2K have revealed a bunch of exciting new features that are on their way to us this year in their annual basketball jam, NBA 2K22.

They include a shiny new narrative experience that sees MyCAREER and the City come together on new-gen consoles, as well as – according to the latest ‘Courtside Report’ – the following:

• Gameplay – On-court gameplay movements will give players more control on how they score the ball to improve offensive moves and combos and how they counter those moves on the defensive end.

• Seasons – Across fan-favourite experiences, Seasons will allow players to extend and enhance their hoop ambitions long after the game’s launch with more content, more rewards, and more ways to play.

• MyTEAM – An evolved experience gives MyTEAM players more ways to build and compete with their own dream teams. New challenges, rewards, and events make every Season fresh and unique.

• New Neighbourhood – On PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, players will compete in an all-new Neighborhood built on the spacious decks of a sailing cruise ship.

• New City – The biggest online basketball community is getting a makeover. Step into an all-new City teeming with life, activity, and interactivity (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S).

• MyNBA & MyWNBA – Build a winning franchise by making sure the staffing is just as strong as the hooping (new-gen consoles).
