NBA 2K23 Rebirth

Want to know how to unlock Rebirth in NBA 2K23? We’ve got you.

Making its series debut in NBA 2K19, the Rebirth system is back in both the Current and Next Gen versions of NBA 2K23 MyCAREER. For those looking to get a head start on creating the build they want, here’s the breakdown of how to unlock Rebirth save files.

How to Unlock Rebirth in NBA 2K23: Current and Next Gen

To unlock the ability to use Rebirth save files, players on both Current and Next must complete the “Rebirth” quest.

For those on Current Gen, the process is simple. Once you hop into the G.O.A.T. Boat for the first time, players will receive a message from Ronnie2K about hitting 90 overall.

At that point, players will given the Rebirth quest, in which all they need to is hit 90 OVR to unlock the feature.

For those on Next Gen, the process is more difficult, but does come with some additional rewards along the way.

After finishing the NBA Summer League game, players will receive a bunch of intro quests, including the Rebirth quest.

The Rebirth quest on Next Gen still requires players to speak with Ronnie2K, but on four separate occasions.

To get the quest started, refer to the map at the top of the article.

Each time players go through a cutscene with the community manager, they’ll receive the next step in the quest, which is to simply meet the OVR milestones.

  1. Reach 65 OVR: Unlocks Ronnie2K & Sophie T-Shirt
  2. Reach 75 OVR: Unlocks Custom Spawn Locations
  3. Reach 88 OVR: Unlocks the ability to go Shirtless
  4. Reach 90 OVR: Unlocks Rebirth
What is Rebirth in NBA 2K23?

Rebirth saves, which are unlimited, will start players off with all previously earned gameplay-related quest prizes carried over, up to 25 Badge points already earned and the opportunity to upgrade to a 90 OVR.

Although Rebirth builds technically do have a head start in Badges and Attribute upgrade progress, players will still have to spend upwards of 200,000 VC to actually get their builds maxed out.

NBA 2K23 MyCareer Preview

NBA 2K23 MyCareer Preview

Rejoice!, we are finally rid of grinding out tutorial-level games to start MyCareer.

In NBA 2k23’s MyCareer mode you get drafted directly to the NBA, to a team of your choice, then immediately begin your pro career.

“Everyone in The City, all the pundits, everyone wanted your team to draft this player named Shep. Shep Owens,” executive producer Erick Boenisch commented in a recent interview. “So instantly, you get on stage, Adam Silver’s shakes your hand and the entire audience is booing. They don’t like you right from the jump.”

“They wanted Shep; Shep is the college star, he’s the flashy guy, he’s the athletic guy, he’s the charismatic guy,” Boenisch continued. “And you’ll find that as soon as you go out into The City, the people of The City wanted Shep, too.”

There will be Shep murals on the walls of The City’s buildings; people will be wearing Shep’s clothing labels, too. “So, the major part of the narrative this year is overcoming that adversity of how everyone reacts to you, and winning over the citizens of The City,” Boenisch said.

Boenisch stated that players will have several main and side-quest channels to win over the public.

“There’s a new business section you can focus on; you can do all of them, you can do none of them,” Boenisch said.

“This is hands down our biggest MyCareer story that we’ve ever done in the past; it’s insanely large,” Boenisch vowed. “We had a different actor in mo-cap every day for, like, six months. It’s crazy.” Celebrity cameos this year include J. Cole, along with his Dreamville Records label. Additionally, Hall-of-Famer Kevin Garnett and seven-time all-star Tracy McGrady show up to mentor the player, representing different professional paths the player can choose. Kendrick Perkins’ player-hating ball returns, with ESPN’s J.J. Redick and cover star Devin Booker involved as analysts.

Sounds like players will have a lot to look forward to in NBA 2K23 MyCareer.
