Basketball is one game that is exciting as well as rejuvenating. Be it playing in the open courts with the air smacking your face or those close courts which spectators cheering for your time. How about if we tell you that you can experience the same atmosphere on a screen, that too sitting in the comfort of your cozy environments?
Yes, NBA 2016 is all about that. This game has been developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports. It is the 17th series in the 2K installment and is a much awaited sequel OF 2015.
It was released on September 29, 2015 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. A mobile version for Android and iOS was also released on October 14, 2015. This game is a stimulation of Nation Basketball Association and consists of a sort of identical game play. Players may play regular season NBA games, playoff games, Summer League games, and others.
One interesting thing in the entire concept of the game is that a user can also create his own player and customize a variety of option in it such as attributes, skin set, appearance and other characteristics. The ultimate aim of any use is to make his player become the best basketball player of all times. The players may also create and modify their own teams. The soundtrack was created by DJ Premier, DJ Mustard, and DJ Khaled. It consists of 50 different songs. The soundtrack consists of 6 playlists. The users can either create their own playlist or use the existing ones.
The new version of NBA includes exclusive features such as aesthetical improvements, full body scanning, etc. Players may also purchase a linked app called MyNBA2K16 which gives an option to the player to earn in-game currency among other benefits. Director Spike Lee has put in a lot of effort to make this game as special as possible in all possible respects. NBA 2016 users are offered a host of game modes such as such as MyCareer, MyTeam, and standard games. There are three different covers for the main game, one featuring Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, another featuring Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, and the last featuring James Harden of the Houston Rockets. A special cover featuring Michael Jordan was also released by the developers of the game. In fact, this is the first time where multiple covers of the same game have been released. The last time it was done was when NBA 2012 was released.
Another surprising feature of this game is that in order to make this game look more realistic, a number of players had to get their body scanned unlike the previous versions wherein the player had to get only his face scanned to give the virtual outlook to the game. All in all, the game is considered to give you quite a rational feel of the real NBA series. Once you start playing it, I bet you will be completely engrossed in the vitals of the game.
