Basketball returns to its arcade roots with a new 2-on-2 game launching this May
MAPLEWOOD, N.J. – April 6, 2017 – Developed by Saber Interactive, NBA Playgrounds is a new, high-flying, arcade-style basketball game. This classic 2-on-2 action experience will be available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™, and Windows PC (Steam) as a digital-only release in May 2017 for $19.99.
“Basketball is such a pick-up-and-play sport at heart – we really wanted to bring that spirit into gaming,” said Saber’s CEO, Matt Karch. “NBA Playgrounds has a lot of depth for pros who’ve mastered their game, but it’s accessible enough that anyone can jump in, have fun and feel competitive.“
All 30 NBA teams are featured in NBA Playgrounds, as well an extensive roster of current and retired NBA players that you can level up over time. Play solo, with friends in local and online multiplayer, or against the world in online tournaments. There are hundreds of over-the-top dunks and moves to unleash for show-stopping displays of acrobatic skill on lively playgrounds across the globe.
NBA Playgrounds is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB and expected to be rated PEGI 3+. For more information as game day approaches, visit nbaplaygrounds.game, like NBAPlaygrounds on Facebook, and follow @NBA_Playgrounds on Twitter. The game will be published by Mad Dog.
@Moonwalker: disappointing. I thought they'd have at least announced something, either a replacement for the loss lf crackdown, or something next new for 2018. (4 Hours ago)
exclusive, just timed. Jurassic Park building game announced, third party....no new exclusives or anything. (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: It wasn't a conference, it was basically like one of those daily E3 shows. Recore DE announced, free for Recore owners, Quantum Break gets 4K Patch, MS publishing PUBG but it's not (5 Hours ago)
Anything good announced? New games for instance? (6 Hours ago)
@HR2: wait. That happened? Man, i didn't even realise ot was gamescom yet, let alone their conference. Lol (6 Hours ago)
That Project Scorpio Xbox One X edition is out of stock at Amazon Germany and USA, and look on Ebay....disgusting. (6 Hours ago)
Microsoft's Gamescom show sure was a snooze fest. somebody needs to remind them what the word "premier" means. they re-used E3 trailers for EVERY game. I felt offended as a viewer, not even as a gamer (7 Hours ago)
