NBA 2K17

2K Sports has released a new trailer for NBA 2K17 that focuses on the professional basketball game's arenas. The video spotlights the league's numerous arenas and covers how they are modeled to be authentic to their real-world counterparts, even down to team-specific sounds and more.

In the video's caption, 2K says it visited all 30 NBA arenas across the United States and Canada to authentically capture how each stadium looks, but also how it sounds. As you'll see and hear in the video, the shot clock buzzer sounds different depending on what arena you're in. This is all being done in an effort to create the "most authentic experience in a sports game ever," 2K said.
