NBA 2K16 Starts out MyCareer As A Top High-School Player Named “Frequency Vibrations” Details Inside!
Not only did we find out the 3 new cover athletes today for NBA 2K16, but we have some MyCareer news. 2K16 MyCareer will be directed by Spike Lee who promises 12 hours of in-game drama. Spike Lee talks about how the story follows a top high-school prospect and the decisions he has to make.
“We follow a kid through the trials and tribulations of being a top high school player and the decisions he has to make,” Lee tells USA TODAY. He says that although he managed to master the intricacies of a 12-day motion-capture shoot at 2K Games’ Bay Area studios, his video game skills leave a lot to be desired.
“We added MyCareer in 2012, and we’ve always been trying to make it more and more of a real story, like a film with drama,” 2K spokesman Ryan Peters says. “We just told Spike, ‘You transform the narrative, and we’ll change that into digital polygons.’ And he did that, bringing a protagonist and antagonist to the story.”
Peters says Lee shot what amounts to 90 minutes of “cinematic narrative,” which translates to about 12 hours of in-game drama.
Not only did we learn a little about the storyline but Spike Lee says that the story will center on a player named “Frequency Vibrations”.
