The good news is that this week’s NBA 2K21 release date (demo) has been confirmed for all of the latest generation consoles.
This will give players their first experience of the new NBA 2K experience, although it will have its drawbacks.
On the one hand, it will only offer part of the game options that will be available in the full game, on the other hand it will only present the current version of the game.
So there’s a chance that a second NBA 2K21 demo will be released for PS5 and Xbox Series X later in the year.
For now, we only know when the NBA 2K21 demo will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
WHEN will the NBA 2K21 demo come out?
The release date of the NBA 2K21 demo has been set for Monday, August 24, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The official release time for NBA 2K21 is yet to be announced, but we have a rough idea of when things might start happening.
According to online reports, NBA 2K21’s release time has been set for 5:00 BST, or midnight ET, if you live in the United States.
It seems likely that the demo will be released simultaneously on PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop and Xbox Store, but to be sure it will also be worth checking out the different digital stores.
From what has been shared so far, players will not need to pre-order the full game to access this new demo.
A message from 2K explains: “You’ll have a chance to see how the game works when we launch the NBA 2K21 demo on August 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!
“Last year we introduced the signature dribbling styles, which gave Magic Johnson his signature step forward, Steve Nash’s finger licking and more.
“This update has now come to the defensive end with distinctive defensive movement styles. Here is the list of players with whom you can shape your player’s movement: Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Pat Beverley, Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green.
“In addition to this, the movement has undergone various refinements, both on and off the ball, to provide a more consistent and responsive feel on sticks.”
It should be noted that the NBA 2K20 demo was released around 8:00 am Pacific Time in 2019 on all platforms.
2K has yet to confirm the list of activities that will be available in the new NBA 2K20 demo or whether there will be early access to MyCAREER mode.
Last year’s demo made it possible for any progress made while playing the NBA 2K20 demo to revert to the full version when it launched in September.
A few years ago, 2K released its latest NBA game with the name “Prelude” attached, as it also provided a first look at the Career Story mode.
This year’s demo doesn’t have that title, which means we probably won’t be looking at the narratives you’re working on in the same way.
2K has been busy talking about the new MyTEAM experience coming with the full game, revealing earlier this month:
“For those of you kicking off your MyTEAM NBA 2K21 experience with the PS4 / Xbox One version on September 4th, I am pleased to confirm that the entire collection AND progress will continue once you start playing the version. next-generation game.
“This means that you will have access to all of your drawn and won cards (and any associated evolutionary progress), your progress in Domination, Triple Threat, etc. And all your VC, MyTEAM Points and Token balance.
“The only caveat is that it only works between matching generations on the same account. Specifically, it works PS4 to PS5. Xbox One to Xbox Series X works. They also work PS5 to PS4 and Xbox Series X to Xbox One. PS4 to Xbox Series X and Xbox One to PS5 don’t work. Having the game on PS4 or Xbox One in one account and using a different account for PS5 or Xbox Series X doesn’t work either. Very clear. ”
