NBA 2K15 Commercial Spot Revealed

Ronnie Singh's Avatar + Posted by Ronnie Singh on Jun 05, 2014 // Sr. Community Manager, 2K Games

Hello NBA 2K fans. We’re excited for what we have in store for NBA 2K15, coming October 7th. While the team is cranking away on development, we’re gearing up for some exciting things.

A few weeks back, we were ecstatic to announce league MVP Kevin Durant as our cover athlete for NBA 2K15. Kevin Durant has been my favorite player since coming into the league in 2007. I have so many stories of how big of a fan he is of our game from over the years. I remember when he came by our NBA 2K12 launch party and proceeded to play our game for two hours straight as if nothing else was going on.

When he announced he was cover star for NBA 2K15 the same day as his extraordinary MVP speech, he admitted to reporters that he begged 2K to be on the cover. Legitimately, it was one of his three dreams (along with winning MVP and winning an NBA championship) and you’ll find that no NBA player is a bigger fan of NBA 2K than NBA 2K15 cover athlete Kevin Durant.

As a basketball fanatic, one of the most memorable moments of the spring was Kevin Durant’s MVP speech. His words swept the nation as it was one of the most heart-felt speeches and most amazing 26 minutes of integrity and emotion we’ve ever seen. The concept of our new spot was inspired by Durant’s speech, where we infused some passionate gamers into the mix.

For us, the gamers mean everything to 2K and it was great to work with some of our most loyal fans. You may know them from their countless NBA 2K videos on YouTube — iPodKingCarter, NickTheBullsFan, QJB, and SubTheGamer. We’ve worked with these guys for years and know them to be among the most passionate and informative members of our community. And now they will star alongside Kevin Durant in a spot that will run on TV during one of the most watched events of the year — Game 1 of the NBA Finals. You gamers are the reason why we continue to push to exceed what we think is possible and deliver the best NBA gameplay experience every single year.

Today, we’re excited to share that very commercial spot (note: game footage is NBA 2K14, footage for NBA 2K15 coming soon) with you!

With NBA 2K15 approaching. Know one thing… your time has come.

NBA 2K15

Alongside our new spot, we’ve revealed the contents of the KD MVP Bonus Pack which you can get by pre-ordering NBA 2K15! There’s some really great stuff in here including things you won’t be able to get otherwise, so make sure to lock it in so you’ll be ready on October 7th when the game is released.

The KD MVP Bonus Pack includes:

  • 5,000 Virtual Currency
  • Kevin Durant Throwback MyTEAM Card
  • Two MyTEAM Card Packs
  • MyPLAYER Leg Sleeves, Inspired By Kevin Durant

Stay tuned for more information regarding NBA 2K15 in the future. We can’t wait to share what new, exciting things we have in store for our amazing fans.

Will we be able to make three team trades in GM/Franchise/Dynasty/whatever mode?

That feature was around for the PS3 games but last year as good as it was, PS4 NBA was missing this very very important feature. 3 team trades is essential in both the Real NBA and video game versions.

Please say it’s back this year.

I love playing 2k, but hate how “watered down” the game has felt over the past couple years as features were slowly removed (offline Association in particular). Definitely buying, but for now, I don’t see enough to make me pay full price or preorder it.

Since this is my first time playing a basketball game since nba live 08 or 09 I must say this game is quite fun compared to nba live 14. But that said the servers is a problem somewhat that needs to a lot better going forward because if your servers are not that good its a waste of my time.

Ronnie will the MyTeam packs be similar to 2k13 or 2k14 last gen? You probably can’t say, but I’m just wondering. I loved 2k13’s packs and that you never knew what you were going to get.

I have idea why not let real nba player play versus one another on twitch tv. Say for example james harden vs kobe Bryant.. A lot of nba player play 2k basketball. So why not make it happen.. Twitch tv is perfect place for this type of thing. It help games sales as well as grow community activity. maybe a fan versus a nba player 2 random games a month should suffice.

I will be getting a PS4 shortly. I know that PS4 games can be played remotely through the Vita, but it can be hard to do on the road. PS Vita need a NBA 2k15 stand alone game for it. Are you guys considering releasing a Vita version? I would love to see it on the Vita with a cross save option. It does not even have to be a crossbuy. Vita owners would buy it. Pretty please???

+ MTNation on June 5th, 2014 at 2:31 pm said:

I would like to request a “game face” type feature for My Player where you can scan yourself in. Not to bring up the competition, but EA Sports has done it with boxing and golf, I would think for the next gen consoles this would be easy to do.

It would also add a TON of realism to your my player and the re-playability would increase. I could live with the same voice for everyone if I could scan myself in.

As far as the voice comments you could simply add a say 6 preset tones, sop although the voice work is still done by the same actor you could simply make his voice deeper or higher.

Thanks for the reply.

If OA means Online Association that’s not what I’m talking about.

I only play sports games (like many people) offline, often with my friends over.

The only Team Building mode I do is now called My GM I believe.

GM mode always had 3 way trading, why did you take it out and why is it not 100% guaranteed to be back? Real NBA teams can barely make moves without 3 way trades, a video game trying to be realistic, should definitely have this feature.

Please focus more on your Offline game modes, making the game so Online focused is killing a lot of peoples enjoyment (tons of online save issues, etc…).

PLEASE MAKE MY GM A PROPER GM MODE ONCE AGAIN!!!!


75

+ CrashSpyro on June 5th, 2014 at 5:10 pm said:

I sincerely hope that the career mode is more like the last-gen version where you actually have control over progression, free agency, and all that unlike the current-gen version that came out at launch where the story was more important than letting you do what you wanted.


76

+ maltliquor23 on June 5th, 2014 at 7:47 pm said:

“A Major focus?” which part the offline saves or fixing servers that have been “fixed” every year since 2010. We shouldn’t be at the mercy of a companies failed equipment when playing offline game modes. Any thought otherwise is fool hardy. I shouldn’t have to pray during my game that it will save when i finish.

+ AuthenticXL on June 9th, 2014 at 7:38 am said:

Similar to what many are saying, I believe these two things should be focused on.

1. Offline Association. MANY people like playing offline with their friends having the ability for both players to have control of two or more teams and multi-seasons. Please keep MYGM mode for people that enjoy it, but fix Season/Association mode like how it was on the PS3 version of 2k14 where there was the ability to control many teams and have the ability to have two or more users able to play at a time with many continuing seasons. I don’t understand why this was removed when there was nothing wrong with it. Not giving 2K flack because 2K14 is hella fun to play, but still.

2. Better updates to players accessories and maybe better facial scans. It’d be cool that when Lebron changes facial hair or adds facial hair, it could update in game or so. Better facial scans for players like CP3. Also, Mario Chalmers has been wearing a padded sleeve for most of the season and yet in 2K this hasnt been updated. Many users update these in 2Kshare, hire them and they will make sure to keep these rosters and accessories up to date.

Thanks
