Season 6: new content
Zero Gravity will offer huge updates to MyCAREER, MyTEAM, The W*, and ‘First Fridays,’ and brand tracks for the soundtrack, incorporating a slew of new features and ways to play.
Here is all of the new content that will be included in the newly arrived season:
- The W*: “WNBA action returns in one month; head to The W Online and prepare for the league’s 26th season by competing against players from around the globe, and earning all-new rewards! The WNBA has seen some amazing talent walk through its doors over the past two-and-a-half decades, including former player and now-assistant coach Katie Smith, as well as former No. 3 overall pick Cheryl Ford. Before Smith transitioned to coaching, she had a 14-year career in the WNBA, made seven All-Star appearances, won two WNBA championships, and was crowned WNBA Finals MVP in 2008. Ford also hoisted the WNBA championship trophy in 2003, 2006, and 2008. In Season 6: Zero Gravity, add WNBA legends, Smith and Ford, to your contact list by reaching the Hall of Fame tier. In addition, earn new 2K Breakthrough Gear, an Extra Badge Point, VC, a Seasonal Clothing Bundle, and a Custom Green Release. Load up for another season of NBA 2K22 and the start of the WNBA season.”
- MyCAREER: “Get ready for liftoff. As the Playoff picture heats up, so is NBA 2K22. We’re six seasons in and we’re not taking our foot off the gas, bringing you fresh environment updates, more original rewards, and a new event to keep you engaged around The City and the Cancha Del Mar. For the next six weeks, blast off on an epic journey through the NBA 2K22universe, and traverse its many courts in search of the best competition in the galaxy. Before you go, we’re sending you into space with a reminder to complete various quests, so you can climb your way to Level 40 this Season. Keep your eyes on the prize–a Bunny Suit–and avoid getting sucked into any distracting black holes that may cause you to spiral out of control. If you maintain your course, you’ll be rewarded with a new animated item, a lightning BMX, and more apparel for your wardrobe. There’s much to look forward to this season, especially a new excursion event.”
- MyTEAM: “Are you ready for Zero Gravity in MyTEAM? With 99 overall Dark Matter reward cards spreading throughout the mode, there are great ways for new and existing MyTEAM players to upgrade their best lineups and expand their collections.
- All year, MyTEAM has brought what is going on in the real NBA into NBA 2K22 with Moments player cards and agendas. Right now, you can finish up the final Moments of the Month Agenda set to earn Dark Matter Ja Morant before it ends on April 12th, because once the Play-In Tournament begins for the NBA, moments in MyTEAM will be changing. For the 2022 NBA Playoffs, MyTEAM will be following the action with new Lifetime Agenda Groups for each round. These groups will expand as postseason games are played for you to match stat lines and play along with your collection. After the conclusion of the Play-In Tournament and the subsequent rounds, the Agenda Group will be completed with Moments Cards for all the teams moving on in the Playoffs!”
- Colors Studios Additional Soundtrack: “Shoot for the stars with a soundtrack that’s out of this world, courtesy of Colors Studios. Featuring gifted musicians from different continents, feel their rhythmic flows on the court and around The City. Colors Studios is committed to promoting unique and distinguishable sounds, unwilling to categorize or place its artists in a box. The NBA has adopted a positionless mentality and it’s very much in line with the values of Colors Studios, making them a perfect complement to NBA 2K22.”
