Offensive Gameplay updates

With gameplay updates coming to NBA 2K23 one of the most notable changes came to builds and your MyPLAYER.

The development team stated that the major goals for the Player Builder were refinement, polish, and balance. The idea is to ensure each build is fun, balanced, and fully customizable.

GAMEPLAY UPDATES: The latest Courtside Report revealed a ton of information

Another huge addition to the build system is that animation purchases will now be account-bound rather than specific to one save file.

Now, your NBA 2K23 jump shot animations will transfer between each build in MyCAREER, provided that the allowed size and animation match.

Current gen users are also no longer bound to the pie chart system, allowing better ways for players to customize their MyCAREER player.
