*UPDATED* NBA 2K21 PS4: Price, Release date, Editions, Cover Stars, Next-Gen, dual entitlement & more
Most fans are anxiously awaiting 2K’s leap to next gen, but will it be playable on PS4?
Before those consoles arrive though, the game will land on PS4.
Release date Confirmed
NBA 2K21 will be released on Friday 4, September 2020.
NBA 2K21 on PS4
Despite all the hype surrounding NBA 2K21’s release on the next gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X, the game will release on the PS4 and Xbox One as well.
The PS4 Standard Edition will cost £59.99 / $59.99 with the Mamba Forever Edition fronted by Kobe Bryant will set you back £84.99 / $99.99.
There is Dual Entitlement on PS4 to PS5, but only if you purchase the Mamba Forever Edition.
Buying Kobe’s version will automatically get you the Standard Edition on Next Gen, with all your data transferred over to Next Gen.
PRE-ORDER NOW: NBA 2K21 Black Mamba Edition
We now know NBA 2K21 will have a current-gen cover star – none other than Portland’s Damian Lillard!
We do expect there to be a separate Legends Edition cover athlete as normal.
It’s likely to be Kobe Bryant, but that is unconfirmed at the moment.
NBA 2K21 on next gen
While you’ll be able to play NBA 2K21 on PS4, you’ll be missing out on a game developed for next gen capabilities.
With more processing power, we expect this game to take huge leaps for the NBA 2K series.
Some of these may not translate to current gen play.
We expect better looking crowds than ever with the extra processing room, and even more realistic graphical details.
The bespoke Next Gen version costs £64.99 / $69.99.
