2K Sports has finally revealed some actual NBA 2K21 next-gen gameplay footage.
As you can see from the brand new NBA 2K21 trailer below, the stunning work-in-progress build has been captured on a PlayStation 5 console.
The trailer begins by giving fans an up-close look at the new and improved character models, including Portland’s star point guard Damian Lillard.
We then get a look at the match day presentation, including the crowds and pre-match warm-ups.
Right then the trailer cuts to the good stuff, as actual gameplay footage is shown on the court itself.
There’s even a demonstration of the next-gen lighting techniques, as the court is shown from above.
The trailer ends with a dramatic moment that could be taken from a real-life NBA game.
“Captured on PlayStation 5, NBA 2K21 is built from the ground up to reach new heights in graphical presentation and take full advantage of next-gen power, speed and technology,” reads the official description.
