NBA 2K17: The Prelude Guide

by Anthony Decicco


Want to get a head start on your career in NBA 2K17? Look no further than NBA2K17: The Prelude which is much more than a glorified demo. It allows you to play five full games of your players beginning career in college and more.

The game will start out by having you create your MyPLAYER and choose a college. There are a lot of cutscenes as NBA 2K17 has gone for a more cinematic story experience which is pretty neat. Check out the guide below for all the trophy/achievements you need.

You’ve Got The Look
Simply create a character in the MyPLAYER option or go straight to MyCAREER and it forces you to create a character. Once you create your character, you’re done.

Complete the tutorial game. You can do this while the game is finishing downloading from the server or wait until you played through the games in MyCareer. Just play through the entire 10:00 game.

Off We Go
[MISSABLE] After you play through the MyCAREER aspect of the game you should have accrued enough coins to purchase an attribute upgrade from the MyPlayer Store on the main menu. Just go in, select attributes and upgrade one. They usually run you around 350 coins. If you complete the main career without at least that much or a little more, you can miss this one.

The New Me
This can be done at any time, at the main menu go to MyPLAYER inventory, NBA/Pro-Am Animations and change shots, dunks or dribble moves and it will unlock.

Higher Education
This will be one of the first things you do, pick a college and there you go.

The Clock Strikes Midnight
Participate in the first game. You don’t have to win it.

Home Sweet Home
Participate in the second game. You don’t have to win it.

The Future Is Bright
Participate in the third game. You don’t have to win it.

Can’t Do It Alone
Participate in the fourth game. You don’t have to win it.

You Gotta Represent
After the main story leading up to 2K17 finishes you are given a chance to pre-order/purchase NBA2K17. Go back and you should have two options, play a special bonus game or pre-order/purchase. Complete the bonus game and enjoy.


There you have it, you have set your MyPLAYER up for success. NBA 2K17 is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on September 20th. Pre-ordering will allow early access on the 15th.
