NBA Elite 11 Become Legendary Mode Introduced

Posted August 9th, 2010 at 3:30 pm

EA Sports has released a new trailer focusing on the “Become Legendary” mode in NBA Elite 11. Become Legendary is the name being given to what would be most recognized as Be a Pro in NHL or FIFA. Created players in the mode will also be used in the online EASBA (similar to EASHL in NHL). Both were originally discovered back in June but EA Sports had yet to publicly acknowledge them until now.

The trailer pushes the Gamestop pre-order and bonus but does provide the first discussion of the the mode (though vague) in the process. Continue on to check out the video and leave your thoughts in the comments!

    i have always said that about 2k… i have always said this no matter how good live/elite gets 2k fans will still buy 2k… live could release real game footage and call it gameplay and people will say oh why did he jump like that, that doesnt look right blah blah blah

    Elite benefits from the perception they are completely rebuilding, when that isn't the case. While they did change the engine in a big way, they also appear to have added in a huge mode with Become Legendary, kept Dynamic Season, and we don't know if there's Dynasty improvements either. It should be a good year for NBA fans and gamers with both games plus all of the drama in the league as well.

    Damn Daley you are coming up short with those criticisms. I agree that 2K needs to refine gameplay and stop releasing broken products, but Live needs more features.

  • Amen_Ra

    I agree man, those clips look like ass, he is doing EA a favor by not posting that shit

  • Alex

    those clips are pretty bad. ALl that stuff or similar stuff has happened in 2k AND previous Live games. Bynum losing the ball was a ball physics disaster

  • Anonymous

    Alex, slap blocking a ball off the backboard has never been in any video game so you are incorrect there, As far as the rest of the clips go, you do understand you are looking at raw video hear of a game that is still in development. All of these clips are generated from the devs tinkering with the game play. None of these clips are anywhere near finish quality.

    Like the typical 2k fan you are, you see everything through 2k colored glasses instead of recognizing the advancements being made in the genre. Elite will have things this year that no other basketball game has ever had. Individual ball physics, Real time physics of the players.

    You think that 2k has things things because you see a canned annimation that looks just like it. The real difference is that with the real time physics, the animations occur based on the actual contact of the players and not some random canned animation screen.

    Like EA has said all along, Wait til you put your hands on the game. 2k fanboys used to talk the same shit about NHL2k vs EA until NHL09. Now where is your precious NHL2k series. DEAD! Bannished to the Wii forever.

    So don’t be too quick to judge Elite just yet. Elite will have some tricks up its sleeve and I for one am really looking forward to this years title.

  • jonathan

    i guess i like the menus better than 2k’s my player, and the new controls might be suited better towards this type of mode than 2k’s (assuming you have more control of your player), but i’m far from sold.

  • Sdot

    YEA BUT DEY HAD SUM UGLY CHIX POSTED ON UR COMPUTER SCREEN LOL

  • Faceart

    Pastapadre, any word on whether Elite will have the national teams and the World Championships or Olympic tournaments?

  • cabrillo24

    Yet when it comes to anything Madden you posted it up with the quickness. I know you have a football biased man, but don't leave the bballers out of this.

  • Bongo

    Olypmic Tournaments??? Are you serious??? come on man… its 2010. even if it was 2012 now, there would be no olympi tournament in elite 11… Nationalteams – yes ; olympic tournament – hell no….

    haha….

  • daley7199

    You speak the truth young man. Finally someone gets it. Fanboys will be fanboys whether its EA or 2k. Like you've said. 2k could make the game as real as humanly possible but 2k fanboys will buy 2k regardless.

  • Anonymous

    Its Almost that time to do the dang thing folks Elite is the game

  • Anonymous

    Mod or not it still shows how 2k has NO DEFENSE DOT and therefore is not anywhere near what the real game of basketball is. 2k isn’t going to all of a sudden instill a defense into there coding. There game is all about fooling you simple minded dunk happy fools with flashy highlight reel shit. 2k knows that its fanbase aren’t real basketball players. They are just ESPN highlight watchers and that is what they are giving you each year in their game.

    Just look at every 2k game advertisment videos and when do you ever see a great defensive stop featured in a video. Its always an uncontested dunk.

    Just go to You Tube Dot and type in NBA2k10 Glitches and watch all the videos of stellar 2k is . Your game is as glitched as it gets. Sorry Dot, but you have been drinking the Kool Aid too long. You are just a blind consumer who buys on reputation alone.

  • Sdot

    LMAO 1ST IT DOES MATTA UR TRYNA CRITICIZE 2K11USIN (2K10 WTF) FAIL

    2ND ITZ A HIGHLIGHT REEL ( HE COULD HAV DAT ISH ON PRO or ROOKIE DUMMY TH!NK)

    LIVE = ALL GIMMICKS SIDE DISHES

    2K = SOLID GPLAY MAIN COURSE ISH

  • cabrillo24

    The mode will probably be a little broken? Based off what findings? 2K11′s should be improved? Based off what findings? Which I enjoyed? Oh, “findings” based of biased. Gotcha.

  • cabrillo24

    Listen homie, you typing in caps and ranting isn’t providing proof. Live/Elite was arguably the better game last year. Keyword: Arguably. This wouldn’t have been a discussion 2-3 years ago. Now Elite has revamped, added new modes, provided incentives, improved player models…they’re throwing the kitchen sink into this one…what has 2K revealed to this point? The Jordan Challenge? I can see how that is a bonus, personally I like it, but other than that, what else has 2K done? The engine has needed revamping for years, and from what I’ve been reading, 2K has been making subtle changes, but I have a feeling that 2K12 will be a completely revamped engine.

  • cabrillo24

    I’ll skip on the dynasty if Become Legendary is fully immersed “be a pro” mode,

  • cabrillo24

    They’ll probably have FIBA again, but seeing as its a make or break year, I don’t see them investing more into the international aspect of the game.

  • Samson

    Well, I have been playing both games over the last two years. In 2009 I played NBA 2K9 + NBA Live 09 and in 2010 2K10 and NBA Live 10.

    I would say that both games are great but I think that 2K’s basketball games are still better. Compared to EA’s games, playing 2K’s feels so much better.

    EA has regardless the better organisation, but 2K has the better basketball games…

  • Sdot

    LMAO @ U GUESS U HAVEN’T READ DA DEV NSIGHTS DETAILIN WUT DEY HAV DUN DIS YR

    ON WUT DEY DID ON OFFENSE DEFENSE CONTROL SCHEME ETC….

    SEE AGAIN I TALK FACT & FACT IS DA NFO IS OUT DEER IF U AIN’T READ IT DATZ ON U .

  • Sdot

    Developers write blogs, but the proof is in the pudding. It’s about seeing it in motion. 2K and EA talk but until you see/feel it, its all for nothing. And Fact is, you have yet 2 see a video show-casing any thing they’ve talked. Once again, you troll. Please take the biased off. I play both games, because I’m a basketball fan, just can’t stand trolls like you with the blinders on and takes things out of contexts or manipulates data to support only your point of view while ignoring other facts. I’m done with you once again, waste of time talking to a kid like you.

  • Sdot

    FACT I S DAT DEER HAV BIN PREVIEWS WRITTEN FROM BOTH DA E3 SHOWIN

    & MORE RECENT IGN PREVIEW & N BOTH THOSE DA WRITER SEEMED XTREMELY PLEASED WIT WUT 2K11 IS BRINGIN

    one word…..DEMO

  • http://www.facebook.com/JayNoc Jamar C. Anderson

    I think 2K “had” the better basketball game. They are basically going the route that EA went last year with Live 10 involving Iso and more Control. They can keep tweeking that old engine of theirs, but in the end they will have to scrap it. If they scrap it, they are in trouble. EA is already in year 1 of a 3 year process with their engine. Live 10 was better than NBA 2k10. Live hasn’t been good in 4 years, but with the direction Elite is heading….it’s not looking good for 2k. 2K will be followers soon. Their NHL series is done, Boxing is dead, Baseball game sucks, no football (they won’t see that license any time soon) and NBA 2k will be lagging soon. Jordan can only save the series for another year and the fans will massively cry about gameplay. I will buy Elite and borrow 2k from my cousin. Live 10 – 8.1 NBA 2k10 – 8.2 (last year grading system on average) EA closing that gap. LOL
