NBA 2K21 makes a full-court press to Xbox’ Game Pass

If you’re a basketball fan who’s yet to play 2K’s latest take on the sport, then you are in for a treat and a half. The game is making its way to Game Pass.

Pass the game

So, first, if you’ve yet to play NBA 2K21 you should know that it’s a pretty great basketball sim. The Visual Concepts-developed title offers a load of game modes, terrific looks (no matter the generation), and solid gameplay.

Even for a lapsed fan like myself, it’s a fun time. We reviewed the game here, and tagged it with an 87%, saying:

NBA 2K21 is terrific, offering a bunch modes that include season play, WNBA, playground games, and a hearty creation suite. It also looks awesome, with excellent levels of detailing on both players and courts. I have a hard time imagining that fans of the sport wouldn’t have fun with this one.

Our score: 87%

So basically, it’s a pretty good time. And now, it’s set to be more or less free for Xbox gamers. You do have to be a Game Pass subscriber to get in on the action, but as long as you are then you’re in b-ball heaven.

NBA 2K21 is coming to Xbox Game Pass!
