NBA 2K18 Gets New (Semi) Open World Mode, The Neighborhood

A brand new open world basketball game?

Posted By | On 01st, Sep. 2017

2K Games continues to be hugely ambitious with its NBA 2K series. Yesterday, the company announced a brand new game mode- The Neighborhood, a mode that combines features from MyPARK, Pro-Am, and MyCAREER to create a semi open world shared world experience for players.

Players can participate in several events at multiple venues, and level their custom character up, earning multiple prizes along the way, too. It looks like the natural evolution of a sports game, at least on the actual player end, as opposed to the manager end- I can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the actual game (and I have to imagine that other sports games will appropriate this in the coming years, too).

NBA 2K18 is due out later this year for the PS3 and Xbox 360, will more sophisticated and full featured versions coming to PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Make sure to check out the trailer for the new mode below.
