Then there are the reflections on the court itself and this is a place where tried and examined tech wins the afternoon. According to NBA 2K21 MT what I am seeing, I believe the sport utilizes planar reflections as opposed to ray-traced or SSR reflections. Planar reflections are still helpful when applied to a single plane like the courtroom but they're not as elastic in a more intricate game universe. The quality and resolution of the reflection appear improved on next-gen versus last. It's even more persuasive and thoroughly realistic. The character of planar reflections also means that objects could be perfectly duplicated and reflections can seep with no issue. The backboard additionally receives mirror-like reflections which reveal the hoop itself as well as the ball while the internet receives fine physics as you jam the ball in. None of these features are new to the next-gen variant but everything feels more refined overall.Talking of refinement, the updated variant of 2K21 receives some serious improvement to the user experience too. First, the entire UI has been completely overhauled - it's unique to this next-gen edition. The speed of the storage enables a more lively team selection screen as well since it is possible to quickly load in new personality models. It's a big upgrade, improved still further by immense improvements in loading, which essentially eliminates all loading screens.
While there is even more concerning NBA 2K21 to discover, I feel that this is a fantastic primer on what you may expect from the new version of the sport, but I guess the remaining question here comes down to how this name is delivered on all the next-gen systems. The good thing is they're virtually identical visually. PS5 and Series X both offer a whole native 4K demonstration - it looks super crisp on both the systems and all visuals appear the same between these. The PS4 Pro version that I used for last-gen testing, by the way, also appears to run at native 4K but obviously using decreased visual fidelity. The 1 difference here, predictably, is based with the Series S version. This one runs in a native 1080p instead. You get all the same next-gen visuals because it's bigger brother, only at a lower resolution.
I would say that NBA 2K21 is a really good release for all consoles and far more impressive than I anticipated. While the limitations in the cartoon are still evident at points, it is the most fluid and realistic-looking basketball game I have ever seen. Visual Concepts has established a high bar here when it comes to visual quality and this is only the start, really. Additionally, it is nice to see that this version is totally different from the last-gen iteration, suggesting they are building from a new starting point. I hope we'll continue to Buy MT 2K21 find things improve over time and I'll be interested to see how other businesses like EA Sports manage the transition. FIFA 21 has only received its next-gen upgrade (containing Frostbite's much-vaunted hair physics, no less) and we are going to be having a look at this soon. The major problems that were holding The City back seem to have been addressed. The framerates have improved and contact dunks are nerfed. One of the main areas in need of attention is that the MyNBA style.2K blew franchise mode fans' minds with the concepts and reach of this revamped MyLeague feature.
