NBA 2K23 will arrive on September 9th and offers a solid benefit for those who opt for the $150 Premium Championship Edition. The package includes, among other things, one year of access to the NBA League Pass. If you’re an avid NBA viewer who plays the NBA 2K game every year, this is actually a solid deal since League Pass costs $15 a month.
The Championship Edition will have limited availability and includes some in-game goodies including XP boosts, all bonuses from the other versions and an exclusive Michael Jordan-themed go-kart. Speaking of Jordan, he’s featured on the cover of another high-end version of the game (he’s the sport’s most famous number 23, after all). The $100 Michael Jordan Edition includes 100,000 virtual currencies as well as perks available in the $80 Digital Deluxe Edition.
All of these editions provide access to the game on both current and previous generations of PlayStation and Xbox consoles. There is also a standard edition of NBA 2K23, that costs $60 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC and $70 for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Devin Booker is the cover star of both the standard and digital deluxe versions.
Fans in the US and Canada can purchase a WNBA Edition NBA 2K23 also. The Gamestop exclusive will feature Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird on the cover. And that’s not all. A special version of the Standard Edition will be available this fall, seemingly highlighting the connection between basketball culture and music. More details will be announced later. There will be six (6) issues of in total NBA 2K23.
New features in the game itself include the Jordan Challenges from NBA 2K11 go back. The 10 missions challenged players to recreate some of the most important moments in Jordan’s career, including scoring 69 points in a game. 2K Sports is rebuilding the original challenges from the ground up and adding five more including moments from Jordan’s Team USA career. 2K Sports will announce more information about this NBA 2K23including the Jordan Challenges, in August.
