NBA Playgrounds is an arcade title that had a bit of buzz a couple months ago. I’d say that buzz has come and gone, but I’m sure there’s still a core community online.
That is if you’re playing the PS4, PC or Xbox One versions of the game. There couldn’t be a core online community for the Switch version because the game launched without online play.
TWO MONTHS later it has finally arrived. You can download the patch now. Developer Saber Interactive released a public letter thanking its fans for their patience.
“Online is here at last. Play online, compete is ranked matches for top spots in the leaderboard and challenge your friends, enemies and other players. Game on! With the new Challenge feature, you’ll be able to directly challenge another player to a game on the Playgrounds. All you have to do is agree on a code, open the online mode, switch to Challenges, enter that code and face each other.
In response to great feedback, we’ve also tweaked the entire shooting system from jump shots, to threes, to dunks, layups, and everything in-between. We’ve redone the timing, added a meter, and clarified the entire system. Keep those comments coming!
As a big thank you to our rabid fans, we’ve also added 15 new players, including Isaiah Thomas and Dennis Rodman! Those two all-stars and 13 others can be unlocked regularly through player packs, earned during tournaments or when leveling up your profile.”
I did a review on NBA Playgrounds for my personal Youtube channel. If you care to check it out, then click here. You won’t be disappointed. Just know I reviewed the PS4 version of the game.
