NBA 2K’s popular MyCAREER Story Mode will feature an all-new narrative and a Hollywood-packed cast this year.
Idris Elba and Rosario Dawson take top billing, playing a basketball coach, and the player character’s advisor respectively. Joining them will be Jaleel White, Thomas Middleditch, and Ernie Hudson. Ex-Chicago Bulls star, Scottie Pippen, and The King himself, LeBron James, will also appear.
The new trailer, which dropped on Day 1 of Gamescom 2019, revealed the star-studded line-up for this cinematic narrative.
“An entire film made entirely of video game scenes has never been done in this way before. What we were able to accomplish in this year’s MyCAREER mode is an example of what’s ‘NEXT’ in moviemaking and in gaming,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global Marketing for NBA 2K.
Pre-orders for NBA 2K20, which is available for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch from September 6, are now open.
