Visual Concepts announced some new in-game features for the upcoming College Hoops 2K5 game.  Here they are:

Quote
SAN RAFAEL, CA-(October 21, 2004)- ESPN Videogames today announced that ESPN College Hoops 2K5 will include many new gameplay features, including an all-new passing system, Pass-N-Go.  The Pass-N-Go system authentically recreates the team-oriented play and explosive action of collegiate basketball.  

The innovative Pass-N-Go passing system allows gamers to utilize two different passing techniques - regular directional passing and lead passing to beat their opponents to the net.  These two passing mechanics give the user freedom to pass to the open man or make a riskier lead pass that leads a teammate to the basket.  Both passing buttons also feature advanced controls where a gamer can perform a give-n-go pass or an alley-oop at great risk and even greater reward.

"Our Pass-N-Go system offers consumers a new dimension of realism in college basketball video games," stated Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts - makers of ESPN Videogames.  "The concept is simple, but revolutionary. Gamers will be blown away by the enhanced maneuvers this feature allows.  Furthermore, the amazing visuals, breakthrough gameplay, and authentic ESPN presentation, make ESPN College Hoops 2K5 the most complete college basketball video game on the market."

Free throws are an integral part of any basketball game, and ESPN College Hoops 2K5's new Free Throw System makes it simple and intuitive.  Users simply hold the shot button and release it as the player releases the shot.  Each player in ESPN College Hoops 2K5 has a different free throw animation and timing that can change depending on how tired the player is and how long the game has gone on.  The new Free Throw System is elegantly simple, yet challenging to both rookies and veterans of the game.

Coming soon for both the Xbox(r) videogame system from Microsoft and PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system, ESPN College Hoops 2K5 promises sports fans unparalleled ESPN telecast-style presentation featuring the return of Jay Bilas and Mike Patrick giving all the play-by-play action. Enhanced audio in ESPN College Hoops 2K5 delivers the most accurate crowd noise, college chants and fight songs.

Thanks Fox!

This game has easily become my 2nd most looked-forward-to game each year.  Right after ESPN NFL 2kx and right before ESPN Baseball 2kx.

IMO, VC does an EXCELLENT college basketball game.

I can't wait for this one.

I agree lockdown, I'm all over this one.  I don't care for the NBA, but college basketball is a different story.  If only VC would make another college football game using the 2K5 engine.  I would be set smile

The free throw change made this game an automatic IN for me.

Anyone up for online play/possible league or tourney?

I claim UNC.

Yeah, this game looks fantastic - as was last year's.  Time willing, I'd be in for a tourney as either Indiana University or Weber State (Utah).

What are you doing quoting yourself, Devil?  Having a mental breakdown over there or something?   :twisted:
