A new trailer for NBA 2K14 examines the game’s narrative-driven MyCareer mode.
According to 2K games senior community manager Ronnie Singh, MyCareer is “one of NBA 2K14’s most-played modes.” With over 300 pages of script content, MyCareer follows the “emotional journey” of a player-created character, both on the court and off the court as they navigate the choppy waters of life as a professional basketball star.
Players will manage and shape their character’s personality by the decisions and behaviors they make and the attitudes and stance they take. For example, answering questions politely or arrogantly will influence public perception of the character. Trades, social media feeds, and endorsements, and general career trajectory are all molded by how a player’s character acts (which is to say, how the player chooses to act).
NBA 2K14 is out now for PS4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
