NBA 2K24 is the next installment of the premier NBA video game basketball simulation series.

Celebrate 25 years of the award-winning NBA 2K series with a new, exclusive anniversary edition packed with content and rewards, including a 12-month subscription to NBA League Pass and a limited-time Summer League Pre-Order Bonus.

In addition, NBA 2K24 will introduce ProPLAY - a groundbreaking new technology that directly translates NBA footage into NBA 2K24 gameplay. ProPLAY delivers animations and movements via on-court NBA action for a generational leap in authenticity on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. More details on Mamba Moments and ProPLAY will be released later this summer. NBA 2K24 will offer three editions of the game in various digital and physical formats: a Kobe Bryant Edition, a legendary Black Mamba Edition, and an all new, exclusive 25th Anniversary Edition, which includes a 12-month subscription to NBA League Pass.
