If you’re hoping to take your personalized player from the bench to NBA stardom, then the NBA 2K24 MyCareer mode will be where you’ll need to sink most of your time. However, this mode could be very different depending on whether you’re playing the past or current-gen version of the game.
Ahead of the NBA 2K24 release date, we’ve got an idea of what MyCareer will entail, especially considering it’s the same most years. However, if you want to know more about the features of the standard mode in this year’s release before you put in your NBA 2K24 pre-orders, here’s what you need to know.
NBA 2K24 MyCareer explained
NBA 2K24 MyCareer is basically the story experience, where your player (aptly titled MyPlayer) will go from being drafted for a team to a Hall of Famer. MyCareer is a standard mode for pretty much all NBA 2K games.
While exact details for 2K24’s version of MyCareer have yet to be revealed, we expect it to remain mostly the same as last year’s MyCareer. You’ll work your way up from being an amateur all the way to playing with some of the biggest A-listers in the NBA.
When going through the NBA 2K24 MyPlayer creation process, if its anything like NBA 2K23 (which it will, let’s be honest), you’ll select your characters’ build which will affect their ratings and attributes, so you’ll want to create your character based on your preferences. The MyCareer mode is said to be using an updated Badge system for this year’s entry, as well as a revamped player builder too.
Additionally, 2K has announced that NBA 2K24 MyCareer will be “streamlined so you can put the focus on your game”, seemingly in response to fan criticism of last year’s iteration.
NBA 2K24 MyCareer Neighborhood
The NBA 2K24 MyCareer location on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S is an all-new, rebuilt Neighborhood. This location has areas for you to play pick-up games, gyms, basketball courts, matches to earn NBA 2K24 VC, stores to buy new items for you player, and ways to earn rewards.
It is one of the biggest locations we have seen in the series and it is looking quite good from the reveal trailer.
NBA 2K24 MyCareer rewards
MyCareer will have a number of rewards included in the NBA 2K24 Season Pass. These are effectively NBA 2K24 battle passes and you can grab a ton of rewards for each six-week season in the year.
Everyone will have access to 40 rewards for MyCareer for free. But, with the Pro Season Pass or the Hall of Fame Season Pass, you can grab two additional rewards.
Should you play NBA 2K24 MyCareer?
Whether you’re a young upcomer looking to eventually make it to the NBA in real life, or an old baller hoping to relive the glory days before that career-ending college knee injury, NBA 2K24 MyCareer is the definitive way to experience the high school-to-NBA pipeline.
Additionally, unlike MyTeam, MyCareer definitely won’t require any extra investment into the game to maximize the value you get from it. While you won’t quite get to play as Jokic, you will be able to tell your pals you’re better than him – at least in-game.
Whether you decide to spend all of your time in the NBA 2K24 MyCareer mode or if you’re planning to invest hundreds of hours into NBA 2K24 MyTeam mode, we’ve got you covered. You can also find out about the details for NBA 2K24 crossplay, and find out if you can get a head start with NBA 2K24 early access. We know you’d rather get into the action sooner rather than later if possible.
