NBA Playgrounds 2 Announced

If you enjoyed the arcade style basketball offering Saber Interactive put together with NBA Playgrounds in May last year, then you’ll be very pleased with the announcement of NBA Playgrounds 2, the sequel to the successful title which many members of our community enjoyed.

Those looking forward to the next instalment in the series can look forward to more intense and over-the-top two-on-two street action they’ve come to love from the first. This time around however, there will be more modes, new courts, and over 200 current and retired NBA players to check out. The Playgrounds Championship mode introduces a new worldwide ranked league system in which players can take part in multiple solo and co-op division ladders.

Season mode will allow players to take their favourite team through the regular season, then hopefully the playoffs for a shot at the NBA Championship. To make things run smoothly, the game will come with improved matchmaking with dedicated servers where players can square off in new four-player online matches, the three-point contest, custom matches, and a whole lot more.
