NBA 2K21 Current Gen Gameplay trailer and screenshots

Postby TGsoGood on Fri Aug 07, 2020 12:14 am

I expected some information to come today because 2K's marketing does Thursday info releases alot.

Today we received the Current Gen trailer for NBA 2K21. This includes gameplay and some very interesting tidbits which hint at college, different places around the world and a new neighborhood.

It should also be noted that 2k released the system requirements on Steam for the 2k21 PC version. They appear to be identical to last year's version.

No surprises that the system requirements are the same. I expect we'll be able to do some great things modding NBA 2K21 PC.

I'm also not surprised that the gameplay looks pretty much the same as what we're accustomed to. I wasn't expecting a huge leap in graphics or animations, so I don't feel let down. The new shot meter is obviously a point of interest. I hope that shooting mechanics are solid this year, both in concept and execution. Based on the blown-up version I saw on Twitter, it has a good chance of working out well.

It seems that previous leaks referring to college teams being in the game were accurate, at least in some way. It remains to be seen if they'll be playable outside of MyCAREER as those earlier leaks suggested, but if nothing else, it appears that there'll once again be a college portion of MyCAREER.

Digressing for a moment, I'd actually prefer the entire Prelude/story aspect of MyCAREER to take place in college, with little or no story-driven elements once you make it to the NBA. I'd prefer a very short story all things considered, and less of a penalty for skipping the story, but I'm not optimistic about that.

Having a new Neighborhood is probably going to be a hit, though the concept in general still presents problems that a new layout and other such bells and whistles won't really fix. After NBA 2K20 let a lot of people down in that regard - especially after Ronnie mocked people for their complaints during last year's preview season, only for those complaints to turn out to be quite accurate - it's a good move. However, if there's more flash than substance, the novelty will wear off quickly, and I think a lot of people will remember those issues with The Neighborhood that have nothing to do with what it looks like.

It'll be interesting to see if spotlighting those international players amounts to any kind of additional content, or if it's just making the point that basketball is a global game and through NBA 2K it goes on, even as circumstances are different in the real world. Either way, it's certainly attention-grabbing.

In my opinion, 2K21 on PC will be the equivalent of 2K14: largely ignored my most gamers, but a mod haven. What tools we have now (like Looyh's) will be outdated, and that can only be good.

Thankfully, it seems like there will be a large overlap b/w this year's file system and 2K21, so a large amount of mods can be available at launch, maybe with just a few modifications.

I'd say that's definitely an apt comparison.

Everything the same. The same players sliding and unrealistic basket net that hasn't changed in 20 years. Shit.

on current gen, i dont expect anything new.
if they outsourced the game, it will be basically a roster update and minor graphic update (jerseys, courts, menu).

Finally someone who observed it and is mentioning it. Can't believe everyone is only complaining bout the new shot meter in that first Dame step back gameplay clip and (as ugly as it is) not how his release looks ridiculously high and nothing like his real life shot. According to the trailer, among all other non-changed stuff in this game, the shooting, dribbling and Signature Styles in general, which have always been my main praise for 2K for the long term, 2K20 claimed the No.1 spot for making animations so much worse than before and 2K21 current gen is continuing that exact path.

I have been playing and editing players jumpshots, dribblings n signature styles on EVERY 2K since 2K9 on PC, and on every single 2K my goal was just to create an own roster with edited players animations as realistic as they can be, (especially jumpers) dependend on the existing animations that r given in the game. U wouldn't believe me how many days of editing players and their animations I spent on every single 2K. I swear to u I'm not lying saying that I know every j/base/release animation from every single 2K since 2K9 and that's why know exactly when 2K changed, cut out or even swapped previous really good signature animations to random ones they have in their collection, calling it then a new signature which looks completely unrealistic though (one of the recent ones is Melo for ex with 2K19 and 20). Disgusting how his shot looks now compared to earlier 2Ks when everyone's reminded rn by him ballin with dame and the blazers fighting for a playoff spot and how his shooting form for a fact is one of the most beautiful the NBA has ever seen.

Thats a whole decade back and some Js from these older 2Ks look still more realistic than 2K20/21 because not only 2K didn't give us so few of the improvements we've been asking for all those years, nah they even made the newer games worse than before. As much joy I had with our current gen 2Ks, as much anger has built up over time, if not more. 2K always haven't had many Jumpers with a low release point in general but at least a few and now it's not only that 2K cut out most of these /their best bases n releases to edit and create realistic jumpshots, NO most of the fucking NEW added Signature Jumper from the recent years look so unrealistic, exactly the opposite as it used to be back in the days. In 2K20 they really put the cherry on the cake by switching like TRIIIAD mentioned above the releases and the follow through in general to MUCH HIGHER! than it used to be in 2K19< which looks just fuckin off and completely kills the realism of Js from so many NBA players, like for ex Dame, Steph, Trae young, Harden, etc.etc...

This years Cover Athlet Dame's J n release is best example (, watch this vid if ur not familiar with his J in real life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vxae3WvYJXk) and then watch the opening of the trailer again where he shoots his signature step back and realize how fuckin bad and unrealistic it looks, that's just a joke knowing it's their COVER ATHLETE, whose rls they just changed last year with 2K20 but is just looks fucking disgustin.
His shot and release looks higher than Kevin Garnetts and due to the animations existing in the game only to a certain amount fixable with a lot of tweaking.
This game could look SO MUCH MORE realistic if they just brought back older signatures they previously cut out or actually added GOOD and REALISTIC ones like they used to back in the days and not only add like 10 new, cut out 5 and add almost the same lower base 5 like times which is how it was kinda like for the past years.

To be honest, this + while doing dribbling moves the ball is constantly going THROUGH the players legs, feet and knees (slow the trailer to 0.25x and watch the very first dribble Dame takes and how it still goes through his leg for ex) which wasn't like this in 2K19< and makes the dribbling look SO MUCH worse, the general "delayed" feeling of movement in 2K20 made me deinstall it after a few month after realizing that they will not fix or tweak any of this with further patches.
The first 2K I bought and ever then deinstalled. And not regretting it. This delayed feeling I'm talking about, I still remember starting 2K20 for first time and immediatley thinking it feels so slow and delayed to how 2K19 felt, thought it was some (graphics) settings option but that's just how the game is, sadly.
Start any other 2K from our Current gen and u directly realize that it feels so much more responsive. Nothing u can change bout that in 2K20. Worst feeling and first impression of any 2K I played and I would be SO SURPRISED if 2K21 will be any different after watching this trailer. Sadly these gameplay "things" can not be tweaked,changed or fixed by our amazing modders in the community :cry:

I'm 99% sure 2K21 will be the first 2K I'm not buying and, praying some cloud gaming services like stadia etc will get the next gen version in their collection soon to achieve max possible NBA realism on the PC, seems to be last option for us PC players I guess. (Or keep hoping EA Sports transforms to old glory form and gives us PC players NBA Live 21 as well. Oh wait, for a sec I forgot there willl be no Live 21 releasing... )

2020 and 2k still can't make a proper basketball ball (yes is my pet peeve). Anyway since Lillard on this trailer is in DAME 5 not 6 and scorebug is excatly same like in 2k20 I'm really doubt this trailer was made in 2k21. IMHO 2k should go in the same way as Konami with PES 2021 and release 2k21 for PC and Current gen as a season update not a "new" game.

I can think of absolutely no reason to buy 2k21 on PC. Everything they showcased is done better with mods. Shoes mods have hundreds of options beyond what 2k showcased here. The bubble mods are more realistic than what 2k is presenting. Assuming cyberfaces can be ported from 2k21 to 2k20 so missing players and rookies can be added, 2k21 on pc is DOA. Honestly, this is a money hungry grab to cash in on last-gen one last time.

Fuck this company, for real.

They do the same shit they did in 2k14 when the PS4 and Xbox 1 were released and all we PC gamers got was half assed NBA2K13 with Euroleague.


Im done with this.

My only complain about their yearly release is the rapid increase of total size from being 7GB game to whooping 100GB thanks to demand of 4K textures that everyone wants but I hardly used it at all. Wish there's a mod that removes Ultra and High textures as I only stick to Medium texture since 2K15.

File size has become an issue with the new call of duty games and I'm sure many AAA games. It takes up like a 150-200 GB footprint with every update a 30-40 GB download. Luckily they heard the complaints about this and have retooled the new updates to remove stuff and reduce the overall footprint on the hard drive. It is ridiculous though, do they expect us to have only 1 game installed on the console? This is going to be a problem as more people go all digital in PS5, and companies continue to push digital versions of games

It's definitely getting harder for those of us who like to have a big chunk of our collection installed at any given time.

Microsoft and Sony really need to step up their content delivery game - after all PC has been receiving same patches, but often being like 300 MB large.

As far as game sizes go, there will be likely some compartmentalization in the future where it makes sense, but I'm not sure how much sense it would make for NBA 2K. CoD could split their game in to SP, MP and BR, which they did before, but NBA is harder in that regard that you have tons of shared assets across all the game modes.
And the biggest stuff is gonna be textures and sounds.

The presentation elements alone - the player interviews and such - definitely pad out the size.
