The first trailer for NBA 2K18 is here, and boy does the upcoming basketball simulator look good.
Dubbed “The Art Behind NBA 2K18”, the trailet delves into the major updates to the game for the latest iteration, including changes to the appearance of uniforms and the players themselves.
The developers utilized brand new processes – including new photo techniques and laser scanning – to ensure even the smallest of details were captured to create a hyper-realistic experience. These upgrades include:
- Photo Techniques: The developers used new photo techniques with the ability to separate colors for more accurate player skin tones that react to light in true-to-life form.
- Uniforms: The team visited the NBA New York offices to laser scan each and every new Nike uniform and over 200 pairs of shoes to capture each detail, down to the stitches.
- MyPLAYER: The customization is like never before, with almost an unlimited amount of body types available and options to adjust and scale nearly every aspect of the athletes in game.
2K will also be releasing “The Prelude” on September 8th, 2017, a free downloadable experience that begins your MyCAREER on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Players can kick-off their NBA 2K18 experience prior to the game’s launch and continue where they left off when the game officially releases one week later.
NBA 2K18 launches on September 15th, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
