It's finally here, at long last! Just a few days before the release of NBA 2K22, we get to see what The City will look like on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S! There are some fantastic moments that highlight all of the different areas of the city, but we're not convinced by the nickname that your character is given.
The City MyCAREER reveal and trailer for NBA 2K22 are on their way.
Despite the fact that the release date for NBA 2K22 is less than one week away on September 10, there is still a lot to learn about the game.
The two newly interconnected game modes, The City and MyCAREER, are perhaps the most important missing piece of the puzzle. In addition to Neighborhood, which is getting a cruise ship and leaving current gen players without MyCAREER integration, the unfortunate third wheel of NBA 2K22 will be Neighborhood.
Players on current-generation consoles will get the traditional more cinematic MyCAREER experience, but The City is breaking new ground by combining the single player mode with the online hit RPG-style game mode.
When we first learned about The City and MyCAREER during the MT 2K22 reveal in July, we were told that more information would be revealed in early September.
In fact, NBA 2K22 has already announced that The City and MyCAREER will be featured during the week of September 6, 2021, which continues to be true.
The City and MyCAREER will both be revealed on the same day and at the same time.
Several other reveals have already taken place, and they've largely adhered to a Tuesday/Thursday release schedule, with two major reveals each week on the road to launch. Seasons and the WNBA received the same treatment during the week of August 23, but gameplay was suspended on Monday, August 30, during the week of August 23.
At the very least, the Gameplay Trailer was released, though the full Gridiron Notes reveal didn't happen until Tuesday. There's no shortage of speculation that the Gameplay Trailer was released early due to a low-quality version of it being leaked earlier.
MyTEAM's reveal took place on Thursday, September 2, re-establishing their planned release frequency and setting the stage for a The City MyCAREER spotlight on September 7, 2021, which will take place on September 7, 2021.
While we aren't guaranteed to see a trailer, it's likely that 2K Sports will be eager to show off visual improvements to The City in the game mode's second year (and first full development cycle) with only a few days left to pre-order. Likewise, we're hoping that the fabled cruise ship Neighborhood receives at least a visual nod in the trailer or in photos that are shared, so that current-gen players can get a sense of what this legendary ship will be like.
