Regardless of cover star, NBA 2K24 will introduce players to a range of new and returning features, with the spotlight firmly on the best moments of Kobe Bryant’s career, and on that all-important ‘authenticity’.
As detailed by 2K Games, players ‘will be able to channel their inner-Mambamentality’ with the game’s new ‘Mamba Moments’ mode. This will spotlight moments from Bryant’s career through a number of years, as it traces his origins from ‘a young phenom to one of the greatest players of all time’.
NBA 2K24 will also introduce a new ‘ProPLAY’ feature, which will translate NBA footage in real-time gameplay for more ‘authentic’ movements. More details are on the way for this mode, so stay tuned to learn about its functionality, and how it’ll shake up gameplay.
