TAKING IT TO THE STREETS: NBA STREET’S ONLINE MULTIPLAYER COMPETITION
For fans of the classic NBA Street series, they know that it’s all about street-level hoops with an excessive amount of showmanship. That same wild, high-flying gameplay has been brought to the interactive online gaming world and with it comes a new level of cutthroat competition. Take a deep dive into the world of NBA Street’s online multiplayer rivalry!
Compete for the Crown
Whether playing in a multiplayer match or competing in a tournament, gamers have the chance to showcase their Street skills in a number of creative ways. Battling one-on-one, as well as team-based challenges, players can use a variety of tricks and crazy shot attempts to build a highlight reel that will live on long after the game is over. As the focus is on virtual street basketball, it’s up to the players to make a name for themselves as one of the greats on the court and maybe even unlock coveted rewards. Player hype is also a big part of NBA Street’s online experience, whether it’s trash-talking in a 1v1 or catching someone out of position, gamers have plenty of options for showing off their skills while competing against other opponents.
Player vs Player Rivalries
In addition to joining local tournaments and online ladders, players can also join invite-only matchups to take on specifically invited rivals in a season-long rivalry. Be it a friend, a neighborhood opponent or a social media foe, gamers can now directly challenge competitors to matches, as well as create an invite system for other friends to join their private matches. Gamers also have the ability to start a rivalry and compliment its intensity by creating story narratives and involving some of the game’s own legendary players in their rivalry games. This gives players even more incentive for not only competing, but honing their skills to become the best.
NBA Street’s online core gaming technology is known as StreetMatch, a new way to play one-on-one against another opponent. This technology tracks a player’s performance throughout the season and provides an array of features that are tailored to their own play style. While StreetMatch aims to level the playing field, the game still thrives off of its street roots, with each competition becoming more and more of a battle of wits. Players can battle with the game’s built-in shot counter, as well as challenges, such as the defense-challenge, which rewards a player a point each time they successfully disable or block a shot attempt by their opponent. This allows a player to customize their gaming experience in order to engage in battles they may not have been able to engage in before.
Show Your Skills
In the world of NBA Street, competition shines brightly. And, with its online community, the world of street-level hoops is ever-expanding. No matter your skill level, whether rookie or Hall of Fame, each player has the opportunity to make a statement through the madness of StreetMatch. Show your skills for the world to see and join the never-ending battle to be crowned the one-and-only NBA Street champion.
