NBA 2K20: New Features, Player Ratings, Review
MT Coins Sports have all but killed off their rival NBA Live, and now NBA 2K20 has finally arrived. You can read our review of the basketball sim here.
EA Sports kicked off sports season with Madden 20 and they are ramping up the hype for FIFA 20.They have some competition though. Japanese rivals Konami are creating the biggest Pro Evolution Soccer release in years with PES 2020 by locking up exclusive rights to Juventus.
And now 2K are getting in on the act. They gave us a first hint at WWE 2K20 last month, but the real hype has been around the next installment in their excellent NBA franchise. NBA 2K19 was praised as a high point of the series but still had some nagging issues. So what will NBA 2K20 bring to hoops fans everywhere?Cover athlete Anthony Davis, who recently made a blockbuster move to join LeBron James at the LA Lakers, will front this years game. Or at least part of it. He will be on the Standard and Digital Deluxe Editions, but someone else will be on the Legends Edition.
Miami Heat icon Dwyane Wade, who retired at the end of the 2018-19 season, will grace the front of 7the Legends Edition this year.
2K often play their cards very close to their chest, and we had only seen a brief teaser of the game until this Next Is Now trailer dropped. There is a lot of emphasis on new faces and the recent flurry of players moving around the NBA.
Unsurprisingly, cover star Anthony Davis and new Lakers’ teammate LeBron James are the first to be seen, with the Clippers All-Star pairing of Paul George & Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, Nets Kyrie Irving & Kevin Durant, Golden State’s ‘Splash Brothers’ Steph Curry & Klay Thompson and Rockets point machine James Harden & Russell Westbrook all featuring heavily.You do get a little taste of gameplay from the “Next Is Now” trailer, including new animations of players like Jimmy Butler, Kyrie Irving, and Buddy Hield.
2K have touched up their player motion engine and improved player footwork by adding smarter foot-planting allowing for more explosive movement from a stationary position.2K’s tight-lipped strategy over this year’s release means we don’t know a whole lot about it just yet. We know that Ronnie 2K will be making an appearance in cut scenes in MyCareer while some improvements to the off-ball system are coming. There will be the usual step up in graphics too but we expect tweaks to the AI behavior to come this year too.www.nbamtcoin.com
