NBA 2K21 Courtside Report Details Gameplay Updates

NBA 2K21 Gameplay Update

In a post called a “Courtside Report” on the game’s official website, NBA 2K21 developers detailed the changes and refinements to the gameplay for this year’s iteration.

One big change to the game for NBA 2K21 comes via a suggestion from the cover athlete himself. At Damian Lillard’s request, players can choose to be a point guard up to six-feet, eight-inches. Previously, guards could reach a maximum height of six-feet, six-inches, and being a taller point guard came at the expense of certain skills. Now, you are free to become the next Penny Hardaway.

NBA 2K21 will also bring major changes to the Pro Stick. Holding the Pro Stick in any direction would start a jump shot in previous versions of the game, but in 2K21, players will have to hold the stick down to take a shot. That’s because dribble moves are expanded in the new iteration of the NBA 2K. Now, you’ll be able to use the Pro Stick to perform different dribble moves as follows:

  • Hold RS down = jump shot
  • Hold RS left or right = escape dribble moves
  • Hold RS up = signature size-ups
  • Tap the RS = quick 1-to-1 dribble moves
  • Tap the RS with Sprint held = quick momentum dribble moves

As we saw in the trailer, the shot meter also underwent a major overhaul. You can view the full breakdown of the gameplay changes in the Courtside Report.

NBA 2K21 is set to launch Sept. 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia. A demo will be available Aug. 24 for PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
