This week, we have started to get a lot of information about the next entry in the popular NBA 2K series. Yesterday, we learned that NBA legend Kobe Bryant will grace the cover of NBA 2K24. Now, we are starting to get more information about new features coming to the game.
NBA 2K24 to feature Crossplay, and more!
One of the most requested features is finally coming to NBA 2K24. Crossplay will be available in NBA 2K24, but there is a catch. Crossplay will only be available on current-gen consoles. This includes PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. As we have learned, the PC version of NBA 2K24 will be the last-gen version, so it will not be included in crossplay. We are not yet sure which modes will feature crossplay as an option.
This is a welcome addition that players have been wanting for a while. This is just the latest major sports game to add crossplay in some form. Just last month, it was announced that Madden NFL 24 will also introduce crossplay for the first time.
A new gameplay system is coming to NBA2K24 in the form of PROPlay. PROPlay is described as “a groundbreaking new technology that directly translates NBA footage into NBA 2K24 gameplay.” It seems like this technology will use actual NBA footage to make the animations and gameplay look more realistic.
A new game mode has been added to honor Kobe Bryant returning as the NBA 2K cover athlete. The new Mamba Moments game mode allows you to relive some of the most iconic moments of Kobe Bryant’s career. The game’s pre-order page describes says “Revisit his early career triumphs as a young phenom, and progress through his transcendent journey from elite scorer to one of the greatest players of all time.” This mode will probably be similar to the very popular Jordan Challenge mode from NBA 2K23.
NBA 2K24 is now available for pre-order. The game will be released on September 8, 2023, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
