DF tested NBA 2K21 on PS5 and Xbox Series โ€” for new consoles the game was made from scratch

Digital Foundry made it to NBA 2K21 for next-generation consoles. This version is notable because it was created from scratch, taking into account the features of nextgen systems. Now there are almost no such games on the market.

The author of the analysis was impressed by the work done. Players on the field are incredibly detailed, largely due to competent work with the technology provided.

For example, lighting is much more realistic interacting with the skin. What is noteworthy, the geometry of models in versions for outgoing and new generations is actually identical, but on PS4 and Xbox One basketball players look much more artificial and โ€œflatโ€ .

Over the course of the match players begin to be covered with sweat, which turned out to be extremely realistic in the nextgen version simulator. The DF highly praised this system.

The sites have visually changed thanks to new lighting and reflection techniques. On new consoles, they look more natural, whereas on systems of the outgoing generation – more cartoonish.

Moreover, new consoles in NBA 2K21 implemented a fundamentally different interface, and downloads literally do not exist – where on the PS4 Pro you have to look at the boot screen for about 28 seconds match, owners of the PS5 and Xbox Series see only a second short animation of the transition. At the same time, the choice of commands goes completely different: on new consoles, models of heroes instantly replace each other, which is impossible on the PS4 and Xbox One.

The nextgen loads player models, while PS4 and Xbox One show pictures. In addition, the nextgen version of the simulator presents a new mode where players can learn a small area of the city.

It‘s amazing how much effort the developers have spent on the version for new consoles. What’s up there with resolution and performance? PS5 โ€” honest 4K at stable 60 FPS Xbox Series X โ€” honest 4K at 60 FPS with rare drops up to 57 FPS Xbox Series S โ€” 1080p at 60 FPS with rare drops up to 58 FPS.

Notably, the PS4 Pro version also works in native 4K. Also various replays and cinematic cameras, as before, operate at 30 FPS.

NBA 2K21 rolled out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in September, whereas a nextgen version of the simulator appeared on the PS5 and Xbox Series at the same time as console releases in November. On computers, we note, as in the case of FIFA 21, the PS4 and Xbox One version was released.
