The demo lets you play a match between the Bucks and Clippers, or the All-Time Lakers vs Celtics. You can also try the MyPlayer Builder customizations to make your perfect baller.

Now Playing: NBA 2K21 Reveal Trailer | Sony PS5 Reveal Event

2K Games recently outlined big gameplay changes for this year's edition of its basketball game. Those include more casual settings for those who want a less simulation-style experience, changes to the shooting mechanics, bigger point guards, and new signature moves for notable players like Russell Westbrook and LeBron James.

In addition to all the current-gen consoles and PC, 2K21 will also be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. 2K Games caused a stir by announcing those versions will be $70, marking a $10 increase over the standardized current price point. Other publishers largely haven't announced whether they'll be following suit with a price increase of their own, but there's reason to believe $70 could be the new normal.
