NBA 2K17 releases September 20th, early tip-off confirmed

NBA 2K17 will be available September 20th, but a pre-order will let you ball virtually four days early.

Pacers Guard/Forward Paul George was revealed as the NBA 2K17 cover athlete last night at the NBA 2K16 "Road to the Finals" tournament. Along with the cover, a release date of September 20th was given. Also returning is the early tip-off weekend option for those who pre-order the game. This means that a pre-order of NBA 2K17 will allow you to receive the game four days earlier on September 16th.

Fans who pre-order the standard edition will receive the following:

  • 5,000 virtual currency
  • MyTEAM Bundle 

More pre-order bonuses will be revealed at a later date. Also available for pre-order are the Kobe Bryant Legend Edition for $79.99 and the Kobe Bryant Legend Edition Gold for $99.99. The Legend edition includes:

  • 70,000 additional virtual currency
  • 2 Additional MyTEAM packs (guaranteed Michael Jordan card)
  • Nike Kobe shoe collection (in game, not real life)
  • Special Kobe lenticular cover insert 

NBA 2K17 will hit retailers on September 20th, 2016 and will be available for last and new gen consoles as well as PC.

    For someone who doesn't follow the NBA much, these games are some of the most fun I've played.
