Today, 2K Games revealed the brand new career mode for its newest NBA game, NBA 2K18. The Neighborhood combines features from MyPARK, Pro-Am, and MyCAREER to create a shared world experience for players to compete in.
In The Neighborhood, players will bring their created ballers into a neighborhood environment shared by other users. The new mode features several venues to level up, improve your ratings, and earn awesome prizes. A new trailer was released today showcasing The Neighborhood and all of its cool new features.
Additionally, through Irving’s Instagram, we got a good look of the star point guard donning his new jersey in NBA 2K18.
The short, but sweet teaser opens with a full view of the Boston Celtics’ home arena, TD Garden. We then get a close-up view of the front and back of Irving’s home uniform. The teaser ends with the official first-look of the former Cavs point guard on the Celtics in NBA 2K18. Check out the video for yourself:
Former Cleveland Cavaliers starting point guard, Kyrie Irving, was officially traded to the Boston Celtics last week. This caused a stir in the NBA 2K community since the NBA 2K18 cover star would not appear on his actual team. Promptly after the trade, 2K Games released a statement revealing that a second cover of Irving in a Celtics uniform would be released at a later date.
Recently, 2K Games announced former NBA all-stars “The Black Mamba” Kobe Bryant and “The Big Ticket” Kevin Garnett would appear as guest commentators in the latest addition to the NBA 2K series. The trailer showcasing the two player’s broadcasting skills also gave us our very first look of Irving in action with the Boston Celtics.
NBA 2K18 will launch for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Switch on September 19.
