NBA 2K21 Next-Gen Trailer And Screens Show Off Balling On PS5 And Xbox Series X

We’ve finally had our first look at NBA 2K21 on PS5 and Xbox Series X. A first-look trailer has shown off the visual and environmental improvements introduced for the next-gen version, including updated player models and various new court details. The trailer, captured on a PS5, shows of both of these improvements before and during a game.

Prior to this we’d seen just a tiny snippet of the PS5 version; this is much more extensive, offering some gameplay segments in a game between the Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors. One of the standout elements, aside from the impressive lifelike look of the individual players, is how crowded the court and crowd appear, particularly during the pregame segment.

In the next-gen version, every single person on screen in the lower court
