Now that next-gen consoles are here, NBA 2K21 has some new features for players to check out. This guide shows players how the unlock The City.
When NBA 2K21 released for the last generation of consoles back in September it didn’t perform particularly well with critics or fans either one, and most felt that the series had mostly stagnated. The game’s microtransactions in particular were are big knock against the game, especially in the Neighborhood portion of the MyCareer mode. In order to get players to keep coming back with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game, new features were promised.
One such feature that has arrived with the current generation of consoles is The City. This is very similar to the original version of the game’s The Neighborhood, but is much larger and gives players much more things to explore and check out. Accessing The City isn’t as easy as just hopping into the game though, so players will need to put in a little bit of work. This guide shows players how to unlock The City.
NBA 2K21: How to Unlock The City
In order to access The City, players will first need to start up a MyCareer session and go through all of the tutorial portions. Once this has been done players will eventually be able to access the MyCareer menu and scroll down until they see the option to enter The City. Sadly, they are unable to just drop right in at this time and will still need to put in some work.
By selecting that option though players will be taken to four outdoor basketball courts that they can play against other players on. In order to enter The City from here, players will need to take part in games until they are able to raise their MyRep level up high enough until they can join an Affiliation. Affiliations require that the player reach the Pro 1 rank, but they will start at the Rookie 1 rank.
To raise their rank they will have to play against other basketball players on the blacktop. Three of these courts allow the player to engage in 3v3 games, whereas the fourth court allows them to play 1v1. By playing games players will earn points to boost their ranking, so they will just need to keep going until they are at the Pro 1 rank and can enter The City.
NBA 2K21 can be played on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.
