It’s my honor to be the first person to welcome you to NBA 2K18!The team here at Visual Concepts has made some HUGE strides with the game this year, which we will be telling you about in the coming weeks. Those are the exact three words I lead off with last year in NBA 2K17’s My GM/My LEAGUE blog.Centered around you, the GM, you will need to navigate backroom scenarios while dealing with expectations from your owner, your staff, the press, other GMs, and of course, your players.How your My GM experience turns out is completely up to you.It put you face-to-face with your owner, staff, and players.Your actions drove the narrative of your franchise, unlike any mode had ever done before.Pioneering is something that I personally enjoy doing.
While My CAREER focuses on your life as an NBA player out to achieve superstardom, My GM: The Next Chapter aims to view the NBA world from the complete opposite perspective.Supporting the new changes was never a question; our continued aim is to be fully authentic. The following are some quick hits of changes that we have implemented to show you the breadth of our coverage of the changes, no matter how minute they may be: – Super Max Contracts: We all read about Steph Curry’s 5yr/1M contract this summer.And James Harden’s 4yr/9M extension that will pay him 8M over the next 6 years.– NBA 2K17 saw the introduction of the League Expansion feature, Dynamic Rule Changes, the Start Today game mode, the ability to upload and share your created team packages, and so much more.In NBA 2K18, we are taking My GM to the next level (and SO much more).Over the past many years, we have added feature after feature to our My GM and My LEAGUE modes.During that time, the line between the two modes became fairly blurred, in my opinion.Your path will be determined by the choices you make and the answers you provide at the many key points in the narrative.Understand, I’m intentionally being a little vague regarding the main plot of the story, as I want you to experience it firsthand rather than through thinly veiled spoilers.We’ve designed a story that will delight and entertain without infringing on the plans you have for your roster.Draft, trade, and contract decisions are not spoon fed by the writing. NBA 2K18’s My GM: The Next Chapter allows you to experience the life of a GM like never before, as you will be required to manage the morale and expectations of your owner, front office staff, coaching staff, and of course, your players.
