MyTEAM 2K18 Dev Blog Associate Producer Peter Cornforth
Wow, its already time to start talking about MyTEAM again. While you were watching last year’s NBA season and playing NBA 2K17 we were hard at work building amazing new features for our upcoming NBA 2K18 MyTEAM mode. There are a ton of new features and content coming this year but I want to start with two all-new game modes we will be adding.
Pack and Playoffs
Not only did we bring back the prize boards from MyTEAM Blacktop we added new exclusive players you can’t get anywhere else. There are also special cards that you can pull that will give you an edge on your competition. In addition to that we’ve also added a prize ladder. The further you advance before being eliminated the bigger the prize you can earn. There is even a grand prize for the Finals Champion. The best part is you can draft your team and play all you want for free.
As you play matches and win games you can claw your way up through the leagues earning prizes at the culmination of each round. Grand prizes will be awarded for your combined performance in each round at the end of every season. Be careful though, you can also lose points for a loss. In Super Max every game matters so show up ready to play.
Coaches also have gem level colors and rarity from Bronze all the way to Diamond this year. Depending on the level of your coach you will be able to bring more Strategy Cards into each game and get a bigger boost multiplier when you burn them.
Also, new to the auction house this year are stacks. You can now sell stacks of 20 consumable items like shoes, badges, and contracts rather than posting each one individually.
This year you will unlock prizes just for exploring and playing the mode. We’ve introduced MyTEAM Goals which will guide you through your entire MyTEAM experience from exploring the menus on your first day all the way through completing each game mode. If you’re ever not sure what to do next just open up your goals menu.
Other awesome stuff
We’ve upgraded our main menu to include progress tracking for all of our play modes all in one place. You will be able to check out your next Domination match-up, your challenge tokens, and see when the next MyTEAM Super Max round starts all in one dashboard view right on the main menu each time you enter the mode.
…and so much more awesome to come.
NBA 2K18 MyTEAM mode is adding so many new features, new game modes, and new content it’s shaping up to be the biggest MyTEAM we’ve ever done. Launch day is right around the corner so I need to go back to helping the most talented and dedicated team of artists, producers, and engineers I have ever worked with finish up all of the final touches that will make this the best MyTEAM experience ever.
