Players looking to start their NBA career before NBA 2K17 hits shelves on September 20 are in luck. The Prelude is out today on Xbox One and PS4.

This downloadable preview gives players a chance to jump into 2K’s MyCAREER mode ahead of NBA 2K17’s full release.

The Prelude starts players off in college, where they are tasked with working their way through the grind of the NCAA.

The Prelude also includes 2KU, NBA 2K17’s new tutorial. 2KU is narrated by US Olympic basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski.

More information on The Prelude can be found here.

While The Prelude will give players a taste of MyCAREER mode, those itching to get their hands on the full game can do so by pre-ordering the Early Tip-Off Edition. The NBA 2K17 Early Tip-Off Edition will give players access to the full 2K experience four days (September 16) before the game’s world release. The Early Tip-Off Edition is only available at participating retailers and online vendors, and supplies are limited.

SGO has you covered for all things 2K related.
