NBA 2KVR Experience
Sports 22 November 2016
A collection of arcade basketball minigames developed with VR headsets in mind. In NBA 2KVR Experience, the player assumes the role of a basketball player who trains under the supervision of Paul George, an All-Star player. Observing the virtual world from the eyes of the protagonist, we take part in several competitions. These are: Three-Point Shootout, in which we have to take as many three-point shots as possible before time runs out, Time Attack that has us score the largest number of goals within a minute, Skills Challenge, forcing the player to bounce the ball off targets to eventually make an accurate shot, and lastly, Buzzer Beater which requires us to make as many accurate shots as possible in a given time while having only 10 balls. The task can be made easier with special power-ups, letting us boost our accuracy, speed, and condition. NBA 2KVR Experience requires both a VR headset and dedicated controllers that transfer our hands’ movement into the game world.
