Recently, Summer Olympics in Rio was held. Meanwhile, latest trailer for NBA2K17 and two of the United States’ Olympic squads was appeared. 2K has released it, we can concerned about more news update.
Paul George, who broke his leg playing for the US national team in 2014 (albeit at the FIBA World Cup, not the Olympics), is this year’s cover star. There’s also a more expensive Legend edition of the game that features the now-retired Kobe Bryant on its cover and comes with various bonuses.
We don’t get to see any real basketball action in the video. Instead, it focuses on the pre-game national anthem and some player-specific celebrations. Most importantly, it teases the potential dream matchup that NBA 2K17 makes possible, where you could play a game between the 1992 Dream Team and this year’s US men’s national team.
The latter, being comprised entirely of current-day NBA stars, is included in the game alongside head coach Mike Krzyzewski. But it also features the complete Dream Team–in addition to Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird, all of whom we’ve seen before, this marks the first time Charles Barkley has been in a 2K game. However, you’ll need to preorder the game in order to have access to the team.
In another first, 2K17 includes the Australian Boomers as a playable team in the game.
NBA 2K17 will be launched on September 20, if you want to pre-order it, you can buy it four days early.
