Last year’s installment was plagued by various bugs and gameplay issues, but this new title looks like the upgrade fans have been asking for.

The trailer showcases New Orleans Pelicans, Zion Williamson warming up and shooting some hoops. His player model looks incredibly realistic and individual beads of sweat can even be seen dripping from his brow as he dribbles his way around the court.

Rays of sunlight also seem to be casting soft shadows across the stadium, suggesting that dynamic lighting may also be present in this new title.
