NBA 2K22 Season 2 is starting this week and is promising to add new content across MyCAREER, MyTEAM and The W for those on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
Season 2 also features the first music label partnership with Columbia Records, although that might just prove a pleasant distraction when compared to the main features included in the game’s next major update.
NBA 2K22 Season 2 has the tagline Build Your Empire and focuses on Michael Jordan’s rise to legend status in MyCareer.
A message from 2K explains: “When Michael Jordan joined the Chicago Bulls in 1984, the team’s reputation wasn’t anywhere close to what it is today. The Bulls were searching for their star player, and they found one in MJ, who carried them on his path to becoming a legend.
“In Season 2, you’re the hero; whether you’re climbing the ladder to NBA stardom, running the streets, or building your dream team, anyone can be the next Michael Jordan.
“We all start from humble beginnings, but now it’s time to thrust yourself into the spotlight and achieve glory.
“Coming to both the City [PlayStation 5 | Xbox Series X/S] and the Neighborhood [PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC], players will have the opportunity to earn an all-new variety of content and goodies by levelling up with XP. Build Your Empire and accumulate more fame and rewards as a result.”
Rebirth is also making its debut in NBA 2K22 MyCAREER and gives players the opportunity to jump to a 90 overall on new-gen or skip 10 pre-completed MyPOINTS levels on current-gen.
This can be achieved after earning the Rebirth reward. For new-gen players, you must first obtain the quest from ATM by the NBA Store and Club 2K before you can begin completing 10 3v3 or 10 2v2 City games with a 90 overall rating or higher to unlock Rebirth.
Current-gen players will need to complete 10 3v3 games once they reach a 90 overall rating to earn Rebirth.
But MyCareer is just one of a number of areas of the game that is getting new content this week, with 2K confirming fresh features in other areas.
MyTEAM will soon feature a Level 1 Free Agent Michael Jordan that will lead players’ starting lineups, while reaching Level 40 will allow gamers to gain a Pink Diamond Kevin Garnett.
MyTEAM also introduces new NBA 75 Domination Tier and Series I Cards and the first-ever Player Coach Cards as a reward for completing each tier in the NBA 75 Domination Tier.
Meanwhile, The W is getting a new Seasonal Clothing Bundle, 2K Breakthrough Gear, and more.
