On the pitch there are changes in the interaction between offensive and defensive. More information on what's new and gameplay improvements in NBA 2K22 was communicated this week. According to Visual Concepts, it will be easier as an attacker this year to play off the defenders. Players who are familiar with the controls will be able to use new and familiar tricks and techniques to deceive their opponents. For this reason, changes appear to have been made to the defensive, including the block or the press command.
The seasonal live service structure now affects most areas of the game, not just Myteam (by the way, draft mode is returning for this game variant). So in the months after the launch, we can expect a lot of additional content, such as cosmetic items, modes and the like. Like last year, there will be two quite different versions of NBA 2K22 MT, which differ from each other depending on the platform.
If you're on a previous generation console or on a PC, the social hub area is again significantly smaller than it is on the NBA 2K22 MT for PS5 and Xbox Series. Last-gen users are on the move on a cruise ship that stops at various stations throughout the year and offers a shore leave. If you play on the latest consoles, you'll have access to a quest system in a bustling city that will give you more creative challenges. Incidentally, Rookieville will not be part of NBA 2K22.
The campaign will merge with this social part of the game so that your professional successes are also reflected in your private life (in the game). After work on the basketball court, for example, you can shop for clothes in town, visit your agent or see what other people in your neighborhood are up to. There will be a more traditional career mode on the older consoles that is separate from the rest of the experience.
Since it can still be very difficult to get your hands on the new consoles in many places, 2K points out that all Myteam advances, currency systems (VC coins, Myteam points and tokens) will be carried over between console generations from the same manufacturer can. If you want to switch between devices, you have to make sure when purchasing a version of the game that allows cross-platform access to NBA 2K22.
If you need a more detailed overview of all these functions, you can read here at this point. More information on the latest edition of the annual basketball game is expected in August and early September.
