A Breakthrough In The NBA 2K SeriesNBA 2K20
is a basketball simulation video game based on the National Basketball Association games. It is the 21st installment in the highly popular NBA 2K franchise and the successor to NBA 2K19. Just like the previous games in the series, you mainly play NBA games with real-life or customized players and teams, and the games follow the rules and objectives of NBA games. This time in 2K20, a new feature called MyCAREER lets you live a cinematic player campaign.
Jumpstart Your Career
If you want to break the monotony of playing, NBA 2K20 features a single-player drama storyline within the game called MyCAREER. With an elite cast of characters such as Idris Elba, Rosario Dawson, and popular NBA All-Stars, your journey to stardom with this plot will give more meaning and motivation to your games as you compete to be the top dog on the court. This also gives special attention to your customized MyPLAYER, as paying attention to the stats and upgrades you equip will affect your progress in the story.
Your MyPLAYER character gets a boost in NBA 2K20, as the game is upgraded with signature player styles, advanced shooting controls, a new dribble size-up system, refined off-ball collisions, and a new read-and-react defensive game style. Customizing your MyPLAYER gets even more in-depth with skill badges and builds that you can tweak for every breakthrough you achieve while using your character. 2K20 also brings back the feature to be able to develop teams and individual players alike with new skill trees, a revamped relationship system, and tons of other cool new upgrades in MyLEAGUE.
Ladies in the House
To shake things up, NBA 2K20 now features the Women’s National Basketball Association in its roster for the first time in the series. 12 WNBA teams and over 140 WNBA players are available in the Play Now and Season modes—and they all contain exclusive gameplay animations, play styles, and visuals. Not to mention that over 10 new legendary teams from the past decades of NBA will now join the 100 or so total of legendary teams you can choose from.
The Right Beats
The game also comes alive with the audio broadcasts and soundtrack you’ll be hearing. With over 60,000 new lines of dialogue, all-new studio shows and game intros, MyPLAYER interviews, records and milestone coverage, over 2,000 arena specific crowd reactions and sounds, and a diverse list of top songs from various artists, no moment will be boring for you while you play.
Setting the Standard
For the 21st title in its franchise, NBA 2K20 definitely sets the bar high for its own successors. The inclusion of the WNBA is a big step in the right direction for all fans of the series and basketball itself and will give you new challenges to try out. Whether you’re a new fan or an old-timer, this is an NBA title you should check out at least once.
