NBA 2K20 is the next installment of the hit series of sports games focusing on basketball. Just like all other installments, the title was developed by Visual Concepts.

Mechanics

The game is based on realism. NBA 2K20 offers powerful gameplay mechanics that faithfully reproduces both the player behavior and typical match play. The devs have obtained all the necessary licenses, including players, teams, and pitches. This applies not only to the eponymous NBA league but also, for the first time in the history of the series, to the women's WNBA.

Adding female basketball players, teams and leagues is the biggest change, but not the only one. The devs have also improved the visuals, controls, and the ball's behavior on the pitch. AI has also been modernized.

Game modes

NBA 2K20 can be played solo or with others in local mode or over the Internet.

The MyCareer and MyTeam modes, which were known from previous installments of the game, are back. In the first one we create our own player, and then lead them through the subsequent stages of a professional basketball player's career. In MyTeam, we collect cards of athletes and exchange them with other players to create our own dream team.

An additional attraction is a story campaign for a manager and the NBA Blacktop mode, which focuses on street basketball.

Technical aspects

NBA 2K20 boasts very attractive visuals. The devs meticulously depicted the appearance of the players, their costumes and pitches, and the additional charm of the visual setting is added by realistic animations.
