NBA 2K21 is already putting in quite a few upgrades for its next-gen versions. We’ve seen updated gameplay and a new women’s version of MyPlayer. However, the updates aren’t stopping there. Today, the team at 2K Sports announced an update to The Neighborhood. First introduced as The Park back in 2K14, it’s grown into the fan-favorite place it is today. However, with next-gen, the team is exploding the area out into its own gigantic city. Check it out below.

The City in NBA 2K21 sounds absolutely massive. There are tons of buildings and areas for you to explore. From Rookieville to the Event Center there is so much to see. They even have quest-giving NPCs to give The City a bit of RPG flair. It’s quite the spectacle that I’m sure fans will love to check out next week.

NBA 2K21 also brings back Affiliations to The City. These are four different factions that players can join in the journey to the top of the basketball heap. Each Affiliation has its own borough for you to ball in and, if you become popular enough in your faction, you can become the mayor.

This position gets to decide things like your team’s court design and uniform selection. Plus, they can create custom playlists for your faction. It’s not a permanent position though, as you’ll need to win a vote every six weeks to stay in power.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

There is a ton of info to take in about The City. Thankfully, 2K Sports has a very detailed blog post on everything coming next week. NBA 2K21 is already out on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It hits Xbox Series X on November 10 and PS5 on November 12.
