NBA 2K22 Update 1.07 fixes Rebirth mechanic

NBA 2K22 Update 1.07 has begun to deploy, and so far it looks like this may have been a current gen only patch with bug fixes for those on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The biggest one apparently getting remedied is a dreaded glitch affecting the new Rebirth mechanic on current gen, which many players are reporting has now been fixed.

We've got full details and patch notes here for NBA 2K22 Update 1.07.

NBA 2K22 MyCAREER: Next Gen vs Current Gen

If you received NBA 2K22, one of the biggest factors in how you'll be playing is whether you're getting the game on a next gen console (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S) or a current gen platform (everything else).

On next gen, you'll find your MyCAREER fully integrated with The City, and this fully online GTA-like environment allows you to explore a large open area filled with other players.

BRIGHT LIGHTS, BRIGHT FUTURE: NBA 2K22 MyCAREER can take you to the very top of The City on next gen

MyCAREER in The City focuses heavily on quests that will carry you around to different challenges, give you ways to grow your brand and make extra money, and all the while allow you to pursue and improve your NBA career.

MyCAREER is very different on current gen in that it doesn't actually link with Neighborhood on the new Cancha Del Mar cruise ship, but rather is a stand-alone narrative more akin to past years in MyCAREER.

If you're still getting used to navigating The City, you can check out our locations guide here to see where some of the most important places are found.

NBA 2K22 Seasons will also affect MyCAREER

While we've seen versions of Seasons in the past, they primarily were about MyTEAM in NBA 2K21, and that's changed this year.

SEASON 2: Build Your Empire is the second of nine Seasons in NBA 2K22

NBA 2K22 Seasons provide a challenging twist and update for MyCAREER as well, including resetting a Season Level when each new one arrives, which allows any players who had maxed out the previous season to get new challenges and rewards as they level up.

There can be a mix of seasonal content, new NBA 2K22 Locker Codes, and other ways to revitalize The City and The Neighborhood with each new event.

Things kicked off with Season 1: Call to Ball, and they've now transitioned into Season 2: Build Your Empire with significant inspiration from Michael Jordan's legendary Chicago Bulls squad.
