2K releases next-gen Eco-Motion trailer for NBA 2K14
Today 2K sent out an email showing off 2K’s brand new engine called Eco-Motion. This engine was developed for NBA 2K14, and the company claims that the game has been “completely re-engineered from the ground up to harness the power of next gen”.
Says 2K, “With Eco-Motion, the entire NBA experience comes to life in ways never before seen in a video game. Gone are the days of pre-canned animations that must play out exactly as they were mo-capped. Now, in-game players adjust their movements based on the environment around them. Jumpshots will change midair, dribble moves will alter in between dribbles, and players will land in a unique way following every thunderous dunk or block.”
They go on to state that, thanks to this new engine, no two animations will ever look exactly the same.
What are your thoughts on this new engine? Does it affect your interest in the next-gen version of the game at all?
