NBA Playgrounds 2 Given a Firm Launch Date
Independent studio Saber Interactive has announced that NBA Playgrounds 2, the arcade-action sports game sequel, will arrive on May 22, 2018, for $19.99 (USD).
This sequel is said to be taking the series’ over-the-top, two-on-two street action even higher on new playgrounds around the world. New features include Playgrounds Championship mode, a worldwide ranked league with multiple competitive solo and co-op ladders, as well as a new single-player Season mode that recreates the experience of leading a team through the regular season and playoffs. There’s also four-player online matches, co-op matches against AI, improved matchmaking with dedicated servers, the return of three-point contests, custom matches, and more!
Putting the sport’s biggest players front and center, NBA Playgrounds 2 will launch with over 200 current and retired NBA players – including Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, DeMar DeRozan, Damian Lillard, Karl-Anthony Towns, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Dr. J., Allen Iverson and Larry Bird. There are also new moves and power-ups to bust out, improved AI, and new player models and animations.
We here at XBA are pretty impressed with the changes they are making and we are kinda looking forward to their effort paying off.
