With NBA 2K23, players will be able to play alongside legends from the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s, such as Bird, Duncan, and Iverson, in addition to contemporary superstars like Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.
NBA 2K is a series that frequently offers the cover treatment to multiple stars each year, and the revelation of a sports game’s cover star is a topic of talk that never goes away. This year, four athletes are featured on three separate covers.
Devin Booker, a prominent player for the Phoenix Suns, is seen making a layup on the game’s most popular cover. Another Phoenix great, Diana Taurasi, will share the cover of the game’s WNBA Edition with Seattle Storm star Sue Bird. There is also a more expensive edition of the game that includes the greatest of all time, Michael Jordan, which we’ll go over in more detail below in the preorder section.
Players can travel back in time to as far as 1983 in this year’s MyNBA mode, which is the series’ take on a seasons-long Franchise mode. Players have the ability to permanently change the NBA’s past and future from four different beginning points: the Jordan era, the Shaq era, the Kobe period, and the present. Michael Jordan is selected by the Celtics, and Magic Johnson is traded to the Bucks. As you play season after season, the decisions you make now will have an impact for years to come.
The Jordan Challenge is returned for the first time since it initially appeared in NBA 2K11. This time, the mode will be more immersive in addition to expanding from 10 challenges to 15. Reliving Jordan’s games from the 1980s and 1990s will incorporate visual filters and other touches, similar to MyNBA Eras, to put players in the appropriate setting and era. There are also ads and stadia from different eras, as well as classic broadcasts complete with an on-screen scoreboard and special commentary teams.
