With eight days left until NBA 2K19: The Prelude comes out, 2K Sports released a gameplay video of the upcoming video game. Gamers can see what NBA 2K19 will look like as the game developer released the footage from a few different matches played in the upcoming video game.
2K Sports has also introduced Bill Simmons to the in-game broadcasting team, making the game commentary even better than the last year. Additionally, NBA legends Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett have joined this year’s broadcast booth, and we can expect to hear their commentary in NBA 2K19.
Judging from the gameplay footage, we can see a few improvements in the upcoming game. There is also a new user interface and the game feels more fluid in general. However, there are no game-changing features, it seems, or they simply cannot be seen in the video released by 2K Sports.
Fortunately, another gameplay video showed us more details as USGamer released a 17-minute gameplay video between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. This video shows us the pre-game presentation, two quarters of basketball, and a halftime show.
Pre-game introductions are almost identical to NBA 2K18, and gameplay doesn’t have too many changes. While it does look nice and smooth, it is almost the same gameplay we have seen from the previous games in this franchise. Additionally, it seems that the game will keep some smaller issues it had before, such as incorrect counting of a 3-second violation.
Players will once again have Earnie Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kenny “The Jet” Smith for a halftime show.
The game will be released on September 11 and those who preorder it will be able to play it four days earlier. The demo comes out on August 31, and while the videos above don’t look promising, we have to keep in mind that this may not be the footage of the final product.
