NBA 2K21 Adds WNBA MyPlayer On PS5 and Xbox Series X
NBA 2K21 adds The W on next-gen consoles. The fully-featured WNBA version of MyPlayer will finally let players create their own superstar of the women's game.
Since the team at 2K Sports put the WNBA into its NBA series, many fans have been waiting for the company to add a women’s version of the popular MyPlayer mode. Today, they revealed that dream is finally coming to reality when NBA 2K21 launches on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The W will let players create their own WNBA player and turn her into one of the league’s greatest stars. Give the announcement trailer a watch below.
This is a great addition to NBA 2K21. We’ve slowly seen companies like 2K and EA Sports adding in different aspects of women’s basketball and soccer. Until now, EA had probably taken it the furthest by making women’s soccer such an integral part of The Journey’s story mode back in FIFA 19. However, we’ve yet to see anyone try fully capture the sport like 2K is doing here.
Not only can fans create their own WNBA superstar and guide their career, but they’ll also be able to hop online and test their skills. The W Online is a 3v3 multiplayer mode where you and some friends compete against other teams. It comes with its own exclusive court that will surely look phenomenal on next-gen hardware.
Of course, all the new WNBA additions are far from the only thing coming to the next-gen version of NBA 2K21. Players can expect improvements across the board. This is far from a visual update. Fortunately, fans don’t have to wait much longer to try it all out for themselves.
