NBA 2K24: Season 2 Courtside Report

An alien life force has been detected in the NBA and it’s touched down in San Antonio; he goes by the name of Victor Wembanyama. The only explanation for the newcomer’s massive frame, freakishly good handles, and unguardable jumpshot is that he’s from the future, where society has figured out how to create the prototypical basketball player, meaning the future has arrived in Season 2 of NBA 2K24.

Whether your MyPLAYER possesses the scoring versatility of Wembanyama or excels in a shifty dribbling and slashing to the basket, you can compete and earn out-of-this-world rewards in Season 2. Climbing the Season ladder is faster than ever, allowing you to earn cosmetic MyCAREER items and powerful MyTEAM cards and boosts at the same time. Strike fear into the hearts of the opposition and chase spooky rewards to get in the Halloween spirit this Season.

MyCAREER

The all-new City on New Gen and Neighborhood on Current Gen welcomed players to breathtaking, coastal settings to roam around, with courts and activities around every corner. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll be able to continue your pursuit of G.O.A.T. status, accumulate XP, and earn thematic rewards to flaunt on New Gen and Current Gen.

As you climb the Season rewards ladder from Level 1 to Level 40, you’ll have the chance to earn banners, shot meters, 2XP coins, a Level 20 Slime BMX Bike, and more, including some in game wearable gear. On New Gen and Current Gen consoles, players who reach Level 30 will receive a Mascot Costume in MyCAREER and a Legendary Path Wheel Spin in MyTEAM, thanks to cross-progression across modes. Once you reach Level 40, though, New Gen players will earn a Gold Floor Setter and Current Gen players will earn an Extra Badge Point.

Season 2 of MyCAREER is packed with content and rewards, but there’s still a lot to explore and experience in The City and The Neighborhood. Prepare for the NBA regular season by heading over to The REC for some pickup games and 5v5 fun!

MyTEAM

Season 1 of MyTEAM cooked up some dynamic lineup variations and gave you plenty to collect to tipoff the year, but Season 2 is upping the ante with as the NBA tips off its season. Whether you’re playing solo in Triple Threat and Domination or challenging fellow players in Triple Threat Online and Unlimited, earning XP and climbing the rewards ladder with cross progression has never been easier. With that said, let’s dive into what’s happening in Season 2!

Everyone’s strategy is different, but a towering roster featuring versatile bigs is always going to be tough to defend, which is why you should insert the Level 1 Free Agent Victor Wembanyama card into your lineup. The international prospect has long been touted as one of the best prospects since LeBron James was drafted back in 2003. With a rare combination of size, speed, and a deep bag of offensive wizardry, the San Antonio Spurs’ rookie is poised for big things.

As a standalone talent, Wemby can hold it down on both ends of the floor for any squad. Reach Level 40 to earn Diamond Wilt Chamberlain and you’ll have an intimidating pair of skilled Centers to face other teams with. Force opposing players to pick their poison as you hit midrange jumpers and unleash a barrage of dunks. Wemby and Chamberlain are just two of the amazing rewards you can earn during Season 2 of NBA 2K24.

By unlocking the Pro Pass for Season 2, you will add Amethyst Donovan Mitchell to your collection along with a Hall of Fame Hyperdrive badge card. Mitchell echoed the scoring prowess of Wilt last NBA season, dropping an impressive 71 points in a game, and is ready to lead the way for your lineup into the competitive modes of MyTEAM. Reaching Level 40 of the Pro Pass will unlock an alternate artwork for Level 40 Wilt Chamberlain featuring a custom nameplate to showcase your completion of Season 2.

Some of the other featured rewards for Season 2 include: Diamond Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as the Ultimate Season Reward, Amethyst Terry Dischinger earned by getting the Ruby Player Rewards in all 3 Rounds of Salary Cap in Season 2, and at Season Level 35 an Amethyst Coach Gregg Popovich card.

To liftoff into Season 2, some amazing legends will be represented with new and powerful Diamond cards. In two new premium collections, you can pick up Diamond Tim Duncan and Diamond Carmelo Anthony as Collection Rewards or as Special Inserts in the Pack Market. Season 2 will also launch with a Diamond Michael Jordan available both as a Special Insert in the Pack Market, and directly in Player Market!

For the next six weeks, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to earn XP with Double XP events and improve your collection with NBA greats and MyTEAM legends. We’re also very excited for the upcoming events in MyTEAM Season 2, including one based around the upcoming In- Season Tournament at the start of the NBA season.
