NBA 2K14 Video Examines How 2K’s Eco-Motion Engine Helps Bring B-Ball to Life

Posted on November 7, 2013 AT 11:02am


A new video for NBA 2K14 highlights what next-gen means for the basketball simulator and how the developers harness that power through their Eco-Motion engine.

A lot of what Eco-Motion adds to NBA 2K14 is in the details—player behavior on the court, emotiveness, and realism. Eco-Motion, producer Rob Jones describes, helps “really bring players to life in a way that we’ve never done before—to make the game look smarter, feel better, react in a more realistic fashion than it ever has.”

This is all better seen than described, however, so I suggest scoping out the five-minute video (embedded below) yourself.

NBA 2K14 is out now for PS3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will launch alongside each console on November 15 (November 29 in Europe) and November 22 respectively.
