The NBA won’t resume until October 18, but orange ball fans will have nothing to worry about by then. NBA 2K23, the new annual edition of the #1 basketball sim published by 2K Games, really hits all the media this Friday. For this 24th opus, which features Michael Jordan on the cover for some special editions and Devin Booker for the standard edition, the basics remain the same, but the gameplay has been improved, especially in attack.
In this new episode, the developers have focused on dunks and racket penetrations, which should be much more: from now on, it will be possible to choose between two-handed dunking and stay on the hook at the basket. … Shooting animations in the past were also more numerous, and now you can choose the scale you want to use to trigger the shot at the best time.
Dribblers get hurt
While the dribblers have often dominated NBA 2K, they should have a lot more trouble in this new episode. The ball carrier will now only have three Adrenaline Boosts per ball possession which they can use to increase their speed while risking exhaustion at the end of the action. Finally, in a one-on-one case, the attacker will have a choice between three zones, but if he attacks the one where the defender is, he will instantly lose the ball.
In terms of game modes, the MyTEAM mode has been extensively overhauled, with the removal of contracts on its player cards, something players have been requesting for a long time. The Jordan Challenge, which lets you relive some of the greatest moments of Michael Jordan’s career with a controller in hand, is also back in a much-anticipated time.
