Graphics and Visuals
The first thing you’ll notice about NBA 2K22 is the noticeable upgrade in graphics and visuals. Thanks to the power of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, NBA 2K22 will be the best-looking game in the series yet.
Player faces have been completely redone and look more lifelike than ever before. In addition, player hairstyles and tattoos have been updated to reflect current trends. And thanks to next-gen lighting technology, players will cast realistic shadows on the court.
The arenas have also been given a next-gen makeover. From the hardwood floors to the ceiling rafters, every detail has been meticulously recreated to look as realistic as possible. And with dynamic lighting and weather effects, no two games will look alike.
In addition to upgraded graphics and visuals,NBA 2K22 will also feature improved gameplay mechanics thanks to the power of next-gen consoles. Players will now move more realistically thanks to motion capture technology that captures real-life movement. This means players will no longer move like robots on the court; they’ll move like real basketball players.
In addition, player collision physics have been completely revamped. This means that players will no longer phase through each other when they collide; they’ll bounce off each other just like they would in a real game of basketball. This gives players more control over their movements on the court and results in a more realistic gameplay experience overall.
New Modes and Features
In addition to upgraded graphics, visuals, and gameplay mechanics, NBA 2K22 will also feature several new modes and features that are sure to please fans of the series.
MyTEAM mode is back and better than ever before with new cards, packs, rewards, modes, challenges, and events for players to enjoy. In addition, for the first time ever in MyTEAM mode, players will be able to acquire certain cards by completing certain in-game challenges instead of just purchasing them outright with virtual currency
