Newest updates! 2K Games yesterday released a first teaser trailer for his long-awaited NBA 2K17, the next game of his famous series of the great basketball simulation. And this trailer focuses on the Men’s National Team in Rio for the Olympics and the Dream Team from the 1992 Games in Barcelona.
Here are some trailer screenshots:
Aside from the gifted young lady singing the National Anthem, here’s the three things that stood out most to me.
Updated Facial Renders
Robinson, Ewing and Carmelo Anthony all have more accurate facial renders.
They weren’t grotesque in NBA 2K16, but it’s always nice when a sports game makes visual improvements on this generation of consoles.
Photo-Realistic Coach Renders
Mike Krzyzewski has what might be the most accurate render any coach has had in the NBA 2K series. We know he was captured with the full photo rig, but we don’t know if the coaches in the league were. Hopefully, we’ll see photo-realistic versions of the NBA’s 30 current head coaches.
New Body Types
Expanding the amount of body types available in the game was probably one of the most requested features from fans after NBA 2K16. Last year, there were about three and not all of them were distributed properly.
In this trailer it appears that Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, David Robinson and Charles Barkley all have distinguishable physical traits that set them apart.
As you can see from the image above, KD is appropriately thin. Perhaps a little less obvious, but cool all the same, is the difference in arm length.
Take a look at how far Charles Barkley’s arms extend when compared to the more lanky Scottie Pippen:
Also, the chiseled David Robinson looks more defined than anyone else in the trailer, most notably his contemporary Patrick Ewing:
Let’s hope fans have access to all of these body types when creating players.
