A few hours before Kevin Durant announced he was dropping out of Team USA’s upcoming participation in the FIBA World Cup due to “mental and physical exhaustion,” Durant unveiled the first gameplay footage of NBA 2K15 on his Instagram page.

The footage is captured from the Playstation 4 version of the game, and shows a digital Durant driving and dunking on digital Andrew Iguodala.

Though only 10 seconds long, the footage shows noticeable graphic improvement over last year’s 2K14, most notably a more interactive crowd and more realistic looking sweat.

But that’s not all. Here’s 2K Sports representative “Ronnie 2K” giving a more detailed breakdown.

Yup, that’s the biggest improvement of all: realistic armpit hair.

NBA 2K15 hits stores October 7.
