2019 first overall pick Zion Williamson are also featured. Notably, although WNBA players were confirmed by the earlier teaser, they aren’t featured in this trailer.

Watch the trailer below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.

On this week’s show…

  • We tip off this week’s show with our thoughts on NBA Live 19, covering everything from gameplay and game modes to face scanning and commentary. There are definitely positives, though naturally we do have a few criticisms, too.
  • IGN awarded NBA Live 19 a score of 7.9, their best score for an NBA Live title this generation. We discuss the significance of the score, the progress NBA Live has made, and the direction the game is heading in.
  • NBA 2K19 has been described as the game we should’ve received last year. We discuss whether that’s a fair assessment, and offer up our own impressions. Suffice to say we have our gripes, but there are also aspects of the game we really like. We even have some nice things to say about the MyCAREER story!
  • We wrap up Episode #263 of the NLSC Podcast with our thoughts on the latest NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 trailer, and some news about the forthcoming release.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 Trailer; Out October 16th

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 Logo

We haven’t heard much of anything about NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 since the announcement back in July that it had joined the 2K Family. That’s now changed as a new trailer for the game titled “Ball Without Limits” has dropped today, spotlighting some of the key features of the game.

The trailer showcases gameplay from both regular and cinematic angles, while also highlighting features such as a revamped Three-Point Shootout, and the new Season and Championship modes. It also boasts new players, and confirms that Michael Jordan will be available in the game. A pack opening also shows a coin reward, seemingly confirming some sort of in-game currency (and somewhat bleakly, the prospect of microtransactions).

Check out the trailer below, or watch it here on YouTube.

We also have confirmation of a new release date for the game, as it will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on October 16th. What’s your take on NBA 2K Playgrounds 2? Will you be giving it a chance come October? Have your say in the comments section below, and join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum!

The Neighborhood Trailer for NBA 2K19

Ahead of the release of The Prelude on August 31st, 2K has dropped a trailer for The Neighborhood in NBA 2K19.

Court Battles in NBA Live 19; Trailer & Developer Blog

Court Battles in NBA Live 19

The latest trailer and developer blog for NBA Live 19 have provided us with details on Court Battles, a new competitive mode in The One. Court Battles involve taking on your friends and the rest of the NBA Live community on their own One Courts. This involves competing in games against an AI version of a user’s squad to earn unique bonuses and rewards, with an ultimate goal of “controlling” as many courts as possible. A breakdown of the key points is as follows:

  • Court Battles are comprised of Campaigns, which include both a “defend” and “attack” phase. Your AI squad defends your court, while you play the games attacking other courts.
  • Defending your court includes setting the custom rules, defensive lineup, attacker handicap (a restriction placed on the attacking team to make their games more challenging and aid in your defense), and a game plan for your AI squad.
  • There will be 38 custom rules at launch, with more settings being added throughout the year.
  • Players available for your squad are earned through The Streets World Tour, LIVE Events, and levelling up in terms of Court Hype and number of controlled courts.
  • As mentioned, the ultimate goal is to control as many courts as possible (in addition to your own), in order to level up and earn better rewards. Bonuses are rewarded for controlling your own court, facing a more difficult opponent, and so on.

Be sure to read the entire blog for the full insight! You can also watch the trailer below, or catch it here on YouTube.

NBA 2K19 Broadcast Trailer Featuring Bill Simmons

NBA 2K19: Broadcast Trailer

2K has released the second of two trailers for NBA 2K19 this week.

Not surprisingly, the game’s cover players – Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, and Ben Simmons – are heavily featured in the trailer.

The trailer confirms that Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett will be returning this year to provide guest commentary. Sportswriter Bill Simmons of The Ringer also joins the broadcast team this year as a guest commentator, with the trailer providing us with a preview of some of the remarks he’ll share during games.

NBA 2K19 MyCAREER Trailer: The Way Back

NBA 2K19 MyCAREER Trailer

2K Sports has dropped the official trailer for MyCAREER in NBA 2K19. Titled “The Way Back”, the trailer provides us with a glimpse of this year’s story, as well as some of the actors who will be playing key characters.

From the looks of things, this year’s MyPLAYER character – referred to in cutscenes as “AI” – ends up playing in China after being drafted. The story then appears to revolve around efforts to make it back to the United States and the NBA, including a stint in the G-League. These efforts to finally make it in the NBA appear to tie in with the “They Will Know Your Name” tagline that was revealed in early previews. Exact details about the story and features of the mode are yet to be revealed, but should no doubt be coming soon in a detailed developer blog.

Actors that will be playing roles in this year’s MyCAREER include Anthony Mackie, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Rapaport, Aldis Hodge, Rob Huebel, Blake Jenner, Ricky Whittle, Mo McRae, and Ginger Gonzaga. Check out the trailer below!

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers will be able to begin playing through the early stages of MyCAREER with this year’s Prelude, which comes out August 31st. What are your thoughts?

  • We have our first NBA 2K19 gameplay trailer, titled “Take the Crown”. Did it wow us the same way the OMG Trailer once did?
