NBA 2K16 is a basketball simulation video game developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports. It is the 17th installment in the NBA 2K franchise and the successor to NBA 2K15. It was released on September 29, 2015 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.
2K Sports has announced that it has shut down the online servers for NBA 2K16 already. This means you will have to buy NBA 2K17 or NBA 2K18 to play online. Since NBA 2K is an annual franchise, servers are only kept up for around two years or so.
2K17 AI tries harder but fails more spectacularly. 2K16 AI takes less calculated risk and averages out to be a better defense. In both versions of the game offline, if you know what you are doing, there’s no reason you can’t score 80-100 pts with just one player on cuts to the paint.
It emerges, at one point, that ” Freq ” accidentally killed a guy at high school while fighting in a stairwell. Vic, your childhood friend, messes up in a series of infuriating ways throughout the story, before finally dying in a car crash.
NBA 2K16 is arguably the greatest NBA 2K game of all time for good reason. They introduced an amazing MyCareer story arc, they rolled out the iconic ProAm, and it featured the one of the best Parks that was ever created. This was the pinnacle of innovation and improvement for the NBA 2K franchise.
In fact, by all observable measures, the death of Victor Van Lier improved the lives of every character in NBA2k16.
you can still play basketball offline. But limited. Blacktop, Exhibition, Franchise/GM. All online modes are completely inaccessible.
These days however, although it’s considered offline play, the NBA side of MyCAREER is still connected. The ability to customise your MyCOURT was lost when NBA 2K16 and NBA 2K17 went offline, as was the Badge upgrade system.
As you’re probably aware by now, NBA 2K17’s servers will be spinning down at the end of this year. If you created a MyCAREER or MyGM online save file before this, the server shutdown means the data will no longer be available for use and you’ll have to start a new game in those modes.
