Players can report to training camp early this year.
'NBA 2K17' is set to release September 20th, but players can lace up their shoes on September 9th. 2K Sports has announced that Visual Concept's basketball simulation will receive a free download called 'The Prelude.' The standalone download will let digital hoopsters start 'NBA 2K17's MyCareer mode early, as they attempt to boost their draft stock. The mode will also include a tutorial featuring Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski.
Progress from 'The Prelude' will carry over to 'NBA 2K17' once the game releases September 20th. "The Prelude was designed specifically to introduce new fans to our franchise, and give them an introduction to our legendary MyCareer mode that puts the user at the center of an epic basketball story," said Visual Concepts President Greg Thomas. "Veterans of NBA 2K will also love getting a head start on their MyCareer, so when the game launches they can be ready to jump in and compete."
'NBA 2K17' launches September 20th on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC..
