2K Sports, bringer of NBA 2K14, have released the first image of what the game will look like on the next-gen consoles when it is released as a launch title for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The current-gen version of the game was released on October 1 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. One of the gripes we had in our review was that the graphics hadn’t improved much over the years, but we had high hopes that part of the reason for that was developer Visual Concepts’ focus on improving them for the next-gen.
The image above is a screenshot from the PlayStation 4 version of the game. As you can see, LeBron looks very LeBron-y. Other than that, we don’t have much to go on. The ball sure does look pretty though. And the lighting effects look good. And look at the detail in his tattoo!
Yeah, there’s only so much you can take from a single screenshot. Expect to see more over the next few weeks leading up to NBA 2K14‘s next-gen release.
