Finally, you can purchase the 75th Anniversary Edition for £84.99 / $99.99, which has the most significant in-game rewards and also includes the game on both PS4 and PS5.

Current Gen Game Modes

Unfortunately, we probably won't see newly innovated game modes like The City backtrack from next-gen to current-gen.

HANGING ON: They'll have to make up for The City's absence

However, we could see NBA 2K22 try to spice up existing modes like MyTEAM and MyPLAYER in order to make up for the lack of The City.

With supply still limited for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, NBA 2K22 will likely end up with significantly more players on current-gen, so 2K Sports can't neglect their current-gen improvements.

Cover athletes revealed

Tons of major news was dropped about NBA 2K22 today, including word that Luka Doncic will be this year's primary Standard Edition cover athlete.

Hit the courts in Pro Am on PS4

Pro Am is definitely receiving more attention this year, mainly due to The City not being brought to PS4. This should convince PS4 players to focus more on MyPLAYER and Pro Am modes.

As more features are revealed, it's apparent NBA 2K22 will have to bring features to current gen players too. Especially due to how hard it is to get your hands on a next gen system.
