This article will take you through all of the NBA 2K24 Editions and explain to you what their pre-order bonuses and inclusions are.

When Does NBA 2K24 Release On All Platforms?

NBA 2K24 will release on September 8 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Last-Gen hasn’t been left out so it is nice that NBA 2K continues to offer that support. Although only PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S will have crossplay support so you won’t have to worry about not being able to play with friends if you are on those platforms.

We know that unfortunately, this means Nintendo Switch users will once again (as with many other games) not be able to take part in any crossplay. This has been confirmed by 2K so there is a very low likelihood that crossplay is added for the platform in the future. Nonetheless, those on the Switch will still be able to take part in everything else.

Is the NBA 2K24 25th Anniversary Edition Worth It?

With a hefty price tag of $149.99, you may be wondering if the 25th Anniversary edition is actually worth it — and you wouldn’t be alone in thinking about that. However, if you are a heavy Basketball fan (and a collector in-game) then the 25th Anniversary edition will likely be very well worth it to you: especially because of the NBA League Pass for 12 months.
