The game will occupy more than 100GB on both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, as confirmed in the Microsoft Store.
If something is not going to change in the new generation of consoles, it is that the size of the games will continue to increase. NBA 2K21, the new installment of the basketball simulator developed by Visual Concepts, recently revealed its size on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Nothing more and nothing less than 121.7 GB in the first model, while the second will require a little less space, 101 GB. As for the PS5 version, the box has been leaked and has already been published: the detail is that it indicates that the game will need 150 GB for installation.
It is not the only video game that has raised the alarm in that regard. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the new installment in Activision’s star saga, will follow in the wake of Modern Warfare and will not be light at all. Those who install all the content on Xbox Series X / S will have to accommodate their hard drives to accommodate the nearly 190 GB they need.
Designed for the new generation
NBA 2K21 was released first on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but the next-gen version has been built specifically for upcoming machines. This is reflected in the graphics, but also in other aspects such as loading times or new game modes. In fact, Visual Concepts has completely revamped the El Barrio mode, which they have called The City.
“Imagine a map that is much, much larger than our previous neighborhoods, a design reminiscent of modern metropolises and complemented by long skyscrapers, squares and the city center,” said 2K Games in an official blog update. . Players will be able to enjoy four different Affiliations, each with its own courts and characteristics. They are North Side Knights, South City Vipers, Beasts of the East, and Western Wildcats
