2K Sports has released an NBA 2K14 developer diary video showcasing numerous gameplay upgrades over last year's game.
The video discusses significant upgrades to the blocking system that will make it harder for offensive players to attack the rim.
"NBA 2K14 has seen a major upgrade in gameplay," promises the developer. "From physicality to improved defense, tighter controls and the awe-inspiring blocked dunks, prepare for the most balanced and deepest gameplay the series has ever seen."
NBA 2K14 has been confirmed for current and next-gen platforms. The new installment in 2K's basketball series has been confirmed for an October 1 release date across PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
Meanwhile, editions for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will launch alongside the consoles.
