NBA 2K15 is set to release in a little over a month, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t constantly learning new things about the game. Typically the news relates to newly added features, but today’s actually involves a couple things that have been removed, but for very good reasons.
We told you a few months ago about the moving of former NBA Live developer Scott O’Gallagher to the NBA 2K team and his presence is already being felt. The other day, O’Gallagher tweeted the following on his Twitter account:
- “Charge Cheese? Gone! 1-3-1… GONE!”
This instantly excited a lot of gamers, as cheap charges were quite annoying to come across in the game, and was one of the most problematic in-game issues for what some call “cheesers” that exploit the game to their liking. Chris Manning, community manager for the game, further explained what this meant through his own Twitter account.
- “When you move your player around them, you will and can dribble around defenders. No more quick-draw charges.”
The other news as can be seen from O’Gallagher’s above tweet was that the 1-3-1 defense is no more in the game. It has had some issues in the past, so it appears they just decided to remove it rather than retool it, especially considering no one really uses it in the league right now.
Look for NBA 2K15 to release on October 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
