NBA 2K21 New MyCAREER Trailer and Details; Introduces 2K Beach as its Newest Neighborhood

Let's hit the beach!

2K today revealed details about the new NBA 2K21 MyCAREER mode and Neighborhood for current-generation consoles leading up to game launch on September 4. NBA 2K21 features a new MyCAREER storyline that takes your player from high school through college - incorporating ten officially-licensed college programs - and eventually the NBA. Players will also be able to soak up the sun at 2K Beach, the newest Neighborhood coming to NBA 2K21!


In NBA 2K21, this year’s narrative, The Long Shadow, tells the story of Junior – the son of a beloved baller who faces the challenges of trying to make it to the NBA, balancing legacy while carving his own path through high school to college. Making this journey more authentic to real life, NBA 2K21 will feature 10 officially licensed college programs to choose from in the story: Michigan State, UConn, Florida, Gonzaga, Syracuse, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, UCLA, Villanova University and West Virginia. Players will be joined by MyCAREER’s star-studded cast with performances from Jesse Williams, Dijmon Hounsou, Mirelle Enos, Michael K. Williams, cover athletes Damian Lillard and Zion Williamson, and more.

2K Neighborhood

2K Beach is the latest location in the Neighborhood, where players live out their day-to-day 2K basketball experience. Jump into 3v3 streetball runs with your crew, 5v5 ProAm games for something more serious and take part in plenty of events providing even more reasons to come back all year long.

Check out all the new details in the NBA 2K21 MyCAREER and Neighborhood Courtside Report here.

Civilization VI's August 2020 update now available, patch notes shared

A new world to explore

Civilization VI's August 2020 update is now available. You can check out the full patch notes for this update below.

Included in this update is the new Natural Wonder picker, which lets you customize the Natural Wonders that will (or won’t) show up in your game, and the Tech and Civics Shuffle mode, a new way of playing that randomizes your path forward on the Tech and Civics trees. Read on for the full list of what’s in today’s free game update.

While we were testing the August game update, we encountered an issue that was causing PC and Mac/Linux cross-play to become desynced around the mid-game point. For now, we’ll be turning off cross-play while we work with our partners at Aspyr to investigate a fix and we’ll be sharing updates as soon as we get them. Everyone will still receive the update tomorrow and Mac/Linux users will still be able to play with each other; we wanted to make sure this didn’t come as a surprise and really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding here.


Tech and Civic Shuffle Mode

This new game mode adds variety to the tech tree, as it shuffles techs and civics within their historical eras, leading to different costs and prerequisites than normal. The resulting trees are the same for all players. Techs and civics are also hidden until a prerequisite is earned, preserving the mystery of discovery all the way until the end of the game.

Natural Wonder Picker

Sick of the Bermuda Triangle? Want to break the Delicate Arch? In Advanced Setup, you can now bring up a new menu to choose which Natural Wonders you would like to include in your next game. Wonders checked are not guaranteed to be in your next game, rather, they are part of the pool of Wonders that will then be randomly selected and placed.


Items in the list below apply to the Gathering Storm ruleset only.



Removed the free population amenity.
Added an amenity to the palace.
Increased the Golf Course amenities by 1.
Decreased all negative amenity level thresholds by 1. Increase Happy and Ecstatic’s minimum by 2.

Displeased at -3 to -2
Unhappy at -5 to -4

o Negative amenities non-food yield decrease changes:

NBA 2K21 Switch Demo Now Available

An eShop slam dunk

2K today released the NBA 2K21 current-generation demo for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. This year’s demo includes four playable teams. Tap into your Mamba mentality with Kobe Bryant and the All-Time Lakers, experience greatness with the iconic Bill Russell and the All-Time Celtics or dominate the court through Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kawhi Leonard with NBA title contenders Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.

The NBA 2K21 demo offers ballers an opportunity to try out some of the latest gameplay innovations that are detailed in the Current-Gen Gameplay Courtside Report. From major innovations to the Pro Stick to a redesigned shooting system, NBA 2K21 features plenty of new upgrades, improvements and changes that bring the series to a new level.

Additionally, the demo heralds the return of the ever popular MyPLAYER Builder. Select your position, set your attributes and get a first look at what type of builds will be able in NBA 2K21. There's plenty of new things to check out, including the new addition of oversized 6'8 point guards, and your created build carries over from the demo into the full game when it launches on Sept. 4, enabling you to jump in right away. Whether you want to slash to the basket like Russell Westbrook, create space and nail jumpers like Jayson Tatum or command the court from the high post like Nikola Jokić, everything is game in NBA 2K21.

Lastly, due to the delay in the start of the 2020-21 NBA season, NBA 2K is taking a new approach to the player ratings reveal for NBA 2K21. This year, NBA 2K will update player ratings upon the release of NBA 2K21 for next-generation consoles, following the completion of the 2019-20 NBA season, to ensure the ratings are reflective of the player’s performance this season. At that time, all updated NBA player ratings will be implemented across NBA 2K21 for current- and next-gen consoles.

More information on NBA 2K21 for next-gen consoles will be announced at a later date.
