NBA 2K gameplay director Mike Wang released a bevy of new information about the innovation and inspiration used to bring this year’s gameplay where they aim to take it to the next level:

  • Major changes to the Pro Stick to allow for new dribbling mechanics
  • Shot meter changes from a timing bar to a targeting system
  • New shot types, new signature defensive motion styles, stronger presence from bigs in the paint and more
  • Players will now be able to make oversized point guards (6’8)

Additionally, players will be able to give the game a try as a demo will be available for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on August 24th.
