NFL 2K1 is the sequel to the well-received Dreamcast launch title, NFL 2K. Released exclusively on the Dreamcast and developed by Visual Concepts, NFL 2K1 added several gameplay changes, some graphical upgrades, a franchise mode, updatable rosters, and perhaps most importantly, online play via the Internet.
By using the Dreamcast 56k modem, players were able to play a home console football game online for the first time. In-game chat was possible if you had the Dreamcast Keyboard. Players could also download roster updates throughout the season for the first time. There were three regions and each region had 10 to 12 city-specific servers to select from to keep players close to each other and keep lag down.
- Online Multi-player for up to 8 total players (4 on each console)
- Enhanced running game with new blocking, juke, and power moves
- Franchise Mode
- Over 2,000 motion-captured animations
- Realistic team playbooks
- Online roster updates
