NBA 2K18 vs NBA 2K17: The Main Difference You should consider

Posted Time: 2017.09.11

NBA 2K17 successor--- NBA 2K18 will be released in September this year, before that, let us know about the changes are brought by the NBA 2K18.

Last year in September, after the release of NBA 2K17  some fans began to guess the next Visual Concept from game developers. Last year's game was not what the fans had expected. Although the overall reviews were positive, but glitches disappointed the fans from the first day. Over the past year, 2K kept assuring fans and released several updates to ensure hassle-free games, but many problems still exist.

Last year 2K17, developers successfully solved some problems, but the server and the game engine repeatedly showed their weaknesses. Sometimes, players can not even play this game, and 2K released some of the game updates are more harmful to the game.

Fans have great hope for the NBA 2K18, because the company has been assuring players that the new game will be better this year. There are what brought by the NBA 2K17 successor.


A new motion engine

Thankfully, the developers understood that the biggest challenge in many NBA 2K series games was the control system. The series games have always been animation heavy but in some of the previous entries, things started getting out of control. Random movements of characters were spoiling gameplay experience. This year, with NBA 2K18, the developers have changed the way motion is handled in the game. The animations are no longer responsible for a character’s’ movement, meaning that you won’t be seeing characters going insane and behaving differently than the commands given by the players. This was a much-needed change which is finally coming with NBA 2K18 this year.

Improved shooting system

With a heavy focus on skills in NBA 2K17, many things were negatively changed and the gameplay lost balance between skills and other elements of Basketball. Last year shot aiming was there, but this year, there’s a new shot meter and the developers have also improved the way shot feedback information is collected. Shot release time is still important but some of the elements including Green release is not solely based on it.

Next-gen graphics

NBA 2K series has become a standard for sports simulators and 2K18 has just raised the bar with stunning graphics. Every detail matters and this year, 2K has proved it. The level of realism the new game brings was never seen before in any of the games from the series. From wrinkles to tattoos, every single detail is absolutely amazing. 2K Sports confirmed that the game will run at 60fps in 4K HDR on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. The game will run at 60fps on the regular PS4 and Xbox One consoles. In terms of graphics, 2K17 stands nowhere in front of the new game.

New body system

2K Sports confirmed that they are no longer using body shape templates and a new body system is coming in NBA 2K18. All the player models are unique and everything including the specific anatomical details will be handled separately so that the gameplay experience will become better and more realistic.
