NBA 2K21: The Uses Of The DualSense


They have put the focus on the Sony console and how the DualSense, its new controller, takes advantage of the game. 2K claims that their adaptive triggers and haptic technology has enabled them to enhance the gaming experience in several ways.

The triggers have been used both to reflect the energy and fatigue of the players we control, noticing how their resistance increases as the players get more tired, and to transmit the force that our player must do when playing on the post, being higher or lower depending on the size of the player to attack or defend.

Regarding haptic vibration, it also serves to reinforce collision systems. For example, when tackles and other contacts with other players, the controller will vibrate at different intensity depending on the strength of the players involved and the impact.

As always when talking about these changes and additions, it is difficult to get an idea of ‚Äč‚Äčtheir impact and real effectiveness but, of course, they seem improvements that may end up having a certain entity when it comes to reinforcing the sensations transmitted by the gameplay and what we see onscreen.

2K games has taken the opportunity to deepen other improvements in terms of the gameplay and, above all, the movement of the players. The main change here, however trivial it may seem a priori, is in the ability of the players to move their feet adapting to any situation, eliminating the slides that, as 2K itself states have been dragging during the last deliveries due to “limitations technological “.

The next-gen version of NBA 2K21 is the new installment for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. If you are enjoying this new version of NBA 2K21, remember that you can buy NBA 2K21 MT coins on the MTStacks store!
