NBA 2K23 is now available for Playstation Plus Subscribers along with three other games. They were made available on the Playstation Store on Tuesday, June 6th, and will remain there until Monday, July 3rd.
NBA 2k23 is the same, classic basketball game experience we expect from 2K. It offers the same modes we've become accustomed to, like MyCareer, MyTeam, so on and so forth. It brought back the Michael Jordan Challenge, which had been absent from the series since NBA 2K11.
The next-gen editions of the game included a massive city that players could explore. Players on PS4 will return to the G.O.A.T. Boat once again, which features its own explorable areas.
While the game received favorable reviews from critics, fans were upset with the game's microtransaction system, stating it felt more “pay-to-win” than ever before. Additionally, fans also felt the newest installment's recent content drops have been rather shallow compared to content updates from previous titles.
NBA 2K23 is Take-Two Interactive's latest installment for their Basketball simulation video game series. The game released on September 9, 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The mobile version, NBA 2K23 Arcade Edition released for iOS back on October 18th, 2022.
