From being an open secret to being an official announcement. We are getting closer and closer to the launch of NBA 2K22, and you will surely want to know the variety of editions and information that you can find this year. Here we tell you.

1. Cover Stars

Some big stars adorn the various editions of NBA 2K22, the first is Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks a two-time NBA all-star who’s present on the standard editions cover, there’s also the 75th anniversary edition illustrated by artist Charlie Palmer and features three big icons Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant who have influenced the sport over its 75-year history. Finally six-time all-star and two-time MVP Candace Parker of the Chicago sky will be the first female cover athlete, decorating the WNBA 25th anniversary special edition, which can be purchased at Gamestop and Ebgames, it’s only available in the US and Canada, but represents some much needed recognition for the league.

2. Gameplay Changes

With the new NBA 2K title comes gameplay changes both big and small, this year’s edition is leaning into precision jump shots, dunking and traffic, and the new signature moves and combos being more skill based. On the defensive side, shot contest and blocking are being revamped, allowing defenders to have an even greater impact on the game. Last year saw some controversial changes to the shot meter so it should be interesting to see how the gameplay is shaken up further.

3. NBA 2K22 MyTeam Draf Returns

A returning feature for players on all platforms is MyTeam draft, once again allowing you to choose from a pool of players that keeps updating over time and create a lineup to play in online matches. MyTeam collection rewards including NBA 2K22 MT can also be earned in the process.

4. MyNBA and MyWNBA

In NBA 2K21, visual concepts consolidated MyGM and MyLeague into MyNBA on the Xbox Series X and S and PS5. The main difference is that while you could still control an NBA franchise and make decisions like trades drafting and so on throughout a season, certain features like conversations, skills, tasks, morale and chemistry, and scoring could be toggled on or off, this allowed for a much more customizable experience for say those who liked having skills and tasks but didn’t want to do a lot of reading. MyNBA will be returning along with the introduction of MyWNBA and while the various changes and features of both have yet to be detailed team management is still key, unfortunately it’s still exclusively for current gen versions of the game, so sorry to Xbox One, PC and PS4 players.

5. MyCareer – Hidden Talents

MyCareer will once again be the place for creating a custom character and working one’s way up the ladder into super stardom. The Neighborhood became The City last year and that will be making a return, and more information on that shortly. But one of the more interesting new features is hidden talents, available exclusively for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, this provides players with other ventures on the side like careers in hip-hop and fashion, each providing their own returns. Of course one can expect a traditional narrative as well which PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC players can experience.

6. MyCareer – No Place Like Home

Another new feature exclusive to Current Gen players in MyCareer mode is no place like home, described as central to the narrative and progress of one’s career it will evolve based on your journey. Again how this works remains to be seen but it serves as a nice way to showcase one’s hard work and milestones throughout.

7. NBA 2K22 The City

As for The City, it’s seeing several new features for Xbox Series X|S and PS5 players. Along with a new layout filled with NPCs and MyPlayers, there’s a new quest system that provides rewards and XP for leveling up. Matchmaking has also been added allowing you to enter select facilities in The City and start playing against others in a variety of game modes with progress going towards the MyPlayer profile. More details are yet to be revealed but thankfully previous gin and PC players won’t be left out to dry this year.

8. NBA 2K Cruise

While Xbox Series X|S and PS5 players get The City, those on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch get the 2K Cruise. It’s essentially The Neighborhood but on a cruise ship with basketball courts that travels through various exotic locations. Players can also make excursions to the shore and partake in events off the ship. The benefits of The City may prove superior but at the end of the day previous chin players do get a boat out of the deal.

9. MyTeam Seasons

But that’s not all, MyTeam will also be expanded on throughout the year with seasons, each season will bring new challenges events and rewards to earn for MyTeam. Additional modes can also be expected with the new original one set to debut this holiday season, though 2K games and visual concepts haven’t confirmed the start date for the first season, it will likely be sometime around the game’s launch, if not on the same day.

10. Pre-Order Bonuses, Standard and 75th Anniversary Editions
