The NBA 2KVR Experience is now official on Sony PlayStation 4, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive for just $14.99. Earlier, a new trophy list of the game was leaked hinting of a VR possibility. So what does the new VR experience entail for NBA 2K17 and how does the new trophy list works for players?
NBA 2K17 Goes VR
Today marks the official launch of the NBA 2KVR Experience. But instead of a full-featured basketball title, the VR version of NBA 2K17 is more of a collection of mini-games. A testament to the slow progression of 2K games towards VR technology. The new VR title is narrated and voiced by the game's cover, athlete Paul George. Some of the gameplay included in the NBA 2KVR Experience are timed challenges, buzzer beater and a three-point shootout mode. Attaining in-game Gatorade boosts also allow you to earn attributes. The trailer for the new game looks good so far and makes it even better given the addition of a VR technology.
VR Possibility Hinted Earlier
Earlier, a trophy list was leaked by Exosphase showing 13 new achievements. The number is not the totality of the new virtual reality NBA 2K17 game but it clearly showed a series of mini-games with reference to time attack modes, shooting challenges for three-point shots, skill challenges and party tournaments. NBA 2k17 is the first licensed sports video game to make a dedicated offering meant for virtual reality.
With the NBA 2KVR Experience, gamers will get 13 new trophies including Shootster, Speedster and Trickster. Players can get the trophies by playing challenges in any difficulty level in Solo Mode. For main user games, the Party Time and Friend Zone games are available on any difficulty level. The Party Time trophy is available once you complete any Party Single Event while the Friend Zone trophy requires that you complete a Party Tournament.

For Solo Mode games, the trophies available are Fueled Up, Tricked Out, The Alternator, Ultimate Challenger, Three-Point Master, Time Lord, Missin' Impossible and Sink King. The Fueled Up trophy will be yours when you consume every type of boost and complete every game that comes with each one. For Tricked Out, you have to unlock all of the Skills Challenge Courses available in the NBA 2KVR Experience title. The Alternator requires you to sink every other shot done in a Three-Point game before you earn the trophy.

For the Three-Point Master trophy, all you have to do is not miss a single shot on a Three-Point game and complete the game on Pro difficulty. For the Time Lord trophy, you should get less than 10 seconds of catch-to-release time on All-Star or Pro difficulty in Buzzer Beater and make sure that you do not miss a shot.
