Breaking Down The Best New Features for NBA 2K24

It’s almost time to jump back onto the virtual hardwood, as the next edition of the NBA 2K video game series is coming soon. And there are some big changes to this year’s version that should add to the user experience.

NBA 2K24 is set to release Sept. 8, with both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions supporting cross-platform play.

The most notable change to this year’s game is the new ProPLAY technology. According to 2K Sports, the system is “a groundbreaking new technology that directly translates NBA footage into NBA 2K24 gameplay.”

In the past, players’ actions in the game had been created via motion capture. The real-life NBA stars worked with 2K to replicate the actions they used on the court over the course of a season.

Now, 2K can take movement from actual NBA games and incorporate it into the game. Providing players with the most life-like gameplay experience yet.

The following movements will all be upgraded via the ProPLAY technology: jumpshots, dunks, layups, dribble moves, pass animations and signature movements. Even inbound passes and other small details will appear more realistic as well.

In NBA2K23, MyNBA introduced various eras in which users could jump into for the franchise mode. A new era will appear in NBA 2K24: The LeBron Era. It will take users back into the early 2010s, when LeBron James teamed up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as they eyed bringing multiple championships to the Miami Heat.

For users looking to play something else fresh, there will be a new challenge mode in NBA 2K24: Mamba Moments.

Those who played NBA 2K23 will recall the Jordan Challenge, which allowed users to play and recreate the most memorable moments of Michael Jordan’s legendary career. It provided a great history lesson in the process.

Mamba Moments will be the same type of mode, but it will feature the greatest career achievements of the late Kobe Bryant, who is on the cover of NBA2K24. So this will be a must-play experience for fans of the “Black Mamba.”

All of the core modes and features are returning, and the play should only be better with the new technology being brought to the table.

NBA 2K24 Top 12 Rated Players

NBA 2K24 Top 10

NBA 2K24 is set to launch on September 8 on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC consoles. So far, 2K has not given us much, revealing very few details since announcing that Kobe Bryant is this year’s cover athlete. That’s starting to change, as the first big info dump is coming August 14. The team at 2K did give us a little something, releasing the ratings for the top players in the league.

Last week, we learned a few of the top rookie ratings. This week we learned who the top players in the entire game are. The list gets started with reigning NBA Champion Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, who is actually rated two points better than any other player in 2K. Here’s the full list of the top 12 players in NBA 2K24:

  • Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokić: 98 OVR
  • Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokunpo: 96 OVR
  • Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James: 96 OVR
  • Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid: 96 OVR
  • Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant: 96 OVR
  • Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry: 96 OVR
  • Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic: 95 OVR
  • Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum: 95 OVR
  • Miami Heat forward Jimmy Butler: 95 OVR
  • Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard: 94 OVR
  • Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker: 94 OVR
  • Portland Trailblazers guard Damian Lillard: 94 OVR

NBA 2K24 launches on September 8 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms. As mentioned, we’ll get our first look at gameplay on August 14, and 2K will follow that up with a deep dive into The W, MyNBA, and Mamba Moments on August 21. Then, we’ll get a look at MyCareer, The City, and MyTeam on August 28 before 2K reveals the contents of Season 1 on September 4.

NBA 2K24 Schedule Teases Several New Reveals

NBA 2K24 Teasers

2K Sports officially announced NBA 2K24 earlier this month but didn’t reveal much outside of the cover athlete and pre-order bonuses. As of now, the only thing we really know about the game is that it will support crossplay on next-gen consoles and is using the Jordan Moments concept to make a Kobe Bryant-centric mode. Beyond that, we’ve only gotten hints at gameplay improvement with ProPlay and other small teases. Fortunately for NBA 2K24 fans, that’s going to change soon as 2K Sports announced its reveal roadmap for August and September which will take us up to the game’s release on September 8.

The current roadmap for NBA 2K24 reveals kicks off on August 14. That’s when 2K will give the first real look at gameplay, including the new ProPlay technology. We don’t know much about what this is at this point, but 2K did call it “a groundbreaking new technology that directly translates NBA footage into gameplay and delivers animations and movements via on-court NBA action for a generational leap in authenticity on PS5 and Xbox [Series] X/S.” That sounds…pretty great.

The next week, on August 21, we’ll learn more about the game modes. 2K Sports will be talking about The W (the WNBA mode), MyNBA, and Mamba Moments. MyNBA is similar to Franchise mode in other sports, but last year 2K introduced a feature that would let you jump a save back to specific Eras to redo older seasons in the NBA. On August 28, we’ll get a look at MyCareer, The City, and MyTeam, the competitive modes that generally drive sales of the 2K series. We haven’t gotten any real teases about these modes, so it’ll be cool to get a first look.

Last up, we’ll get the reveal of NBA 2K24‘s Season 1 on September 4. With the game launching later that week, it’ll serve as the kick-off for the final week of hype. It’s likely that 2K will do what it always does and start revealing giveaways for copies of the game, Virtual Currency to use in MyCareer and MyTeam, and even a few real-world pieces of NBA memorabilia.

Upward and Onward!

Kobe Bryant Names NBA 2K24 Cover Athlete

NBA 2K24 Cover Athlete

Last week we speculated that Kobe Bryant might be the NBA 2K24 cover athlete, this week that prediction came to fruition. Kobe Bryant will grace the cover of NBA 2K24.

Revealed in a tweet from NBA 2K, the Kobe Bryant Edition and Black Mamba Edition will be the two more expensive versions of this year’s game, what add-ons come with it have yet to be announced.

2K has yet to reveal the standard edition cover star which will most likely be a current NBA player.

Bryant’s appearance on the cover of NBA 2K24 was at least partially driven by his number 24 jersey, which he wore for most of his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. NBA 2K did something similar last year, putting Michael Jordan and his number 23 on the cover of 2K23.

Not much else has been revealed about NBA 2K24 so far, though the tweet notes that preorders are now open.

Lil Yachty Added As Playable Character In NBA 2K23

Lil Yachty 2K23

Lil Yachty is joining a line of rappers before him who received the honor of becoming a playable character by getting his very own Lil Yachty MyTEAM card.

NBA 2k and Yachty unveiled the card details on Thursday, which will be available in the game’s MyTEAM mode.

“A dream I couldn’t live out in real life is finally happening.. I’m hoopin .. I told dem I play like @shai … no kiippp lol,” the 25-year-old wrote on Instagram.

J. Cole, Polo G, Lil Durk, Lil Wayne and Jack Harlow became playable characters in the MyTeam Crossover series earlier this year, all given 89 ratings.

“I think it’s sick. I mean, obviously, I’m still flexing, but… I think it’s great if I could share this greatness with the world because it’s too much greatness,” the Georgia native said when asked what getting his own MyTEAM card would mean to him.

Yachty’s character shares his iconic beaded braids as he sports Travis Scott Air Jordan 1s and wears the number 21.

Fans will be able to earn Lil Yachty’s 89 overall player card for a limited time by completing his Spotlight Challenge.
