PC players looking forward to NBA 2K25 this year have some good news in store for them. For years now, NBA 2K players on PC couldn't enjoy the same experience as New Gen players did (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S). But now, it seems like those days will be over soon, as NBA 2K25 on PC will run like the New Gen versions of the game. What does this mean, and what new benefits can PC players look forward to this year? Let's find out.

Will NBA 2K25 on PC Run Like The New Gen Versions (PS5, Xbox Series X|S)?

Fortunately for PC players, NBA 2K25 will run like the New Gen versions of the game. This means you'll get to play a version of the game comparable to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions. Previously, PC players had to play Current gen versions of NBA 2K games, which offers the same experience as the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions.

What Does NBA 2K25 On New Gen Offer PC players?

Firstly, the new Gen version of NBA 2K25 offers ProPLAY Technology. This new tech uses real footage of actual NBA players to create more authentic player movement. In terms of gameplay, your experience will feel closer to the real game than ever before.

Additionally, MyCAREER players on NBA 2K25 PC can enjoy a new, more compact version of The City to explore. But if you're more of a MyNBA player, don't worry, because you'll be able to enjoy the different Eras, including a new sixth Era.

Lastly, players will have access to The W content, which is a mode dedicated to the WNBA teams and players. While NBA 2K25 will offer more exciting new changes, these three big features alone already sound great for the PC version.
