Last year Visual Concepts released an early free demo for NBA 2K17 called The Prelude, which let you create a MyPlayer and then play through his college years before getting drafted. This early section of the game let you sample the gameplay and carry over your save if you wanted to buy the full game.
NBA 2K18 is getting its own Prelude come September 8, provided you are playing on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. 2K Sports hasn’t shared any details on what we’ll be playing just yet, but if you’re itching to see what NBA 2K18 has to offer, circle the date on your calendar.
The full game releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch (digitally), and PC on September 19. To learn more, read about the gameplay changes coming down the pipe this year, as well as the new tools for wannabe general managers in MyGM and MyLeague.
