NBA 2k18 will introduce The Neighborhood
A new connected space will let players roam between various game modes
2K has announced The Neighborhood for NBA 2K18 – containing MyPARK, Pro-Am and the popular MyCAREER experience – together in a shared world for players to experience the life of an NBA athlete, both on the court and off.
MyPLAYERs live in a neighborhood environment with several locations in the city blocks to visit, with other MyPLAYERs and characters with whom to interact. Experiences and ratings revolve around player actions, whether it’s running into Kyrie Irving while getting a shave at the barbershop, competing on the courts in The Playground, getting inked at the tattoo parlor, or showing off the latest gear to friends while strolling the block.
NBA 2K18 is also introducing the Road to 99, the overarching meta-game that rewards users for improving their MyPLAYER’s overall rating, regardless of which modes they choose to play. Featuring a unified badge system across Pro-Am, Park and their NBA journey in MyCAREER, their attributes, animations and badges all combine to define their play style on the road to a 99 overall rating.
NBA 2K18 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC platforms on September 19, 2017. A version of the game will also release on PS3 and Xbox 360.
