The long-awaited and barely seen NBA 2K22 releases on September 10, and we’re finally hearing about the most-played mode in the game.
It has been a less-than-ideal reveal for 2K this year, which puts even more pressure on The City and the Neighborhood portions of MyCareer to deliver. Thankfully, we now have a full trailer and a link to the Courtside Report that shares all of the pertinent information.
As usual, the MyCareer journey looks to be packed with features and innovative concepts. It’s a big reason the NBA 2K brand has grown into one of the most popular in gaming.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s in store.
Next-Gen NBA 2K22 MyCareer – The City
Per a press release provided by 2K, the following information highlights what’s new in The City in NBA 2K22:
New City Quests will be solo ventures for players to experiment with their careers off the court, from becoming a fashion mogul to a rap icon;
An increased population will make The City feel as if it’s teeming with life, featuring new NPCs to fully bring the world around you together;
Ability to upgrade your crib – such as a penthouse with a zipline to take you directly to specific courts – as a player’s home plays a part in MyCAREER as a location where coaches and friends will give players new quests;
Explore new buildings added to The City, including a matchmaking building and Club 2K, where players can access music from some of the hottest labels that drop with every Season;
Rewards include new ways to get around The City, such as Go-Karts and Inline Skates, new emotes, intros and outros, animations, customized name plates and more.
Transportation is one of the biggest new pieces to The City. There were skateboards and bicycles in NBA 2K21, but 2K is upping the ante with Go-Karts and a zipline.
On Monday, 2K released an image that showed the brands now available for your avatar to wear in the virtual city.
As information comes through, it will be added to this post. You can see all of the details here.
The Neighborhood in NBA 2K22
The aforementioned press release briefly talks about the Neighborhood for Gen-4 systems, which also includes PC. It states:
“The Neighborhood is also returning for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC players. This year, set sail aboard the “Cancha del Mar”; from the lobby to the top deck, each level of the ship is designed to offer various hoops activities. Additionally, Seasons will offer exciting new Excursions that take place in tropical and recognizable locales, with every Season providing fresh content, new rewards, and unique events for engagement. ”
Again, NBA 2K22 releases on September 10 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC.
