NBA Playgrounds gameplay footage

Posted May 3rd, 2017 at 8:30 am

The new arcade-style game NBA Playgrounds is only a matter of days away from releasing and independent developer Saber Interactive has now released a video offering the first official extended look at non-beta gameplay. NBA Playgrounds is a 2-on-2 game, played outdoors but more in the mold of NBA Jam than NBA Street, that has both offline and online play with individuals from the roster acquired through the opening of card packs.

NBA Playgrounds will release as a $20 digital download for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on May 9. Details on gameplay elements were revealed earlier. The game includes over 100 current players (though inexplicably missing a few big names) and 44 legends from the past. Check out the full roster here.

      Dude, wtf is your problem, calling something such as player models “CUTE” go back into your closet and hide.

    Why the developers of certain games have this strange obsession in putting players with big heads? 🙂 🙂
