NBA 2K21 next-gen gameplay shown off in new trailer

NBA 2K21 next-gen gameplay has been shown off in a new trailer that frankly makes it look like you’re watching a real-life ball game.

2K and Visual Concepts also made an image gallery available, with its lead photo a direct comparison of Zion Williamson as in NBA 2K20 on PS4 and NBA 2K21 on PS5. It’s below, alongside the trailer itself.

NBA 2K21 drew ire by being the first next-gen title to announce a $10 USD/AUD price increase, but the visuals above and below may help to justify that — what do you think? Those who’ve purchased the game’s Mamba Forever edition receive a current- to next-gen upgrade as part of that initial price.

NBA 2K21 is already available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch and Stadia. It heads to Xbox Series S and X on 10 November, followed on PS5 from 12 November.
