What’s new in ‘NBA 2K22?’
“NBA 2K” saw major graphical improvements with the leap to the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles last year. “NBA 2K22” further optimizes those visuals on the new consoles, while players on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC can expect improved animations compared to last year’s game.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions will also let players explore a new city environment in the game’s MyCareer and Neighborhood modes. Meanwhile, the neighborhood mode on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC will be staged on a cruise ship.
All versions of “NBA 2K22” incorporate seasonal rewards across multiple modes, challenging players to complete tasks and unlock in-game items. Each season will last six weeks, with nine total seasons of rewards planned before the release of “NBA 2K23.”
“NBA 2K22” will also include more robust features for WNBA modes, like improved progression during season and MyCareer modes, and easier matchmaking with friends when playing online. 2K Games plans to release more details about the MyCareer mode and gameplay changes in the days before release.
