A new year has arrived and a new NBA 2K24 season is also here. NBA 2K24 Season 4 has finally arrived and it delivered a lot of new content to the game.
The NBA 2K community is excited about NBA 2K24 Season 4, as players hope its content can revitalize the game. At the same time, 2K is hoping Season 4 helps them start 2024 with a bang, and captivate more players.
Season 4 introduced a new Season Pass, new events, and card programs, among many other types of content. So let's take an in-depth look at NBA 2K24 Season 4.
NBA 2K24 Season 4 release date
The NBA 2K24 Season 4 went live on Friday, 12 January, at around 11am ET/4pm GMT. This means players had until then to complete the NBA 2K24 Season 3 Pass or at least collect as many rewards as possible.
As normally happens when a new Season arrives at NBA 2K24, the game servers undergo a maintenance period. This is done to make sure all the NBA 2K24 Season 4 content goes live without any problems.
Season 4 rewards
As mentioned above, the NBA 2K24 Season 4 introduced a lot of new content, which hopefully was capable of injecting some life into the game.
The main theme of Season 4 is "Ball like an All-Star", and aims to celebrate the All-Star Game. Season 4 also brought back the Crossover Series, will celebrate the upcoming Lunar New Year, and introduced some great songs to 2K Beats.
In MyTEAM, players can earn rewards such as player and shoe packs, great cards, tokens, and more. As soon as players enter MyTEAM, they will receive a Free Agent Kareem Abdul-Jabbar card.
However, there are other great cards players will be able to earn as they progress in the Season 4 reward path. These cards are Diamond Dominique Wilkins, Diamond Coach Larry Bird, and the best of them all, 96 OVR Pink Diamond Magic Johnson.
As usual, Season 4 also brought many exciting rewards to MyCAREER and The W. MyCAREER players can earn unique apparel, such as mascot suits or a fox mask, and also 2XP coins. More importantly, new NBA player templates were added in Season 4. As for The W, players can earn many unique jerseys, shoes, and plenty of team boosts.
A new Season Pass was also introduced, so let's take a look at it.
NBA 2K24 Season 4 Pass
The Season 4 Pass maintains the same structure, with one free tier and two premium ones. The free Season 4 pass has 40 levels, while both premium passes have 80 levels, and include exclusive rewards.
Players who are willing to pay for the Season 4 Pro Pass will receive "Black Leather Pants, a Snowsuit, a Pink Diamond Carmelo Anthony MyTEAM Card, and a Season 4 Pro Pass Pack" right out of the gate.
The ability to pay to skip Season Pass levels continues, which is something the community has shown strong resentment for. This allows players to complete the Season 4 Pass with the single push of a button, and without having to play a game.
New tracks added to 2K Beats
Season 4 brought new songs and artists to NBA 2K24, with the popular 88Rising record label and its talented artists arriving at the game.
New tracks from Def Jam artists were also added, with some of them being unreleased songs!
Season 4 patch
To make sure the transition to Season 4 goes as smoothly as possible, 2K has released a new patch. This patch went live after the server restarts that were mentioned above.
It addressed plenty of bugs from the MyCAREER, MyTEAM, The City, and MyNBA modes, and also introduced some massive gameplay changes.
The Season 4 patch brought the following impactful gameplay changes:
- Reduced the effectiveness of the "Cut to Basket Pass"
- Resolved a rare hang that could occur when attempting an alley-oop at a very specific time
- Fixed another case that allowed uncalled double-dribble violations when using dribble emotes while posting up
- Addressed a rare hang that could occur in the Dunk Contest
These changes have the goal of vastly improving the gaming experience of the players, making NBA 2K24 the most enjoyable it has ever been. Hopefully, this will captivate players to come back.
