The NBA 2K series was originally developed for the Sega Dreamcast, and then taken over by 2K Sports. There has been a new game released each year, which means that NBA 2K16 is the sixteenth version of this sports game. There is a lot to be expected from NBA 2K16 as the covers have been unveiled, and the one and only Spike Lee is involved with the story. There is also a release date for NBA 2K16, as well as some Locker codes for the NBA 2K15.
According to Gotta Be Mobile, the famed African-American director Spike Lee will be involved as a producer on NBA 2K16. Lee also wrote and directed the MyCareer mode that will be featured on this year's version of the game.
For those who are not familiar with MyCareer, it is one of many modes of the NBA 2K franchise offers outside its typical exhibitions. The purpose is to make you feel like a real NBA rookie, and 2K Game's Ryan Peters says that Spike Lee was brought in to "transform the narrative". Lee, who once directed Denzel Washington in a basketball film He Got Game, is a good choice for the 90 minutes of actual narrative in the game, and it will have its own plot, protagonist, and antagonist.
Other news about NBA 2K16 is about the covers. According to Gamespresso, the 3 MVP candidates have been selected and they include Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Anthony Davis, to be released randomly on game boxes.
One of the biggest features of NBA 2K15 was that it used facial scans of NBA players in order to add a level of realism. From there it was a matter of letting the developers and graphics technicians put the face on the individual NBA player, and the player of this game suddenly had a realistic-looking team.
According to KPopStarz, it has been revealed by some NBA teams that their players are getting full body scans to be used in the game. This will really bring the realism level up, and we already know that the Heat and the Nets have been scanned. This body scanning is not limited to just the players. Natalie Tenerelli, a dancer for the Los Angeles Clippers, has also had a full body scan.
Those that are playing NBA 2K15 are probably interested in getting Locker Codes, and there is a site devoted to them called NBA 2K 4 Life. The last code that they posted was at the end of last month (May 29, to be exact), and the code was #2K16NEWSon2KTV which is good for 1600 VC coins. These Locker Codes have a way of expiring, so you might want to see if that one still works.
According to the International Business Times, You should expect the release date of NBA 2K16 for September 29, 2015 for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It will be possible to pre-order the game and receive it four days earlier than the actual release date, and this pre-ordered version will have some in-game bonuses. This is interesting, as previous versions of NBA 2K have been released in usually the first week of October. Generally, many of the new games for holiday release are shown off at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, held every summer in Los Angeles. No doubt gamers will have a chance to try out NBA 2K16 and give their feedback.
