NBA 2K23’s Season 4 patch notes have officially gone live, outlining updates to MyCareer, MyTeam, and much more.

NBA 2K23’s third seasonal update brought winter to The City and The G.O.A.T. Boat. Prior to that, Season 2 introduced Dark Matter cards and 20 new tracks selected by J. Cole.

Long-term support for the popular sports game isn’t stopping anytime soon, either. As such, players can look forward to the launch of new content in the forthcoming Season 4 rollout.

Season 4 patch notes

MyCareer during the upcoming season will let players continue their pursuit of Legend status. In addition, climbing the seasonal rewards ladder should net fresh content for fans to show off when navigating The G.O.A.T. Boat and City areas.

Those who reach the Level 40 reward tier can expect to unlock a futuristic mode of travel – a “remote-control drone with warp abilities.”

The drone acts as a vehicle that players can fly across the environment until they spy a G.O.A.T. Boat or City area worth warping to. Upon doing so, they’ll find themselves transported to the desired locale in a matter of moments.

Other rewards range from a pilot helmet to previously unseen animations and science fiction-inspired armor, seen in the image above.

If Hayes scores 10 points during the Janaury 19 match, his Amethyst card will evolve to Diamond status. In the event he doesn’t play, the Diamon Evolution will still occur so long as the Pistons win.
