After giving a first look with the teaser trailer, NBA 2K23 gameplay is finally taking the spotlight on the road to launch.

2K dropped a bomb of info today about gameplay improvements all across the board, but one many players will be focused on are the new Shot Meters.

They've also revealed that 20 different Shot Meters will eventually be available, but the other 15 options will be unlockable through Seasons as the year goes on.

Those unlockables will likely be tied to MyCAREER, but 2K has yet to drop details about the year's first Season and rewards.

In addition to being able to customize the overall look, NBA 2K Gameplay Director Mike Wang revealed an additional setting in the works.

While it didn't make it into this reveal or the official Courtside Report, they're working on a new controller setting to let players customize your ideal release point in shots.

The idea behind this feature is allowing players to decide if they'd rather their perfect shot release point be "early near takeoff or late closer to the wrist flick."

Wang also clarified at the end of his tweet revealing the feature that they are "still working out the kinks," so this could be something added in one of the early title updates depending on how that development progresses.
