One of the most notable new features of The City in NBA 2K22 is the visual feel of the surroundings. NBA 2K’s goal was to create an environment that would bring the MyCAREER online realm to life, from the way the lighting reflects off the buildings to the colorful monuments located throughout the city, and they succeeded in that.

New places

A big part of why NBA 2K22 was so successful with The City last year has to do with how many layers it provided for fans. They added new NPC types such as baristas, reporters, hip-hop/rap artists, and a few former NBA players. It brought a new level of interaction and expanded what you could do and achieve in your surroundings.


Becoming a legend in Seasons was a process, but NBA 2K22 made it worth it. While NBA 2K22 required gamers to reach level 40 in four different seasons to become a legend, it didn’t have to be consecutive, and the variety of new rewards fans received for completing each season was great. Additionally, Seasonal XP makes leveling up much easier and provides a better user experience.

Style and fashion

The NBA takes a lot of attention in terms of style and fashion, as many players illustrate each season. As a result, NBA 2K22 has gone the extra mile by bringing this to life in The City. Allowing you to partner with many different brands that provide discounts on merchandise, NBA 2K22 has added tons of new gear and made sure to release multiple apparel options throughout the season.

Less waiting

Probably the biggest advantage for those who have played The City or any of the neighborhood modes before is the wait to get on the court. Previously, the wait was too time-consuming and discouraged many fans. Well, NBA 2K22 did a much better job of it in The City, adding four new matchmaking buildings for all players to use 24/7.

In addition, NBA 2K22 has added new modes that will give you the opportunity to improve your skills. Whether it’s 3v3 vs. AI, 1v1 player vs. player, or cage matches, the new ways to play have given players much more flexibility to get on the court and have fun.
