NBA 2K21 current-gen demo available now

An NBA 2K21 current-gen demo is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and Switch, 2K and Visual Concepts today announced.

The demo is available on all four platforms and includes four playable teams:

  • Kobe Bryant and the All-Time Lakers
  • Bill Russell and the All-Time Celtics
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks
  • Kawhi Leonard and Los Angeles Clippers

The demo also offers enhancements to Pro Stick controls, the MyPlayer builder and more.

2K also used the demo’s announcement to detail changes to its player ratings reveal.

“This year, NBA 2K will update player ratings upon the release of NBA 2K21 for next-generation consoles, following the completion of the 2019-20 NBA season, to ensure the ratings are reflective of the player’s performance this season,” 2K advised. “At that time, all updated NBA player ratings will be implemented across NBA 2K21 for current- and next-gen consoles.”

Expect NBA 2K21 from 4 September on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch. A next-gen version follows in November, but it’ll cost you.
