Believe it or not, but Snoop Dogg will be part of NBA 2K17 from now on. The game's developer 2K Games just announced the arrival of Park After Dark -- a music series specifically created for the title. Through this, the MyPARK mode will work like a party club of sort. Other known artist in the industry are also reportedly involved in this gig.
According to WWG, the aforementioned NBA 2K17 music series will kick-off come November 27. The mode will feature a club scene with special performances -- all live -- from Snoop Dogg (also known as DJ SNOOPADELIC). Artists who'll take part of the event includes the names of DJ Premier, among others.
NBA 2K17 players who are in PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC can participate the event. For the hip-hop superstar, it's only right for the game to get "Snoopify." It should be noted that the rapper's face was recently scanned primarily for the forthcoming event. "I'm going to set off the park with a SNOOPADELIC set," the titular rapper said.
The Park After Dark in NBA 2K17 will introduce a nighttime setting with glow-in-the-dark effects. It can be likened to how music festivals or parties are being done today, only that'll take place virtually. A center stage will be provided for the performance. Players can also expect avatars, decors and apparels, all designed specifically for the event.
The VP of Marketing for NBA 2K17 Alfie Brody said that this will be the most "lit" experience as far as the franchise is concerned. He also pointed out that music itself has been a huge factor in the series. Park After Dark is deemed to be the studio's way of furthering their connections with the community. After all, the players' experience is what they're after.
Brody also mentioned that in terms of marketing the forthcoming NBA 2K17 event, they were having second thoughts with the term "lit." However, since it seems to compliment the gig -- not to mention how pumped up they are -- they decided to move forward with it. Simply put, the activity will be about making friends, getting together and having fun.
