by newsup

The next installment of NBA 2K is on its way in September. NBA 2K22 will surely be a stellar basketball sim. Between online matches with up-to-date rosters, the MyPLAYER mode that lets you build your own player and get him to the top of the league, and the competitive card-collecting MyTEAM mode, there’s something for every NBA fan in this game.

Like previous 2K releases, we’re getting a handful of different versions of the game, each with its own cover and bonuses for pre-ordering. If you’re looking to get the game on day one to get ahead of the competition, you should definitely pre-order. Below we’re going to break down exactly what you’re getting with each edition, which all-star baller is on the cover, and where you can pre-order your preferred version of the game.

Where can I pre-order NBA 2K22?

The NBA 2K series is huge, so you’ll be able to pre-order the game at whichever major game retailer you prefer. Like any 2K release though, there are some different editions of NBA 2K22 that will come with different bonuses and covers, some of which are only available at select retailers. This year we’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of the NBA and the 25th anniversary of the WNBA, so there are some pretty special covers planned for the next installment of the series.

All pre-order bonuses are only available through September 9.
