City vs Neighborhood. Next-gen vs. current-gen. This is the battle in NBA 2K22 you get a pretty different package per generation of console. The City is available on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Neighborhood is on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. With The City you’ll get a new Quest system and NPCs. Neighborhood changes the location to a cruise ship with some off boat outings!
So you’ll want to play the game across both generations for the full experience. Thankfully there is cross progression with MyTEAM. Buying the Cross-Gen Digital Bundle with MyTEAM makes jumping between both generations easy to do.
When you’re done skateboarding through town and start playing basketball pay close attention to to the dribbling. They’ve modeled over 50 new signature styles from both the NBA and WNBA.
To keep the game feeling fresh they’ve also introduced First Fridays. Ever Friday new songs will be added to the soundtrack throughout the season. Tons of music labels are participating such as Columbia Records, Def Jam Recordings, Low Profile/Casual Records, Ninja Tune, and Warner Records. They’ll give you a mixture of both up-and-coming artists and world-renowned musicians.
Pretty cool to see NBA 2K22 continue to expand beyond the pure basketball game and more into a basketball lifestyle game. Can’t wait to see it keep growing!
