The release date for NBA 2K15 is now just a couple of months away (October 10th). I haven’t really given the 2014/15 season NBA 2K game much coverage yet, so here’s the official NBA 2K15 cover, and a still from the official 2K15 launch video.
As we can see; Kevin Durant is the cover star, the number of Euroleague teams has been increased to 25 (up from 14 – see screenshot below for a full list) with the in-game music now chosen by Pharrell Williams.
This screenshot provides us with a bit more information, as well as the game release date it features the hashtag (#YourTimeHasCome), as well as information on the “Kevin Durant MVP” pre-order bonus pack (not available on Playstation Store, we’re told), comprising of 5K VC, “My TEAM” (or “MyTEAM”, depending on which paragraph you believe) card packs and some exclusive MyPlayer leg sleeves (!?!).
The choice of an international My TEAM player certainly seems to reflect the global appeal of NBA (2K), with prominent international NBA players chosen to represent their respective countries. Perhaps this is an indication that 2K have incorporated some international features into the game? A My Team international multiplayer mode? The chance to represent your country while player My Player perhaps? (or maybe I’m reading too much into a marketing ploy).
I’ll post more news as I get it, in the meantime I’ll be posting a retrospective look at NBA 2K14 (both versions; current and next gen), as well as some hopes for the 10th October release in the coming days.
