NBA 2k17 to feature Michael B. Jordan
Actor will join the basketball game's single player story mode
2K has announced that actor Michael B. Jordan will star alongside gamers in the NBA 2K17 MyCAREER storyline.
Jordan visited NBA 2K’s studios to capture his in-game likeness through motion-capture technology, while undergoing hours of scene development and voiceover audio recording. Jordan’s resume includes starring roles in films such as Creed and Fruitvale Station, as well as television shows The Wire and Friday Night Lights.
In NBA 2K17’s MyCAREER experience, Jordan stars as Justice Young, a rising NBA star that teams up with your MyPlayer. Throughout the game Justice acts as a friend and support system while navigating the realities of playing in the NBA, with greater emphasis on in-game choices that will directly impact outcomes on-and-off the court.
Jordan’s addition continues NBA 2K’s legacy of partnering with entertainment’s biggest stars including filmmaker Spike Lee, who directed last year’s NBA 2K16 MyCAREER experience.
NBA 2k17 is set to release later this month for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC.
