NBA 2K18

Hit the hardtop in NBA 2K18



Shape your MyPLAYER and write your own narrative, build your dream MyTEAM, take control of the league, or prove you're the best of the best by competing against players from around the globe.

NBA 2K18 continues the franchise's tradition as "the gold standard of basketball simulation" (Sports Gamers Online) with unrivalled realism and true NBA gameplay.




However you want to play, plenty of action awaits you on the court! Create your MyPLAYER and develop your own NBA journey in MyCAREER, or collect player cards to build your own all-star MyTEAM.

Create your MyPLAYER and develop your own NBA journey in MyCAREER. Build your career in NBA games, hit the courts in the Playground or join the Pro-Am circuit. Featuring new MyPLAYER upgrade and endorsement systems and so much more.


The Road to 99

NBA 2K18 also introduces the Road to 99, the overarching meta-game that rewards you for improving your MyPLAYER’s overall rating, regardless of which modes you choose to play. Featuring a unified badge system across Pro-Am, Park and your NBA journey in MyCAREER, your attributes, animations and badges all combine to define your play style on your road to a 99 overall rating.




Build your all-star MyTEAM with new card types. Collect and compete with player cards featuring NBA legends from yesterday and today. Construct a salary-capped team for the all-new Super Max season mode, or draft cards for a 5 v 5 tournament in the new Pack & Playoffs mode.


The Neighborhood


Explore the Neighborhood with your MyPLAYER, interacting with other MyPLAYERS and characters, going head-to-head on the courts and more!

The Neighborhood is unlike anything ever seen in NBA 2K or any other sports career mode before. MyPLAYERs live in a neighbourhood environment with several locations in the city blocks to visit, flush with other MyPLAYERS and characters with whom to interact.

Experiences and ratings revolve around your actions, whether it’s running into Kyrie Irving while getting a shave at the barbershop, competing on the courts in The Playground, getting inked at the tattoo parlor, listening to the latest beats or showing off the latest gear to your friends while strolling the block. Your experience is entirely shaped by how you compete, allowing you to reap the rewards of playing NBA 2K18 the way you enjoy it most.


Elite gameplay


The new motion system engine brings player control to a new level of realism. Now, dribbling and off the ball movement are no longer driven by animations. This ground-breaking technology dynamically creates animations to deliver the best gameplay experience possible. You are now in complete control.


Special guest commentary

The biggest roster of broadcasting talent in sports video game history gets even bigger. Legends Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett join the booth on a rotating basis to lend their expertise to the broadcast.


Legendary teams


The greatest players in NBA history from all 30 teams, together in all-time franchise rosters for the very first time. Compete in Play Now to decide once and for all which franchise’s all-time greats reign supreme.

Plus, with MyLEAGUE and MyGM, take control of an NBA franchise or the entire league!
