NBA 2K15 is an upcoming simulation Basketball sport video game that is currently in development by Visual Concepts, the California based 2K subsidiary is primarily responsible for handling 2K Sports line of video games. Set to be published by 2K, NBA 2K15 is set to be the sixteenth game in the series; it will be made available across both current and last generation consoles.
The game will be available on box 360, PlayStation 3, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows when it launches on the October 7th of 2014
Similar to all the previous NBA 2K games, the game will take a more simulation video game approach rather than an arcade styled experience.
Similar to its predecessor, NBA 2K14, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One builds of the game will be running on the Eco-Motion video game engine. This engine focuses on bringing a sense of realism and life to the game, as the developers put it, “really bring players to life in a way that we’ve never done before — to make the game look smarter, feel better, react in a more realistic fashion than it ever has.”
The “Eco” portion of Eco-Engine references the new life breathed into characters by the game, they’ve said that the goal is “making sure that these guys think, that they behave, that they act like they do in real life.”
While not solely responsible for the creation of the games music, the popular music icon Pharrell Williams has “curated” the games soundtrack.
Following a common tradition and trend in sports video games, NBA 2K15 will feature a prominent sportsman from the most recent seasons on the cover of the game. It was announced on May 6th of 2014 Kevin Durant (NBA’s most valuable player of the 2013/2014 season) would be taking centre stage on the case. Box art was officially released on July 15th of 2014.
There is a PC build of the game in development that will be made available on Microsoft Windows, but at this time we don’t know specifically which build of the game will be brought to gamers. It’s either going to be a port of the 7th generation (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) build or a port of the more advanced 8th generation (Xbox One and PlayStation 4) build of the game.
Thus far, it would appear that gameplay remains largely unchanged in NBA 2K15. It’s most likely that any changes to the game will come in the form of tweaks to the gameplay rather than actual mechanic overhauls.
At this time, a team listing hasn’t been revealed. What we do know is that NBA 2K15 will feature 25 Euroleague basketball teams. This is expanding on the NBA 2K14 Euroleague roster which numbered only 14 teams.
