Although a few weeks back we were treated to a next-gen teaser trailer to NBA 2K14, today we were given the real thing and it’s incredibly impressive.
While a handful of next-gen titles for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 have left us less than thrilled, at least graphically *cough*MADDEN*cough*, NBA 2K14 does not as the players not only look incredibly lifelike in appearance, but also in moves.
In the trailer below, which is all completely game footage (no rendering here), you see the up close details of the players – even down to the stray hairs of James Harden‘s beard. As if that isn’t enough, many of the players’ patented dunks or shot styles are included in the game, which while not exactly new really takes on a new life in the next generation.
Keep in mind – this is just the first go-around for 2K as well. As we saw with the current generation, the graphics continued to improve over time so I’d expect 2K15 and 2K16 to be insane.
I admit I wasn’t completely sold on the first trailer we saw from 2K nor the stand alone images, but after seeing it all flow together, they did a fantastic job.
The Xbox One and Playstation 4 version of NBA 2K14 releases on November 15th.
