The end of August has been big for NBA 2K19. We saw the Neighborhood trailer drop last night and tomorrow marks the debut of NBA 2K19 The Prelude.
Today we saw the release of the MyNBA2K19 companion app which will allow players to scan their face ahead of the release of NBA 2K19 The Prelude tomorrow. The companion app also gives players many opportunities to earn VC ahead of the official release of NBA 2K19.
Here’s what you can do in the app according to a press release sent out by the developer. MyNBA2K19 is available on iOS and Android devices.
