'NBA 2K17' release, gameplay news: timed locker codes among new features


Fans of the "NBA 2K" series will be happy to know that 2K has listened to all their comments and suggestions for the upcoming "NBA 2K17" game. It has been revealed that Timed Locker Codes is one of the new features that will come with the new game, among a few others.

In an NBA 2KTV YouTube video, community manager Ronnie Singh divulged that along with Timed Locker Codes, Signature Animation and a new face scanning app will also be included.

Previous locker codes were user-based, and with the revelation of time-based ones, there are definitely fans out there who are going wild.

"Locker codes are coming back and they are timed locker codes," said Singh. "They're not user-based. They're actually timed locker codes. That's what the community wants and that's what's coming to 'NBA 2K17.'"

As for the signature animation, utilizing the right stick on the gaming console would allow players to control them. The new face scanning application will also prove to be better than the previous ones. Additionally, the ever-popular Yeezys will be featured in the game as well, due to public demand. It remains to be seen if all these new additions will pay off, but fans are certainly excited to get their hands on the game.
