For the last few weeks, we have covered 2K Games announcements about the next-gen version of NBA 2K 21. Last week’s announcement was about players’ movement and the new features specific to the PlayStation 5 version of the game. This week, we will explore new aspects of the next-gen gameplay.
This week’s NBA 2K21 Next-Gen Gameplay Courtside Report focuses on MyPlayer mode and AI improvements. MyPlayer builder on next-gen will allow you to change each of your avatar’s stats instead of choosing from preset skills. The badges system has been changed to consider the users’ feedback. The development team removed some of the existing badges, added new ones, and changed others. The new badges system will generally have a better implementation of the next-gen consoles.
The takeover ability has also been revamped for the next-gen version of the game. There are now 24 takeover abilities in the game instead of eight on current-generation platforms. Besides, the takeover is now a multi-tier system; you now can choose a primary and secondary takeover ability when creating your MyPlayer. You can choose the same ability twice or two different ones according to your style. Charging both slots will take more time but will have a more devastating effect especially if you fill the team takeover meter.
Concerning the AI both defense and offense will be improved on next-gen. Defense’s AI will benefit from a new switching logic, the AI will call for a switch less often without a screen. The Adaptive Coaching Engine will be more efficient and AI-controlled defenders will have a better positioning. Holding L1/LB will allow you to call for help when defending. The next-gen version of the game will also improve the pathing of the defenders who will now avoid each other better when moving around obstacles.
The new offense AI will add new features to the game; such as game planning that will allow the AI to assist the best players of your team in a specific way. The next-gen will also fix AI issues, like players positioning themselves out of bounds, and improve the CPU controlled players overall logic.MTStacks will help you in your quest to build the best team with the best price of NBA 2K21 MT coins.
