NBA 2K21 Next-Gen Gameplay Trailer Brings All The Sweat

NBA 2K21 next-gen gameplay is here and you know that means even more sweat. Plus, a Mark Cuban sighting and even some in-game action.

NBA 2K21 is out now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. But who cares about that? It’s time for next-gen, baby! Today, the team at 2K Sports dropped the first gameplay trailer for next-gen consoles, and let me assure you, there’s a ton of sweat. You have never seen a sweatier virtual Steph Curry in your life. Plus, they, for some reason animated a Mark Cuban. Are the rest of the owners animated or just him? Oh, and there’s some fun cinematic action going on. Check it out below.

Now, obviously, we’ll have to wait to see the same fully in action. These are cinematic shots of gameplay with no HUD. However, some of this looks pretty dope. As expected the sweat tech is on another level. The reflections on the court are also pretty slick. However, some of the animations still look a little jerky. That said, at other times it looks completely smooth and lifelike, so that side of things is a bit of a mixed back.

On the whole, though, it looks great. Sports games and racers always serve as showpieces for next-gen hardware and NBA 2K21 looks to continue that trend. Hopefully, it plays as well as it looks. And maybe the next-gen version won’t have as many scummy microtransactions. A man can dream!

NBA 2K21 comes to Xbox Series X on November 10. It will launch on PS5 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea on November 12 and everywhere else on November 19. And, of course, it’s available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
